Meet the ladies – our gorgeous girls who pay their rent by producing delicious, nutrient rich eggs.
Our mobile coop, built on a caravan chassis, is moved every couple of days. Inside is space for the hens to roost and nesting boxes for laying eggs. The hens have a great time making new dust baths after every move and foraging for the freshest bugs. At the same time, their manure fertilises the grass and builds up our soil and grass quality. The floor of the egg mobile is made of mesh so all of the night-time droppings fall straight through onto the grass too, keeping the coop clean and fresh.
Their diet is made up of grass, bugs, seeds, organic waste from vegetable harvest and kitchen scraps. This is supplemented by a hormone and medication free feed.
Our hens are kept under the watchful eye of a single rooster per flock, and geese, to deter predators.
Raising hens on pasture is the most natural, but most expensive approach. By providing the most natural living conditions for the hens, the result is a much healthier egg – higher in vitamins and Omega 3.
Chickens are the vehicle of regenerative farming – essential for sanitising land and building soil quality.
And because they live the life that a chicken should, sometimes they surprise us with a little more than we expected;)
