About Ewing Poultry

chicken-1
Ewing Poultry is a family owned and operated farm that has focused on producing quality eggs for thirty-five years. In 1981, Lloyd and Gwen, with their three young children, moved from North Otago where they were farming sheep and cattle, to their poultry farm in Nelson. At this time the farm was an older style mid-sized farm and Lloyd and Gwen operated their business with the help of one full time and one part time staff.

Back in the ‘80’s the poultry industry was heavily regulated with the requirement to own entitlement numbers and this limited how many hens we could farm. In the late ‘80’s the poultry industry was deregulated which meant restrictions were lifted and we could farm as many hens as we wanted and no longer needed to sell our eggs through a marketing board. This was a huge change in the industry and we were now responsible for the sale of our eggs direct to the markets.
