Benniks eggs get SPCA tick

benniks2 Benniks Barn Eggs gets the SPCA tick. The List is right behind any endorsement made by the SPCA.

Second generation egg farmer Harry Bennik believes in keeping healthy hens in an animal friendly environment. Harry’s farm produces eggs that have been produced by hens raised in barns, not cages, and alongside the barns, there are fully free range hens producing eggs.

There are different standards applied to barn eggs as opposed to free range eggs “the hens have litter in which to scratch and dust bathe, space to flap their wings, stretch and socialise, nests in which to lay their eggs and adequate perching space. They have constant water and feed and are protected from the elements and predators.” Check the standards under SPCA auditing available from SPCA’s website, if you are interested.

The relatively new SPCA ‘Blue Tick’ logo is a guarantee to the public that food under this label meets humane welfare standards. Farms are audited annually against the SPCA criteria and can be subject to spot audits at any time. No animals are caged on SPCA accredited farms.

Make sure you look out for the SPCA tick when egg shopping.
