We live on our farm,
taking great pride in our
animals and land.


The girls of Eggcettera will fertilise each paddock as they rotate, putting nutrients into the land and thus fertilising the land naturally rather than the high input, high cost of using artificial fertilisers as used in conventional farming practices.

Tim Somes

Tim was born and bred in the country and has worked in agriculture for his whole career. His passion for the ethical treatment of animals and the land led to him founding Eggcettera on his family farm. From humble beginnings of a small flock of chooks laying eggs, Tim is know a certified professional belly scratcher of our pigs, lambs, cattle, goats, chooks, ducks, alpaca, dogs and cats!

Nick Proud

Nick grew up in the city and has a finance background. Working with Tim he got a glimpse into the agricultural production world, and with a passion for good produce became an advocate for raising animals in the best way to get the best product. He brings a commercial perspective to the farm, as well as coaching Tim in the latest animal belly scratching techniques from all around the world!
