Biodynamic eggs…a new one on us!

We stumbled across a new term recently which we simply had to share with you. Hands up who’s heard of “biodynamic eggs”? No, us neither.

In a recent episode of their new series, Eating Well with Hemsley + Hemsley, Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley were seen buying biodynamic eggs from Ellie Woodcock of Brambletye Farm in Sussex, which produces Orchard Eggs.

Orchard Eggs practices biodynamic agriculture, claiming to follow high welfare standards and providing a balanced, natural environment.

On its website the firm says it keeps small flocks of chickens in moveable houses throughout 60 acres of “biodynamic orchard” on which the hens are allowed to roam freely which, of course, we love to hear!

Orchard Eggs says it rears the birds from day one without the use of antibiotics and they are fed a 100% organic grain which Daniel Hoeberichts, Manager of Orchard Eggs, told the MailOnline is planted according to the “astrological calendar”.

The eggs are certified by the Biodynamic Association Certification Scheme which follows standards set down by Demeter – the trademark for products of certified biodynamic production.

So there you have it – biodynamic eggs! As long as the hens are happy and free range then it sounds great to us.
