We are creating a new way to provide affordable fresh free range eggs to the people, from our farm gate directly into your hands, removing all the middle men, reducing the cost to you and the most exciting thing… we will also be giving the school back $1.00/dozen as a fundraising donation.  We are shifting the profit margin from the store owners to the community.

We are a local Free-Range and Organic Egg Farm based in the Manawatū and are starting out on this new initiative hoping to expand it out across the country. We are SUPER EXCITED that The RSS Supporter’s Club has decided to be our first pilot school. So welcome and thank you!!!

When you currently buy eggs at the supermarket, the free range and organic eggs are set at prices that are cost prohibitive to a lot of the community, generally already 2-3 weeks old and costing us as a producer up to $0.40 per dollar to have on the shelves. We decided there has to be a better way. WE can provide you extremely fresh eggs that were laid within 24 hours prior to delivery, with a high nutritional value, that we farmed sustainably and ethically. We are proud of what we do!!

So how will this work… 

  • Each family of the school and community will need to subscribe to us on the following form. You can either pay by a one off online automatic payment for a set period (term) or a weekly automatic payment to be set up for the Thursday before collection.
  • Delivery days – Mon 10th Feb – Mon 6th April – 9 Mondays)
  • We will deliver your eggs weekly on a Monday for you to collect. PLEASE NOTE – YOUR EGGS MUST BE COLLECTED ON THIS DAY!!!!

We are currently building a website that will make all the admin side a lot easier for us all, it will be ready for term 2. It will allow more flexibility in the orders, to set holiday spells, re-occurring billing/payment etc but until then we are limited to these two ordering and payment options so please get your information back to me and payment sorted before 7th February if you would like to be involved in the project this term. If you would like to join after this date, please get in touch with myself on the below email.

Also, we are offering to Russell Street School the opportunity to come and visit our farm for half a day…. come meet Lucy, our pet chicken……hunt for some eggs under the pine nuts, race with some spoons and learn about ethical and sustainable food production.

Use the form linked below to make your order now!
