Our Story

Though Zealand Farms is a young enterprise, it comes with a long history. Zealand Farms was created in 2017 as a venture between Eco Eggs and The Big Egg, two long-established Horowhenua egg and poultry businesses.

Ours is a shared history of taking a leading role in this country’s development of free-range egg and hen farming.  With over 40 years combined experience and a previous long standing business relationship we discovered a like mindedness, a desire to produce nothing but great hens and great eggs.

With a passion for the great outdoors Free Range and Organic made great sense. At Zealand Farms we are focused on producing great food and we feel strongly that greatness comes from freedom. Our hens enjoy this freedom and we know this results in great eggs.

And, we could tell you a lot about the ways in which we continue to introduce new and better ideas to keep at the forefront of our industry. But, we’re farmers who believe that simple is best.
