JSR Services (Blairgowrie) Ltd have 2 free range and 1 organic laying farm all set in the heart of rural Perthshire no more than 30 mins from our familys headquarters In Blairgowrie.
Our flock consists of 40,000 Free range and 12,000 Organic birds and are all house in the highest welfare facilities available. All our farms are freedom foods registered and are audited several times a year to ensure our staff and facilities are at the highest level. JSR Services Organic farm is registered with the Scottish Organic Producers Association who insist on the highest level of bird welfare and organic standards. All the staff employed on these farms have had extensive training on bird welfare and best practices not only in house but from the relevent governing bodies. JSR Services also have all their farm employees do the government and freedom foods Food Hygiene accreditation as they are not just considered stock farmers but food producers of the highest quality.
All the birds on our farms have come from JSR Services own rearing farms. This ensures quality of pullet which helps give consistency in supply to our packer. Our Scottish reared birds lay Scottish eggs so we feel its important to work with Scottish packers to give a genuinely Scottish egg. Our Fee Range eggs are taken daily and packed by Glenrath Farms, a family run company in Peebles. Glenrath Farms are the largest Scottish packer of Eggs supplying to all major supermarkets. Our Organic eggs go north to another Scottish family run packer Farmlay Eggs. Farmlay are based in Striken, Aberdeenshire and supply eggs to Lidel, Aldi and local outlets all over Scotland. All eggs that leave our farms are individually stamped so there is full tractability of our product. They are placed on to plastic trays and pallets which are cleaned after every use. Both packers we work with have temperature controlled transportation and first class state of the art packing centers. This was important when we choose to work with these packers as we know they will deliver our first class eggs to the shop shelves to the standard we want them too.
All farms are run to highest bio security standards and are freedom foods and RSPCA BEIC registered, these registration assure our packers and their customers that our birds are being looked after to the highest welfare standards, they are allowed outside on to pasture which is mowed on a regular basis and is also planted in trees to give our free range hens the most natural environment possible. to allow them to produce stress free range eggs for our customers.
Eggs are collected daily from all our sheds and are packed and stamped with the method of production i.e Free Range or Organic also our farm producer number and of course SCO to make sure no matter where our eggs are found in the food supply chain they can be fully traced to the farm of production. All farms have temperature controlled egg stores and are all packed on plastic trays and pallets which allows them to be cleaned and washed thoroughly between every use. This allows us to maintain the highest standard of hygiene for all our eggs.
During their stay with us all our hens are strictly monitored to make sure they have adequate feed, water, light, in a temperature controlled environment and they are even weighed weekly to monitor their daily health and welfare.as they continue through their laying cycle.
