Farmaround was the first ever Box Scheme in the UK and has now been running for over 22 years. Originally conceived as a vegetarian company delivering assorted boxes of fresh organic produce and award-winning cruelty free Hen Nation eggs. In 2016, we were able to start a dedicated Northern branch based on a well-established organic farm in Yorkshire, enabling us to offer our customers some of the freshest vegetables you can buy!
The selection of produce in the boxes varies each week according to the time of year and availability. If there are any types of fruit or vegetables you don’t like, these can be omitted from your bags and suitable replacements made. We work hard to bring you the best selection and value for money and have a large variety of bags to choose from. We also have a ‘Pick Your Own’ section where you can create your own bespoke order.
With each delivery comes my newsletter/blog with recipes and farm news. Any reference to Myfa is my beloved black Labrador!
We remain a small, principled independent company who campaign for ethical causes, in particular for animal welfare issues. We promote organic agriculture for the health of our eco-systems, our wildlife and to improve our own diet by reducing the consumption of toxic chemicals. If you have any questions, please get in touch. We would be happy to help.
We offer Hen Nation Eggs - the most animal welfare-friendly brand ever following a model of production which enables each hen to live out its full natural life.
In a normal system, whether battery or indeed free-range, hens are generally gassed or killed by other means at 72 weeks, though this has just been reduced to 68 weeks for many. The 1200 hens that make up this farm would have been facing the end of their lives - deemed by the egg industry to be past the age of reliable, consistent egg laying. The support of Farmaround has meant that they can live happy, traditional, free-range lives - free to graze grass and forage in traditional hay meadows in their North Yorkshire home with many egg laying years left ahead. These lucky hens will now live out the rest of their natural lives assured of the very best love, care and attention and this in turn will provide Farmaround customers with tasty high welfare eggs from truly happy hens.
Hen Nation eggs are truly free-range and are sold in half-dozen boxes. They are 'as they come' - a mixture of mainly medium and large with the occasional 'little one'.
One box of eggs a week saves the life of one hen!
We deliver throughout the northeast of England but if you want to confirm whether we can get to you, simply use the box on the right or get in touch with our office.
Our drivers come out in weekly rounds, making deliveries as environmentally friendly as we possible. They are more than used to following instructions so should it be very early or you are not in when they arrive they can hide your box wherever you desire. Just be sure to let us know - be it under a hedge, in a shed or with a neighbour. We collect and reuse all the old boxes so leave yours out on delivery day and we will put it to a good home!
If we don't seem to deliver to your area, don't despair, contact us and we will see if there is anything we can do to help.
