Our 1 DOZEN REAL FREE RANGE EGGS are available for customers who are also purchasing one of our following packs:
Many eggs in supermarkets are labelled "free range". To meet meet industry requirements these supposedly "free range" hens are shut indoors and at best giving them token access to the outdoors, which may include a patch of grass a couple of times a year. Their ration is carefully monitored to make sure each eggs tastes the same. The life of the hen is regimented.
That isn't the kind of farming we support. And more importantly those aren't the eggs we want to eat.
We believe the most wholesome and nutritious eggs come from hens who have the freedom to roam, scratch, eat wild seeds, and exercise in the sunshine every day.
We give our hens a spacious mobile shelter designed to cater to the needs of the hen and the land. At night they rest safely on their perch together, by day they have a home base to lay, and each week we can shift them to fresh pasture. The immediate effects of this rotation-grazing are threefold:
Each egg is unique in size, taste and colour because they are produced by hens that are literally free to range to fill their dietary needs.
This order will be delivered with your GRASS FED BEEF or GRASS FED LAMB pack order.
The number of eggs available changes with the seasons. As a small business we must first serve our longstanding and loyal regular patrons; without them we would not exist. This means orders from our weekly customers are filled first. Subsequent orders are filled on a first in, first served basis.
FREE DELIVERY is available with orders over $150 to Ayr, Giru and Townsville. We will contact you when your beef has been scheduled with the butcher and arrange a delivery/collection date. If delivery dates are not suitable for you, please arrange collection from the farm.
Cancellations are not available for this product.
We do not have organic certification. Our focus is on enhancing the soil, water and biodiversity of grasses, not to simply remove the use of harsh chemicals in our farming practices. We encourage you to arrange a visit to St Margaret's Creek and ensure we meet your standards.
