We’re so excited to share our unique range of handmade Easter eggs with you!
This year our own talented team have been busy crafting our Easter egg packaging, featuring designs drawn entirely by hand by Helena, our Designer. We’re also proud that our eggs include no plastic in their packaging this year, a positive step towards a plastic free future! Read more about our range below.All our handmade Easter eggs are the result of a tasty collaboration between Alex, our Buyer, and chocolate expert, Claire Beck of The Cocoabean Company. Find our hollow eggs in four different flavours including honeycomb, praline, toffee shop fudge and 82% dark chocolate and mint.
Our filled eggs are packed with delicious chocolates including Marc de Champagne truffles, salted caramel truffles and our very special mint fondants made using Mitcham mint oil, a rare single-estate peppermint oil grown and distilled at Summerdown Farm in Hampshire.
Brand new for this year are our sets of four filled eggs. They’re filled with some of our very favourite ingredients that you can find in our Farmshop including salted caramel made by Hawkshead, using Halen Môn Salt, smooth Peanut butter made by Manilife and scrumptious Marc de Champagne truffle.
We are proud that our Eggs use no plastic in their packaging this year. We want to continue to build on this. We’ve made a strong commitment as a business to reduce our use of plastic, in particular single use plastic and we are working through our range of packaging to look at opportunities.
Last year we introduced a loyalty card to encourage the use of reusable cups. We are also working hard with packaging partners on making our single use cup more sustainable and hope to share more news on this soon.
A positive change we are making right now is drastically reducing the amount of plastic bags used in our Farmshops and Filling Stations. Last year we used over 180,000 of these bags across our business and we’re committed to reducing that number. We took the decision a few months ago not to reorder plastic bags, so what will we use instead?
– We now have a brand new 10p paper bag, strong enough to carry wine and suitable for meat. However, you will still be entitled to a free bag if you are buying meat products in line with guidelines.
– We are also working on a beautiful new fabric bag with a percentage from each sold donated to local charities.
Over the next few weeks you may still see some of our plastic bags handed out while we move over to our new paper bags. We hope you like them. We will keep you updated with more positive changes as we move towards a plastic free future!
