Alex Woolam

After achieving a HND in Agriculture and a degree in Agriculture with Marketing from Harper Adams in 2004, Alex undertook work experience on farms across Australia.

Upon his return, inspired by his experience in Australia, Alex was determined to be his own boss and utilise a 70 hectare farm that was being rented out.

After several months of researching efficient businesses, Alex invested in free-range egg production; investing in 16,000 layers in December 2005.

Today, Alex continues to lead and develop the business; growing the free-range production to 64,000 hens, as well as diversifying into arable crops, a container and caravan storage business. Determined to not standing still, Alex is also looking to further add value by rearing his own replacement pullets.
