Introducing our brands
Here at the Lakes Free Range Egg Company we work closely with retailers to supply free range and organic free range eggs, be that own label or one of our respected brands, packed with provenance.
The Lakes brand is underpinned by our environmental and animal welfare ethos and produced on farms local to our factory. Launched in 2012 our Laid with Love™ brand has the same provenance, with added health benefits and it also supports Cancer Research UK.
The taste of outstanding natural goodness
The Lakes brand packaging is new, but the provenance behind ‘The Lakes’ free range eggs remains as strong as ever – it keeps us at the leading edge of welfare, ethical and environmental standards.
‘The Lakes’ free range eggs are produced on small family farms that are range enriched. By this we mean hen ranges that have plenty of trees and shrubs so the hens can shelter. Our farmers plant native trees and hedges to promote indigenous wildlife and improve the free range habitat for our hens. This is core to our ethos and we are proud to work with some of the best feathered and most laid back hens you could meet. That’s why we have confidence in The Lakes – a gloriously free range product.
The Lakes Organic – the latest free range addition
Demand for our organic free range eggs has grown, so we have recently developed our Lakes Organic brand, creating packaging that sits comfortably alongside its free range sister brand.
Laid With Love ™
Designed with health and wellbeing in mind, Laid with Love™ eggs have extra yellow yolks and can be found in a bright pink egg box on which sits a very contented Henrietta Hen. We donate 2p per dozen eggs to Cancer Research UK.
Eggstra special health benefits
These eggs are produced by hens fed on Lutein – a powerful natural anti-oxidant which is extracted from marigolds. Lutein occurs naturally in food like kale, carrots and corn, but the only animal source is eggs. Lutein has lots of health benefits too – it’s good for your heart, brain and eyes (people take Lutein supplements to help prevent age related macular degeneration)
Laid With Love™ eggs contain more Lutein than standard eggs, which means there are even more anti-oxidants– so they’re even healthier for you too.…. and by donating 2p per dozen to support Cancer Research UK, we think it makes them taste even better.
You can take the yolk test to see and taste the difference. Simply crack a Laid with Love™ egg into a cup, whisk it and compare it to a normal egg. You’ll see the difference and we think they taste better too!
