Isuppose Im a food hero.  I supply eggs to our local shop after registering as an egg packing station last year.  They are sold the day they arrive and people are alwys looking for more.  Im trying to expand slowly, but want to remain a small, caring producer.

This is a photo that they published in the local paper!

You surely qualify, but please don't be shy, tell us more about he food you produce.

A super picture by the way. I have a great face for radio.

I can vouch for Lorry's eggs but what makes them both real "Heroes" is the stuggle they went through in the early days to just keep going to try to live their dream.
Talk about happy animals, they must think it's Utopia in Wadebridge.
Well apart from one ol' Cock a few years back nearly. Lorry had to wear a crash helmet, body armour and carry a baseball bat.
We brought a tray of eggs home and it wasn't a case of getting fed up with them, it was more just how many ways to cook them.
My best of all was just boiled, sliced, bit of salt and pepper and sarnies for work. Out of this world.
Roll on May. Two trays this time Lorry.

There are free range eggs and then there are proper free range eggs.

Some free range egg systems simply comply with the regulations inorder to be able to use the label ' free range'

You can't beat a proper free range egg. Well you can of course but I'd rather have mine par boiled in the shell.
