On 28th of this month Nith Valley Eggs turns a whole ten years old! We’ve come a long way over the years and our business has continued to grow and grow. From our humble beginnings in 2009, the company has successfully expanded and we are now officially recognised as one of the top Scottish producers of free range eggs! Our woodland farm provides our hens with the freedom to roam and produce some of the best quality free range eggs in Scotland.
Nith Valley Eggs started small in 2009, supplying eggs to another producer. Fast forward to 2012, and we found ourselves in the fantastic position of being able to purchase our first egg grader. Operating with two members of staff, we were able to grade 3500 per hour! In 2015, we were able to upgrade our machine and purchase a new grader as well as take on a new member of staff, meaning we were able to grade 14500 eggs per hour!
We were able to capitalise on this success and buy a thirty-acre site, a former quarry, which provides a unique setting for our large flock of happy hens, who produce some of the best quality free range eggs in Scotland! The woodland farm is an ideal setting for the six production sheds we have, surround by beautiful Scottish landscape.
Our large farm has been well utilised to make the perfect home for the 12,000 hens currently at Nith Valley, where they are free to run, jump, skip and climb as they please! All our ladies plus our combined contract hens are hy-line brown hens and consume 170,00 tonnes of feed each year, ensuring they are kept fit and healthy to provide enough eggs to sell to our customers.
Nith Valley endeavours to supply the very best in terms of quality and freshness to our customers. We currently sell 9,000,000 eggs per year to 130 customers all over the UK, as well as supplying our eggs to a variety of businesses, including Turnberry Hotel, K-Cal Kitchen, Kilnford Barn and Williams Cafe in Glasgow. Our vans travel around 60,000 miles per year delivery orders to customers – ranging from as far afield as Gleneagles to Turnberry and all over the central belt. Our eggs have even travelled as far as the North of England!
We have had a wonderful ten years in business and wouldn’t be where we are without our wonderful customers, so we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years, and here’s to the next ten!
