Egg-cellent plan for winter

We couldn’t publish an article about High Bellochantuy Farm’s ‘egg-cellent’ idea to ensure Kintyre remains stocked up with eggs throughout the winter without throwing in a few ‘corn-y’ puns.

Seriously, though, this is a great idea, sourcing eggs similar to their own in terms of quality from similar Scottish farms to ensure people in Kintyre have access to healthy eggs all year round.

Eggs are nutritious and a fantastic source of high-quality protein. According to the NHS, they are a source of vitamins D, A, B2, B12 and folate and iodine and are ‘a good choice’ as part of a healthy, balanced diet, with no recommended limit on how many eggs people should eat.

Any initiative which helps increase our chances of remaining healthy over winter, during which illnesses like the cold and flu are more common, should be applauded.

This is particularly important this year, during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

It’s also great to see the expansion of a local business at what is a difficult time for many, giving us some hope for Kintyre’s economy.

Hannah and Will Jones are not only helping their own business thrive but are supporting local stores by encouraging people to shop locally and the community as a whole by maintaining the supply of healthy eggs.
