Bird Bros Ltd

Bird Bros Ltd

In the mid 60’s, Carl and Peter hatched a plan.  The twin brothers decided to buy a small derelict farmhouse and a piece of land in Bedfordshire, and soon set about building their first henhouse. The egg industry was in its infancy at the time, with eggs considered a luxury protein packed food item, but the brothers saw the potential for building a future-ready egg business. It is fair to say the farm was a very different place back then – the chickens had to share with several other tenants including a dozen cows, two horses, twenty or-so sheep, two dogs and a goat (named Billy!). After much hard work and determination, Bird Bros eggs began to move up the pecking order, realising that the happier the birds, the tastier the eggs. This became the founding principle for their rapidly growing business and is one that lives on today. Fast forward 50 years and Bird Bros are now supplying over four million beautiful fresh eggs each week across the UK.  We’re proud to deliver our eggs to a combination of smaller independent shops, national retailers, and large-scale wholesale and food service providers. Sons Matthew and Stuart have come aboard along the way and with a loyal and dedicated team, they are growing and evolving the business for the future.
