Beautiful rolling farmland and blue skies

That's Aberdeenshire and we're committed to keeping it that way which is why here at farmlay eggs we are keen to invest in renewables technology to ensure we're doing as much for our environment as possible.

In 2010, farmlay embarked on a £1.2 million investment in an 800kWh wind turbine at our main egg production facility. On a windy day we power our entire production facility with green electricity and even have enough spare to supply to the grid.

Our day old chicks love to be kept warm so in 2012 we replaced our existing gas heating system with 1MWh biomass installation. Comprising of two Hertz biofire 500 boilers and some monstrous pipe work (to keep heat losses at a minimum) our rearing facilities are kept toasty whilst caring for the environment.

Our state of the art laying facilities are at the forefront of technology and are also geared towards the environment, well insulated and intelligent enough to know when "Natural" ventilation should be used.

Food miles are also important, which is why we run our own fleet of vehicles, this allows us to plan our own collections and deliveries to lower food miles and reduce CO2 emissions.
