About Pastured Chicken
These are pastured chickens, does that mean they are not fed any grain?
Chickens are monogastric creatures and enjoy a nutritionally complete and balanced diet of high quality grains, vitamins and minerals in addition to the grasses and insects they forage for.
Is their feed organic?
We do not subscribe to the organic label for a few reasons, which you can read more about in our journal, but we are hoping to work with regenerative grain growers in the near future. Their feed is custom milled, high quality and hormone-free.
Where are the chickens processed?
Right here on the farm! We process our chickens in our own very unique mechanised mobile abattoir. Our chickens don't have to be transported, which contributes to the highest of animal welfare standards. Our facility is NSW Food Authority approved.
How much space do they have to roam?
We go beyond the recommendations of industry bodies such as the RSPCA with regards to stocking density to also provide mobile housing for our chickens. This means fresh grass once to twice daily for the cleanest and healthiest conditions.
Is my order safe to be delivered when I am not home?
Are the chickens fresh or frozen?
1. Convenience for you. We don't expect customers to devour 4 fresh chickens within their used by date (though we wouldn't judge you if you did!) So we freeze them right away for ultimate freshness and safe delivery, vacuum packed so that you don't have to think about it. Just defrost what you want right away and pop the rest in the freezer.
2. As we're only processing once a month whilst we get back into the swing of things after the Black Summer bushfires, freezing chickens allows us more flexibility during this time as we rebuild our farm the remainder of the month.
