The Healthier Choice…
Thank you for visiting Butler’s Organics website. We are a family run business based in Hacketstown, Co Carlow. Established in 2006, when we had 250 organic hens we created the following mission:
“We provide value to customers by producing, grading, packing and delivering quality organic eggs. Our specialist organic farm consistently meets and exceeds customer expectations. Our eggs are produced in Carlow, where hens roam free on organic pastures and feed on a strict organic diet. We pride ourselves on excellent animal welfare standards and the quality and taste of our eggs.”
Our hens are free-ranging on organic pasture, which means we don’t use chemicals or artificial fertilisers when cultivating the land.
Why pay more?
We are often asked are our hens free range. They are free range and more. Organic hens are the only hens that are fed on organic food and range on organic pasture. This means that organic eggs are the only eggs that are chemical free. Organic birds also have much more space both indoors and outdoors than free range birds. We are the most regulated section in the egg industry. Your organic eggs cost more than regular/free range eggs because organic feed is nearly double the price of regular feed.

As consumers are becoming more aware of the benefits of eating healthy the demand for organic continues to grow. Over the years we expanded gradually, ensuring all of our birds were allowed the freedom to roam on organic pastures and have plenty of space indoors with a very sought after large scratch area (sought after by the birds!). We now supply stores across Dublin, Wicklow, Carlow and Kildare with the freshest of organic eggs.
IOA (Irish Organic Association) certifies our farm. IOA ensure a rigorously maintained set of production and processing standards and a certification scheme for organic food. This ensures that unlike any other eggs produced, including free-range eggs, there is no chemicals, antibiotics or artificial fertilizers used in the birds’s diet or on their pastures.
We aim to produce eggs to the highest quality and our efforts are paying off with more and more people deciding to go organic.
Ask the experts!
“Imagine hens that roam freely on the finest organic pastures, eggs that are higher in nutritional value with darker golden yolks that taste divine, marry this with David & Paula’s passion and drive for excellence and you have a Butler’s Organic egg. I call David & Paula one of our “food heroes”, an absolute pleasure to deal with. Butler’s Organic eggs are a quality product. Long may they keep supplying and making us chefs and customers very happy people.”
