New egg stamp to highlight “Pastured Eggs”

We feel passionate about our eggs and think they are exquisite to taste. So much so we have had a new egg stamp made which highlights that our eggs are “Pastured”. Many consumers feel that the term “free range” has been degraded under the new guidelines of 10,000 hens per hectare and we could not agree more. To that end our eggs are stamped using our PIRSA code SA113 as well as the words “PASTURED EGGS” so our customers can be assured that our eggs are uniquely different and dare we say better than so called free range eggs. Once you have tried Adelaide Hills Pastured Eggs you will taste the difference. Fresh, nutrient dense eggs straight from our farm to your plate. Choose the best, choose Adelaide Hills Pastured Eggs, its nutrition by nature.

    1. HI Neil, to us a pastured egg is one in which the chicken has unrestricted access to pasture 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. We use a hen house that looks like a movable caravan with built in perches and an Italian made/designed nesting boxes for them to lay their eggs. The fact that we move our chickens onto new fresh pasture means that our pastures regenerate and get a boost from the fertiliser the chickens leave behind. Our stocking density is a very low 30 hens per hectare and with our rotation of our chickens across our farm means that the birds will not be on the same patch for up to 12 months which is truly a sustainable approach to farming. Our farm is approximately 80 acres (32 Hectares) and re have sown an incredible diverse range of grasses, legumes and herbs. The land is not over used or degraded and in fact flourishes under this style of management. So pastured eggs are significantly different to the new free range guidelines.
