Our happy hens are integrated into our whole farm system with sheep and cattle depending on the season. They roost and lay their eggs in portable sheds which are moved onto fresh pasture once a week. The hens are free to roam the paddock allowing them unlimited access to fresh grass, bugs and grubs. We also provide the hens with a commercial pellet to ensure all their nutritional requirements are met. The feed provided is soy and GM grain free.
The hens reward us with a premium quality free range egg. We have 8 Maremma dogs that live with the hens to protect them from predators such as foxes and eagles.
NO artificial fertilisers or chemicals are used on the property.
In 2017 we have been accredited by PROOF – pasture raised on open fields.
