Speckled Hen Free Range eggs are the exclusive suppliers of Free Range eggs under the Midlands Eggs label. Set in the Dargle Valley all Speckled Hen laying hens are free to roam and express their natural behaviour in a safe and stress free environment.

While in the UK Vicky and Craig observed the trend towards free range chicken. And having realised that cages were no fun for animals, they decided to try out free range egg farming. In 2010 they opened the doors of Highveld Freerange farm, which now produces 4000 eggs a day.

Vicky and Craig believe “food producers should live food”. They love their own product, and are very hands on farmers - even their two young kids enjoy collecting the eggs with the farm hands. The couple believe free range should be accessible to all consumers irrespective of what they earn. So they try to keep their prices down, and religiously check that their retail customers are not marking them up exorbitantly. “In 2012, we had a run in with a retailer who marked our eggs up by 75% because it was free range. We challenged them and they brought the price back down, thankfully’” says Vicky. “It’s not necessary that this type of food should be elitist.”

Highveld eggs are sold as Speckled Hen Free Range Eggs and are available in the Midlands at Pick ‘n Pay’s and Spars, Pick ‘n Pay’s in Pietermaritzburg.
