Truly Free Range Chicken

**CHICKEN CURRENTLY COMES FROM EIKELAAN FARM**

Some of our chicken & duck and eggs come from Feed Me Free Range, a truly free range poultry farm situated in Sir Lowry’s Pass. Behind them sits the Hottentot Mountain range and they’re overlooking False Bay. All their chickens and ducks are completely free to roam around the 16 hectare farm, pasture fed naturally with no added growth hormones or antibiotics. They pride themselves on making sure their birds have the best possible life, resulting in amazingly tasty produce. Not only the meat but the eggs too. The chickens are known for their rather large size, some as big as 4kg! There is no wastage in their processing, every bit of the bird is used. From whole birds, portioned, boned rolled stuffed, espetadas, livers, duck fat, liver pates and doggie treats (their dogs love them!)

Farmer Angus provides us with chicken and eggs from his farm at Spier. Biodynamic and regenerative agricultural principles and practices are applied in the raising all of the farm’s animals which includes cattle, pigs, broiler chickens and laying hens, as well as vegetables and wine. Situated on 126 hectares of irrigated pasture, the cattle are moved 4 times per day. The broilers and layers every day and the pigs once they have completely trashed an area which takes about 5 days. This ensures that the farm is neither overgrazed or overfertilised. Whether the conventional farming operation is caged or so called “free range” the housing is fixed and so the animals are under constant disease pressure as they live with their manure.
