Raising Chickens the Freedom Way
What came first… the chicken or the egg? Well actually it was our bacon… but if you think like we do in our house… you want to make sure that when you buy any ingredient from a farm… you want to be sure the animals have been farmed the right way.
We’re chuffed to have added chicken to our range… from chooks raised the Freedom way… with gardens to play in. Turns out the chickens like this idea too.
Our plan is to be able to offer heaps more chicken-y treats that you can be sure are farmed the right way.
FREE RANGE CHICKEN
To make great chicken meals isn’t real hard.
First you have to start with happy chooks… and be sure they’re farmed here in NZ the Freedom way… on farms that let the chooks outside to peck about in the garden.
Then it’s about flavour and texture.
We reckon a diet of grains… and all the bugs and worms they can forage… goes a long way.
And then its up to you to pick a great recipe… something delicious please… you get the idea.
WHAT DO THE CHOOKS GET FED?
There’s lots of ideas about what chickens should eat… corn… grain… ground up fish heads.
We reckon it’s simple… Freedom Farms chickens get a top notch grain-based diet… supplemented by all the goodness they can forage… bugs and worms and grass mostly.
Pecking about is natural behaviour for chickens – so it just makes sense they’re free to do it… in grassy gardens with trees and bushes to shelter under!
