Our entire philosophy revolves around 360 degree ethical farming. This begins with where we procure our pullets from, to finding them suitable homes for 'retirement'; the standard of mobile chicken coops we use, to the ratio of free ranging hens per hectare; the recycled egg cartons that are made in Australia, to recycled package labels.
Animal welfare and sustainability is at the heart of all the decisions we make.
A DAY IN THE [GOOD] LIFE OF OUR HAPPY HENS
Our happy little ladies lead an idyllic country life, roaming wild from sunrise to sunset....
And to ensure there is plenty of room for activities at 'The Good Life Chook Day Spa', we keep our ratio of chickens to just 300 per hectare, which is exceptional by industry free range standards.
THE GOOD LIFE CHOOK ROUTINE
Our healthy hens pass their daylight hours foraging grassy pastures under the shade of gum trees, then toddle home to roost for the night inside comfortable mobile 'chook caravans'.
These five star chook caravans are moved regularly around the farm, providing fresh land to grub around in. This technique is also part of our regenerative farming method, ensuring all the paddocks receive an equal portion of chicken love, with nutrient-rich chook poo adding natural goodness back into the soil.
We chose our chook caravans based on the high standard of welfare conditions they offer chickens. Not all chook caravans meet these 'five star' levels. Our caravans ensure maximum comfort for roosting hens, so they have plenty of room to wriggle their fluffy bottoms, flap their wings, snooze peacefully and lay eggs joyfully.
THE GOOD LIFE CHOOK DIET
Our chickens eat naturally foraged food supplemented by a healthy diet of grains. We do not use hormones, and do cool things like feed our chooks apple cider vinegar, garlic and probiotics to boost their immune systems. We can testify to the taste of our eggs, and welcome you to share your Good Life Egg Love on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram @thegoodlifefarmco
