Why our Chicken:

Raised humanely.
Our chickens are truly free range. Unlike commercial chicken they are not kept indoors in environmentally controlled houses throughout the duration of their lives. After hatching, we keep them indoors for about two weeks – as in nature, they need protection as chicks and they usually spend this time under their mother’s wing.
Stress free.
A humanely treated chicken is a stress-free chicken. Commercial chickens, on the other hand, are raised in severely cramped quarters where they can hardly move. This leads to stress which can lead to disease, which in turn results in the need for extensive use of antibiotics.
Fish meal and animal by-product free.
In addition to being able to forage naturally while they roam outside, our chickens are only fed high quality, all-grain food which boosts their immune systems. No forms of poultry meal (blood, feathers and dead birds) or fish meal are ever permitted in their dietary intake.

Quality standards:

01.

Air chilled

To ensure end-product safety, our chickens are air chilled to reach a temperature where microbial growth is minimized.

02.

Never fed routine antibiotics

Humans were never intended to process the infinite list of chemicals presently found in the food chain and in medicines. To state that antibiotic and growth-enhancing chemical intervention in livestock is perfectly harmless in humans, is misleading and irresponsible.

03.

Antibiotic growth-promoter free

We do not administer AGPs to our chickens. In commercial chickens, AGPs are routinely administered to control micro-organisms in the intestines which in turn results in an unnatural growth rate.

Our birds are then given the opportunity to experience the outdoors, and are allowed to move around unfettered between the protective shelters and the outdoors. They have constant access to a natural diet, enjoy plenty of fresh air and sunshine, and they naturally migrate back to their shelters at night.

In the event of the rare occurrence of disease, medication is administered under strict supervision by our consulting veterinarian to prevent any suffering amongst diseased birds.
