29 Jun Our Happy Chickens
As a farm, our goal is simple. We want to cut out the middle man, and sell direct to our visitors. Why? Because we are agriculturally-driven farmers, and believe that we should be able to supply our restaurant, deli and customers with as much paddock to plate options as possible. After all, we have all the resources right on our doorstep, and want to be involved in every part of the process. Starting with our chickens.
Not too long ago, we wanted to provide the Goatshed Restaurant with farm-fresh eggs for their breakfasts. So we brought some chickens. And our first priority was to ensure they live a great life, just like all our other animals here on the farm. After all, happy chickens make high-quality eggs. So we’ve given our flock a large space to roam freely – they can happily graze on the grass outside, or come inside the barn for snacks. This is a far cry from the life of a battery hen. We ensure our hens have plenty of space, and at the moment, they’ve taken to digging little holes in the ground where they rest by day, soaking up the winter sun. Just opposite the chickens, our herd of sheep graze, with our goats and resident ostrich a stone’s throw away for good company.
We love our chickens. We love our goats. We love all our animals. And we hope that that love comes through.
Our eggs are available in the Tasting Room for R15 for 6. Free-range. 100% organic. 100% happy chicken.
