The Lakes Free Range Egg Company is a family owned business producing and packing free range and organic free range eggs. Based in the heart of Cumbria ‘The Lakes’ is industry leading in its approach to animal welfare and environmental provenance.


Set up in 1997, The Lakes Free Range Egg Company has always stuck to a simple ethos – to provide the best habitats for our organic and free-range hens. To us, that involves ‘range enrichment’ (tree planted pasture) supported by bio-diversity action plans and ensuring our producers follow the same approach. It is a sustainable, environmentally friendly production model that works.

As innovators ‘The Lakes’ constantly looks for ways to reduce energy consumption and has designed and built a state of the art egg packing facility with a very low carbon footprint. Where we lead, others follow.

Our quality is guaranteed by using higher standards than codes of practice require, including RSPCA Assured, British Egg Industry Council and British Retail Council. It means we are happy to supply some of the most demanding retail and food service customers in the country.

We were the first in the country to guarantee farm of origin for all our eggs and still lead the field today. We are proud of our products and all our farmer suppliers, so if your egg comes from us, you can type in the egg code and “Trace your Egg” to the farm of origin. If you don’t have an egg to hand, try using the code 1UK10332 in the box.
