Better than free range.

The most naturally raised eggs

Free to roam outside in our pastures, our hens enjoy the fresh air, exercise, and sunshine. And there is no better egg then those from a hen living in her natural environment.

After a day of roaming free in the paddocks our hens return to their mobile hen houses to roost safely. These mobile hen houses have a mesh floor that allows the hens dropping to fall through and they are moved around the farm regularly. 

Our girls live happily together with our Mareema, Mack, protector of our flock. Our Mareema Sheepdog is an important part of our operation protecting our hens from any predators. Stocked at 100 hens to the hectare with no antibiotics and no hormones, our girls are happy hens producing delicious, nutritious pastured eggs.

“free to roam in the sunshine"

Stocked at 100 hens to the hectare with no antibiotics and no hormones, our girls are happy hens producing delicious and nutritious pastured free-range eggs.

Grass, grubs & worms

Our hens have the opportunity to eat as much fresh pasture as they choose. This unlimited access to grass ensures they can obtain all the nutrients provided in our herb-rich grasslands and pecking for grubs and worms keeps the pastures healthy.

However grass alone can’t provide our chickens with the protein or calcium needed in a balanced diet for poultry, so we give them additional grain which provides them with a nutritionally complete and balanced diet. The grain tops them up with all the extras that they might otherwise not get.

Why Pastured Eggs?

Taste & Nutrition

Our eggs are nutritionally dense, having twice the Vitamin E and beneficial Omega 3 fatty acids than conventional eggs. Your body will appreciate the true nutritional value of an egg from a hen having lived in her natural environment

Better than free-range

Our pasture-raised hens have 100 square meters EACH to forage grassy pastures all day, most free range birds have only 1 square meter each with access to outdoors but no guaranteed daily time outside. Pastured eggs are the most naturally raised eggs available.

Sustainable

Our regenerative approach to farming sees the animals regularly rotated through paddocks ensuring they have constant natural grass forage.

“can you make sense of egg labels?”

There is a lot of confusion when it comes to egg labels and it turns out 'free-range' and cage-free' don't mean what we think they do. It's important to know your eggs. It turns out pasture-raised eggs are the most naturally raised eggs available.

Mack, protector of our flock

Our hens live happily together with our Maremma, Mack, the protector of our flock. Maremma Sheepdogs are a breed from Italy who guard poultry and fend off any attackers. They are an important part of our operation protecting our hens from any predators and keeping the hens happy.
