We are part of a larger farming family. We all run our own organic farms in Sussex and all the younger cousins have grown up helping out on the farm whenever they are needed. Our amazing Gran and Great Gran, was a farmer during the 2nd World War and until her retirement. She sold free range eggs locally……so it’s in the genes. She lived until she was 102.
Mum and dad set up ‘Grassington Rangers’ in 1985 (Grassington Farm hatched from there) and they were one of the first farms to supply free range eggs to the supermarkets, later progressing into organic egg farming.
Susie has appeared on television with Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty, fighting the cause for pullet or ‘mini’ eggs. More recently her farm (The Macs Farm) featured on Countryfile. Susie was explaining how much better it is for eggs to be sold in mixed sizes, as that’s how they’re laid.
