With 80 units across 17 farms, L J Fairburn and Son Limited may have grown into an enterprise which can now boast at being one of the largest egg producers and packers in the UK. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the commitment to family values, business integrity and loyalty on which the business was originally built. L J Fairburn and Son Limited is now owned by Stuart and Judy Fairburn and run by their Son, Managing Director, Daniel Fairburn. Daniel is supported by his wife Sarah Louise, Brand & Sales Director, and Sisters Caroline Fairburn-Wright, Business Director and Sarah Hall, Operations Director. All passionate about the business, family values and sustainability are at the core of everything they do. alistairThe business now has 5m laying and rearing hens – 4m are owned by Fairburn’s and 1m are contract producer owned. Rearing in excess of two million pullets every year for their own use and re-sale, the Fairburn family also mill over 80,000 tonnes of feed each year, including grain grown on their 2,000 acre arable farm. The family even have their own expanding fleet of 14 lorries to distribute feed, collect eggs and deliver finished products to retail partners. Production, milling and packing facilities are all within a 25 mile radius which helps to facilitate its integration through carefully managed processes. In control of every process from day old chick to the family fridge, a short and finely tuned supply chain delivers the freshest eggs of the finest quality. The family commitment has always been to re-invest in the business to ensure it continues successfully for future generations.
