Meet the farmer behind this incredible Wallace and Gromit style invention

It all began when Phil calculated over the course of his lifetime he’d spend 1825 hours – 76 days – in the kitchen perfecting tasty poached eggs.

 

That was a staggering amount of time he’d rather spend on his farm.

This is the story of one ’eggcentric’ man and his cracking invention…

"But I’m already reaping the benefit and I wanted it ready in time for the shorter winter days."

"Growing up on a farm I always had a knack for making things and my wife’s been calling me Wallace for years.

 

"As a kid I was always repairing machinery and working on tractor motors so really the cracking invention is just one of many contraptions and I’m sure it won’t be the last invention I have up my sleeve."
