Grantstown Free Range Eggs
A family-run free range egg business operating for the past 21 years. The business was established when Matt Bergin saw a gap in the market and an opportunity to develop a commercial free range poultry business.
Matt was raised on a farm in the Rathdowney/Ballacolla area, known as a stronghold for beef and dairy farming, and always had an interest in animals. “Having been raised as a farmer, food production has always been at the heart of what I do. You could say I know nothing else!” explains Matt. At Grantstown the hens roam free through green pastures and are provided with well-equipped housing to keep them safe at night.“The feeding regime is simple; grass grazing supplemented by natural grains and cereal with a continuous supply of fresh water,” says Matt. “Here too they feed, drink and lay our wonderful Grantstown fresh free range eggs,” he added.
Grantstown is a modern well equipped and market driven company who produce and pack their quality free range eggs in Grantstown and distribute throughout Laois, Offaly, Kilkenny and Tipperary to shops, hotels and restaurants. Their products range from the traditional half dozen box for the householder to large trays for the commercial users.
