Owner Niall Delargy started off with a dozen hens, fifteen years later he has 17,000. Those cosseted chooks have some of the best views in the country from the Cushendall fields where they roam. They lay enough free-range eggs to keep the good people of the Glens of Antrim and beyond very happy. Every egg is rigorously checked and packed using modern machinery and inkjet coding equipment to ensure the ultimate in traceability and quality, personal service and attention to detail comes as standard to them. They come in all sizes but inside they all have that bright orange yolk that shows they are 100% free-range 100% fresh 100% happy 100% certified. They’re sold to lots of retail outlets, restaurants, cafes and hotels throughout the causeway coast, and across the greater Belfast area through our agents. Eggs are all they do, but they do them very well! They even have poetry written about them
They even have poetry written about them
“The Ballyeamon Hens have got it all!
Time to sleep and time to way
Lush green grass to run and play
And that panoramic view of Cushendall
Yes! Recently I read it on an egg box I
t’s there, in print for everyone to see
If I could be a Hen in Ballyeamon
The credit crunch just wouldn’t worry me!”
A poem by Miss Kathleen McGarvey
