Free-range hens have their own natural rhythm

Klaus Jørgensen has 48,000 free range hens on his farm between Esbjerg and Holsted. Him and his wife Betina have built it all from scratch and enjoy the natural behavior of the hens. They started with an open field and built it all up from there. The result was Boldinggaard Hønseri.

Listen to the hens

- One of the special things about working with free-range hens is that they have a daily and natural rhythm. That's one of the things I like about working with free range hens and free range eggs, says Klaus.

In addition to working on the farm, Klaus greatly appreciates time with his family. He has coordinated his work tasks so that there is room for holidays with the family - and to his utmost interest: Old vintage cars, which he, among other things, uses for wedding driving.

Getting up with the hens

Klaus lives on the farm with his wife and three daughters. And he is a morning person who likes to get things done early so he has time to enjoy the rest of the day. He starts the work day at 05:00 where he takes a walk among the hens. His wife arrives at 05:30, and then they pack eggs until around 8:00. Klaus then goes on with the other tasks of the farm.

He is back at the barn again at 3:30 p.m, where Klaus spends approximately an hour doing various extra tasks. It's a time of day he really appreciates - and where he really enjoys himself.
