The company produce brands including Cage Free, Big and Scottish, Glenrath Eggs and Kitty Campbell’s Free Range Eggs.

 

Councillors turned down the proposals by Glenrath Farms at Easter Happrew near Peebles last year.

Glenrath farms was established in 1959 by Sir John Campbell and his wife, Cathy, in Peebleshire. He was knighted in last year’s New Years’ Honours for services to farming and charitable service to entrepreneurship.
