Why we are more than just 'free range'

What’s the Yolking Difference?

Rotationally Moved 
Our hens are rotationally moved across the landscape on our farm using portable chicken coops (also known as chicken caravans or tractors). This has many benefits for hen health, environment and the end product of our pasture raised eggs. The hens have significantly increased foraging opportunities than that of a convention ‘free range’ hen. With frequent access to new ground there is a treasure trove of insects, bugs and other goodies to be discovered by the ladies. A key component of why we use a rotational based system is to provide our pastures with ‘rest’. Not only does this allow time for the grass, small herbs to recover fully, it also provides a mosaic or patchwork affect across our farm which is vital for ecosystem function and local biodiversity. 
Egg quality and Flavour
 It is well documented that pasture raised eggs are highly nutritious, significantly more than a hen which is locked up inside a shed or limited access to quality forage.  One of the key reasons is our hens spend a greater amount of time out in natural sunlight and on fresh green pastures which they consume. Our eggs have a greater amount of Vitamin D, imparted into the egg at a rate of about 3x to 4x more! Our eggs are also higher in Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, Omega-3s… PLUS Lower in Cholesterol and Saturated fat! All of these extra nutrients have a strong correlation with flavour (think of homegrown vegetables compared to supermarket varieties)
Stocking Density 
 Our stocking density is less than 85 hen/hectare, much less than the ‘free range’ approved stocking density of 10,000/hectare or the RSPCA standards of 1,500/ha. 
Why does this matter?  Well this directly relates to significantly reduced stress on each hen, as there is less competition for food, shelter, and perching spaces. Not to mention the build-up of manure which has been proven to taint the flavour of eggs with the high ammonia gases released when it anaerobically decomposes or ‘rots’. So it is true what they say; you can taste the happiness of the hen in the egg. 

Environmentally, Sustainability & Ethically Focused 
Our management techniques are improving our local environment on a day-to-day basis. We are fully chemical free in the way we produce our eggs, which means you are receiving a highly natural egg. Produced as nature intended. It is our belief that happy hens will produce the best product for our customers, we like to think of our production system as ‘HenCentric’ or having a holistic approach to producing eggs on an ethical, environmentally regenerating and sustainable scale.
