Chicken feed

We have recently changed our chicken feed from standard layers pellets from a local(ish) producer, to non-GM soya-free pellets from the Smallholder Range. This feed comes in paper sacks rather than plastic, which we can then either use as a mulch on the farm beneath wood-chip, or recycle with our paper.

This is something that we have been working towards for a while, and we have finally got enerything in place - including extra rodent-proof storage - to make the switch. The new feed costs £10 per sack, compared to £6.90 for the old feed, so we have had to increase the price of our eggs from £1.60 to £1.90 per half dozen.
