L J Fairburn and Son, a family business, is one of the largest egg producers and packers in the UK. The company is owned by Stuart and Judy Fairburn and run by their son, managing director, Daniel Fairburn.
And, shockingly, rearing over two million birds for their own use and re-sale, the Fairburn family also mills over 80,000 tonnes of feed each year, including grain grown on their 1,700 acre farm. They also have their own expanding fleet of lorries to distribute feed, collect eggs and deliver finished products to retail partners.
