FUN Organics has 2000 happy hens roaming on the river flats producing certified organic (ACO) pasture ranged eggs, branded under Oxhill Organics.
Our hens are housed in movable sheds (‘chicken caravans’), and are moved to new pasture every three days, a point of difference between our eggs and most free range operations (a lot of free range chickens are housed in permanent sheds which means that although they have access to ‘free range’, they are on the one paddock all year). This allows maximum intake of fresh organic grass. This is also great for the pasture as it gets a great dose of chicken manure. This system of farming also helps grow more nutritious grass. The hens are protected from predation by movable electric fences and by alpacas.
Our hens are not debeaked to enable them to forage and behave 100% naturally. They feed on a diverse range of organic pastures and freshly cracked organic grain. As well as this, they also receive a fresh porridge mix every morning, consisting of the freshly cracked organic grain, mixed with the organic milk that comes from our dairy.
