Chris knows a good egg
Hi, I’m Chris Martin and I’m passionate about great food and its source.

I know a good egg when I see it. I used to be the head baker at the award-winning Ten O’clock Cookie café, and I’m now the region’s largest farmer of Free Range eggs. I guess you could say I have an unrivalled view of what it takes to make a good egg. Together with my wife Alexandra, we are extremely proud of our great business located just outside of Masterton.

Free Range eggs are so good for you – they’re not only nutritious but you can feel good about where your egg came from. We provide our hens with the best of care and our Free Range birds have access to the outdoors 24 hours a day.


Good Egg Award - 2011

Wairarapa Eggs was extremely proud to have received a ‘Good Egg Award’ in 2011, one of only 7 recipients within the Farmer/producer section. The awards, presented for the first time in NZ by the SPCA and Compassion in World Farming, recognise food industry businesses that support animal welfare. For further information please see the Compassion in World Farming and the Food News websites.

A family (ad)venture

We bought Wairarapa Eggs from Alexandra’s father in 2011. He had in turn owned the business for close to 30 years. Being a family business, we take great pride in our product and in providing fantastic customer service. We really enjoy the face to face contact so Chris tries to do the daily deliveries to keep up to date with customers’ feedback, and to make sure we are providing the best in service and product.

We’ve got three beautiful children – 2 boys and a daughter (yes, we were feeling clucky) and you guessed it, eggs one way or the other feature in family meals most days.
