STORY
The Kents continue to invest in their birds, discovering
that providing them with clean air, good lighting, space,
and calm conditions resulted in happy hens and quality
products. They had a passion for raising hens in a free range
environment and disrupting the egg industry with innovative ways of humanely caring for birds and marketing eggs.
Michael Kent took ownership of his family’s business once
his parents retired, furthering its expansion and pioneering
new ideas in the egg industry.
1970-1980’s
Margaret Kent receives a wedding present of 50
chickens from her parents and decides to rent a
farm in Cornwall, England to raise hens and sell
eggs with her husband Clifford. In just ten years,
their flock increased to from 50 to 2,000 birds.
Their son Michael grew up picking eggs, working
on the farm on holidays and weekends, and helping to make feed for the hens.
