About feather & PECK
Carrying less than 75 hens per hectare, feather & PECK pastured free range eggs come from small, low density farms on the FLEURIEU PENINSULA in South Australia. Our happy hens roam free, spending more than 80% of their day outside. At night, they roost in mobile trailers, protected from predators by Maremma dogs. Every week, we rotate our hens to new fresh pasture where they also enjoy locally grown GMO-free, soy-free feed.
We produce eggs with impact. Our pastured free-range eggs are exceptional. Our customers tell us that they taste amazing and cook well. The way we farm regenerates family farms and creates local employment. We donate a percentage of eggs to sporting clubs for their game day BBQs and give any excess eggs to food relief organisations such as Foodbank and OzHarvest.
If you are interested in becoming a feather & PECK farmer partner, contact us. Together we are making a positive impact on the environment, animal welfare, local employment, social enterprises and egg quality.
What does pastured free range mean?
As sure as eggs
A feather & PECK egg is not just a ‘feel good’ egg. Studies have shown that pastured eggs are higher in Vitamins A & E and Omega 3s than ‘confined hens’ (in cages or large barns).*
Our customers say that the eggshell quality is noticeably harder, the egg and yolk separate well and the eggs have a great consistency. They’re happy to eat ethical eggs that come from happy hens.
