  1. Emma doran

    Really friendly staff and service. Great chicken catching ability!! Really pleased with our four new hens 1xlohman brown and 3xbovans nera. Friendly sociable birds that have settled well into my small flock and already started producing. Would highly recommend moon ridge farm. Thanks guys! 🙂

  2. Mary Anne

    Delighted with the two Bovans Nera and one Speckled Leghorn purchased three weeks ago. One of the B Nera has started laying (in November!) so truly point of lay. They settled in really quickly and are charming, inquisitive and confident little characters. I was very impressed with the high standards kept at Moonridge and you will certainly see you again.

  3. happy customer

    Fantastic farm , great staff , great shop, brilliant advice , took the time to offer us the choice on our choice of poultry. We have visited so many local ‘poultry business’ but none come close to the professional set up here at Moon Ridge .

  4. Julia Mitchell

    Cluck and Collect service was excellent, without any hitches. The boxes were perfect for travelling home with. The description was spot on so far, the Bovans Nera hen was first out to make friends with our family with children aged 2, 5 & 8, she is confident and inquisitive. These are our first hens, just settling them in and waiting for first eggs!
