Happylands is in Hertfordshire and is owned by the Belson family. We bought it in 2002 as a home for our 3 horses and the property came with a mixed flock of laying hens which we've since expanded. Our horses are Cracker, Donny and Simba and we enjoy riding out in the countryside whenever we get the time. We have a lovely 10 acre hay meadow which we use to grow hay for our horses. The field is full of beautiful wildflowers and butterflies. We also have our own honey produced on site and organic vegetables
We have about 50 hens, mostly White Leghorns which are the ones that lay the white eggs. We also have some Rhode Island Red hens which are mostly the result of school hatching projects. They lay large traditional brown eggs. The brown hens tend to be more friendly than the white hybrid types. The Leghorns are good layers and at their peak will lay 6 eggs a week! As they get older they lay less but their eggs are larger. Commercial flocks are "recycled" every year or so but as we hang on to our girls we get bigger eggs!
New for 2019, Happylands is available to hire as venue for parties. Perfect setting for weddings, barmitzvahs or whatever event you require, both formal or informal. We can help you achieve the event of your dreams and can assist you with a beautiful marquee, seating, caterers, table settings and even a rodeo bull!
