Free Range Eggs

Nothing compares to free range eggs from happy, healthy paddock raised birds.  The yolk is creamier, yellower, yummier – and from a cook’s point of view they poach better and are less likely to split.

Is there any happier site than a bunch of chickens going about their chooky business in your backyard?  Sadly, we don’t all have the luxury of raising our own – so grab some from these guys instead…

400 Acres

Elliot's chooks are paddock grazed following in the wake of an organic dairy herd in Northern Victoria

Happy Chook

Locally Grown

Kean's

These free range eggs are from Huntly - an outer suburb of Bendigo - the only way to make them more local is to raise your own chooks.
