The Champion family has been farming at Badgers Mead Farm in Five Ashes, between Heathfield and Mayfield, East Sussex, for nearly 30 years.
After 20 years as a successful sheep and cattle farmer, Nev Champion turned to poultry and became the very first KellyBronze franchisee in Great Britain. Paul Kelly, founder of KellyBronze, describes Nev as one of his 'Hero Farmers'.
Nev began egg production in 2008. The quality of Badgers Mead Farm’s land and the abundance of trees gives the hens the freedom to roam from dawn until dusk.
At night, they have warm large hen houses to sleep
in. For you, this means extra tasty
It is such a lovely setting that Freedom Foods have filmed the hens at Badgers Mead Farm.
Badgers Mead Farm now supplies supermarkets, local restaurants, pubs, shops, schools, and you can also buy direct from the farm door.
