Fairburn’s Eggs is a third-generation Lincolnshire family business, first founded in 1951 by Jim Fairburn, who purchased 150 chickens for £150. From those humble beginnings, Fairburn’s Eggs have taken the food and agriculture industry by storm, becoming the largest, independent, family-owned egg producer in the UK, packing and distributing an astonishing 17 million eggs a week. A few years ago, Fairburn’s made the decision to go independent.
