I now have over a hundred laying quail on the farm and as you can imagine I am really busy at the moment looking after the quail, collecting the eggs and trying to sell all the quail eggs.
My husband, Steve and I are really pleased with the packaging we have designed and the name Hugo House is after my husband’s Grandfather who was a butcher and farmer and lived on the farm that we now live on. Unfortunately I never got to meet Steve’s Grandad but I am sure that I would have loved him and wish that he could be here now to see all the animals that I have returned to the farm.
My brother-in-law thinks it’s funny how they spent years slowly getting rid of the animals his Grandad had and now I am bringing them back to the farm, he often wonders what animal will return next!
I am beginning to supply farmshops and delicatessens with my quail eggs as well as some pubs and restaurants.
Today I also managed to organise a pitch at a local Farmer’s Market so the third Saturday in September I will be calling out, “Roll up, roll up, get yer Hugo House Quail Eggs here!”
