I started my NASAA certified organic truly free range egg business in 2002 when I was eight years old as a home schooling project.

Now with a young family of my own it is my full time job and ongoing passion.
Unlike conventional free range practices, I raise my chickens from 24 hours of age, in the orchard of my families 440 acre organic farm, Hollyburton.
As the chicks grow they are moved onto grassy paddocks in a sustainable rotational system with the farms cattle. The chickens are protected by a pack of large fluffy white Maremma dogs.
All my chickens lay their eggs in insulated chook-mobiles which I designed and built with my father. Chook- mobiles are moved to fresh pasture every second day, fertilising the paddock and keeping them green for the ladies. 
With insulated roof, wooden perches, natural nesting materials and a misting sprinkler system for hot days in summer, the chook-mobiles keep the girls cheerful in any season. 
From day one they are fed certified organic feed, unlike a lot of  free-range birds that are raised on conventional feed, antibiotics and caged till they are 15 weeks of age. Organic fed is very expensive @ $1500/tonne compared to conventional feed that is $700/tonne.
I have a maximum stocking rate of 250 per hectare which is 2.5% of the national free range standard 10,000 per hectare. 
As a result my ladies have an abundance of grass, wild plants, leafy green and bugs to forage, giving a delicious eggs with bright yolks.
