Our Story...

GreenEggs is a family owned and operated free range egg producer, located in the Grampians region of country Victoria.

Our farm in Great Western consists of 1200 acres of rolling hills, home not only to 25,000 hens but also sheep, cattle, our wonderful working dogs, and Shelley and Alan Green.  Our other farm is located at Lake Fyans and is home to another 10,000 hens, more ewes and lambs, 2 working dogs and Minnie and Lachie Green.

GreenEggs have an outstanding reputation for quality, taste, freshness and service. We have been producing eggs for over 15 years and pride ourselves on not only our product but our production methods.

We operate our production systems under a full farm plan, whereby we sustainably produce exceptional eggs and deliver them directly to our customers in Melbourne, and throughout our local region. For more information on our full farm plan, please see the 'Our Farm' page

 

THE GREEN FAMILY

The Next Generation...

After 18 years of hard work Shelley and Alan Green are preparing to hand over the reins to Minnie and Lachie Green.

Lachie spent much of his teenage years collecting eggs after school and learning the ins and outs of becoming a stock man of not only sheep and cattle but chooks. Lachie who is now our head of production, has recently completed a Nuffield Scholarship. He was sponsored by the Australian Egg Corporation Ltd, to travel the world researching Food Safety and the egg industry. GreenEggs takes its responsibility to produce a quality, safe egg very seriously.

Minnie Green, who has been working in Melbourne as a commercial lawyer has recently come into the business full time as General Manager. Minnie brings with her commercial experience and sound business skills. We hope that the inclusion of Minnie into the team full time, will allow even more growth of the business and develop the relationships we now hold with our customers.

Our Farm ...

As a working farm, with lambing ewes, wethers, cows, yearling cattle and 36,000 truly free range chooks, we are a family business with a working farm at its core.

Our full farm plan allows us to operate a truly sustainable system that includes spreading the manure from the hens back on to our pastures in the form of organic fertilizer. Similarly, our sheep are often used to graze down the pasture in our hens’ yards in summer time, as part of our fire prevention strategies.

The Green Team ...

Green Eggs operates in a small country town with a population of 644 and our business is an important employment hub for local people. GreenEggs is a proud member of the local community and we are actively involved in it. We regularly donate eggs to local community groups and charities, we have always been and continue to be actively involved in Land Care.

We have an established relationship with the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre in Melbourne, and fortnightly we provided them with eggs at cost of production to assist newly arrived asylum seekers.

We also have developed a relationship with the Melbourne Zoo who use our eggs to make scrumptious cakes and mixes for wombats, lions and lots of other animals as part of their diet.

GreenEggs also donate eggs to a variety of local sporting and service industries to assist them in their fundraising, as well as donating eggs on a regular basis to Food Bank who provide assistance to people facing food security issues

Some other feathers in the Green Eggs cap...

Green Eggs is chuffed to have been awarded a few gongs recently, showing that some hard work does pay off. Big thanks of course goes to the Green Eggs girls, without which these awards are simply meaningless.

GreenEggs was the first egg producer in Australia to be accredited under the peak industry body’s accreditation system which has now evolved to Australian Eggs.   It is always a great honour to have our hard work, and wonderful product recognised by others, and over the years GreenEggs has been the proud recipient of several awards.
