What is it?
Regenerative Agriculture is an alternative method of producing food with low environmental and social impacts.
Its core intention is to improve the health of the soil which enhances the quality of water, vegetation and land productivity.
Integrating livestock on to our farm improves soil health, sequesters carbon and helps biodiversity to flourish
Magners Farm Free Range Eggs
Our hens spend their days grazing on chemical free, natural grass with fresh air and clean water. At night they retire to their warm custom built shed.
We move them on to fresh grass every week (sometimes every day!) and they leave behind their lovely organic fertiliser for our pasture to thrive on.
This all adds up to a delicious, nutritionally dense, chemical free egg which you can trust was produced by a very happy and contented hen.
Magners Farm is located near Ballynonty village in County Tipperary - the heart of the "Golden Vale" Ireland.
Magners Farm is home to Kylie and Billy Magner and their four children Matilda, Tadhg, Imogen and Finn.
We are passionate about good food and ethical and sustainable agriculture.
Magners Farm was established by Kylie and Billy in 2017 after they returned from a 7 year stay in Australia.
Kylie grew up on a mixed farming enterprise in the Central West of New South Wales. After studying for a Bachelor of Business in Agricultural Commerce at Sydney University, Kylie undertook work in various marketing and equestrian roles from Sydney to Japan before landing in Fethard where she met her future husband Billy.
The Magners are now pursuing a life long dream of returning to farming to grow ethical and innovative produce.

Why is Pasture Range so important?
Pasture Range hens are more than just free range. Pasture Range hens have access to green, fresh pasture at all times. We move their access areas every week, sometimes every day.
This means that when a hen is fed on a diet which is closer to their natural omnivorous state, the nutrition of the egg improves significantly.
Eggs from hens raised on pasture can contain: 1⁄3 less cholesterol, 1⁄4 less saturated fat, 2⁄3 more vitamin A, 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids, 3 times more vitamin E, 7 times more beta carotene, 4-6 times more vitamin D. This is because they consume a more natural, diet including seeds, worms, insects & green plants plus a lot of sunshine.
Pasture range egg’s colour, flavour and texture are made distinctive by high amounts of Vitamin A, D, E, K2, B-12, folate, riboflavin, zinc, calcium, beta carotene, choline, and tons of omega 3 fatty acids, including DHA, EPA, ALA, and AA. A pasture-raised egg is a true superfood.
Second only to the lactalbumin protein in human mother’s milk, eggs have the highest quality protein of any food.
