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 sustainably 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 much more. Organic hens are the only hens fed on organic food and range on organic pasture. The organic farming method is sustainable and much better for the environment. Organic eggs are the only eggs that are chemical free. Our birds also have much more space both indoors and outdoors than free range birds. We are the most regulated section in the egg industry. Organic eggs cost more than regular/free range eggs because organic feed is nearly double the price of regular feed and there is a much greater investment in the poultry units and land required to keep the birds on.

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.
