We have 300 chickens leading a happy, natural and free-range life. 

Our chickens enjoy rotational grazing in four fields, which are managed with biodynamic and permaculture principles. These forage fields are planted up specifically for their culinary and medicinal needs.

The chickens are moved on to a new field as soon as soil analysis indicates that the current one needs rejuvenation. Then the old field is quickly replanted and given a chance to recover from the chicken’s destructive ‘gardening’ methods.

Our chickens are fed grain, whey, cheese and kitchen scraps daily.
