Cornhill Farm

Cornhill Farm has been in the hands of the Olds family since 1912. Its 350 acres support free-range egg production from 14,000 Bovan Brown hens. The eggs are available from a wide range of shops across Cornwall (which are listed on the farm’s website), can be obtained from the farm itself, and are used by many Cornish food business and restaurants and hotels.

300 acres of the farm is used to produce the grain and feed necessary for the hens. The hens themselves live in four houses, each with 10 acres of outdoor pasture. in all, 10,000 eggs are laid each day.

The hens are normally kept for up to 80 weeks. After that age, their eggs shells become too thin for commercial purposes. They still have a useful life for a smallholding or even a family garden though and so are rehomed from time to time. Check out the Cornhill Farm website for details.

Cornhill Farm is regularly audited by the RSPCA’s Freedom Foods, by Laid In Britain, and the British Egg Industry Council.

The Farm has received a Gold Award from Taste of the West, has been a finalist for Poultry Farmer of the Year, and was the winner of the South West Rural Business Awards 2021/22.
