The Lakes Free Range Egg Company supplies free range and organic free range eggs

“We have a consistent supply of raw material to a quality level that is unsurpassed by others in the industry. With it comes a welfare, ethical and environmental provenance that is the envy of our competition”

From the single farming operation we began over 25 years ago, the Lakes Free Range Egg Company produces and packs free range and organic free range eggs for discerning retail and food service customers across the UK.

Here at ‘The Lakes’, we have increased the number of flocks on our farms and grown a network of free range egg producers who live and work on small family farms – all sharing our ethical principles.

As industry pioneers, The Lakes developed a brand new, state of the art packing factory and were the first to ‘enrich’ ranges with tree planting and remain the only packer demanding all producers have biodiversity action plans.

Producers are assisted with tree planting to support their biodiversity action plans. It encourages their free range hens to roam and shelter in a more ‘enriched’ habitat. In turn, we have a consistent supply of raw material to a quality level that unsurpassed by others in the industry. With it comes a welfare, ethical and environmental provenance that’s the envy of competitors and appreciated by our customers.

Whilst operating from some of the most modern egg packing facilities in the country, we still retain the close-knit local family connections that pervade our company.

‘The Lakes’ has built strong relationships with our producers and customers and we are proud to work in partnership, researching ways to improve animal welfare and enrich our environment. We aim to leave the world a better place.
