Pastured definition: All animals are born and raised outdoors with continuous and unconfined access to pasture throughout their life time. They are kept at a stocking intensity that will ensure forage is always available in a sustainably managed rotational grazing system.*
We promote PASTURED as the true measure of ethical and sustainable food production. Raising pigs and chickens on pasture is nothing new, it has been practiced for centuries and it wasn't until around the 1950's that intensive, housed production systems were born. Pastured pork and egg farming is a little old fashioned really but that's just the way we like it and given the rise in demand for free range pork, eggs and chicken, so does the consumer!
This site is dedicated to true, outdoor pastured production but we believe very strongly in transparency about farming practices and welcome anyone interested in pig farming or how eggs and poultry are produced. Whether you are seeking information on how pigs are raised or farming your own pigs, producing pastured eggs or chicken, you will find the help you need right here. This site isn't just for Aussie pig farmers either, no matter where you are in the world you will find our site informative.
*with the exception of very young poultry that are not yet sufficiently feathered and poultry that must be protected from predation at night.
