MOUNTAINBROOK FARM FRESH EGGS
OUR HENS ARE TOTALLY FREE TO ROAM
No chicken fencing! They are free to roam pastured paddocks where they can eat grass and scratch through manure. They love the bushlands where they can dirt bath and scratch through leaf litter. They can also wander to the shade by the creek which they particularly enjoy doing on a hot day.
NESTING BOXES OF NATURAL STRAW
No Plastic mats! Our hens have natural comfy straw to lay their eggs, It’s natural behaviour for hens to ‘nest’ and they will pick up and place bits of straw to shape a perfect spot to lay. The straw is changed often so we always get lovely clean eggs.
ROOSTS OF NATURAL BRANCHES
No cold square steel roosts! At night they like to sleep on roosts and our chicken house has natural tree branches, unlike big commercial farms or most chook tractors that have metal and sometimes square lengths. The tree branches are comfortable with natural unevenness which is beneficial for their feet.
OLD FASHIONED SPOILING
Because we are such a small family farm, our hens are often spoilt with high quality feed; scraps from the veggie garden, home grown sprouted seeds and in the summer treats of frozen fruit. And of course, the occasional cuddle.
OUR EGGS ARE HAND GATHERED
No big power-hungry machines! No sitting in storage waiting to be graded and packaged! At least twice a day, and much more in the summer, we hand pick the eggs so they are never too long in unsuitable temperatures. We assess/grade, stamp, package and put eggs into refrigeration straight away for longer lasting freshness.
FRESHEST FARM EGGS DIRECT TO YOU
No sitting on supermarket shelves! We deliver the freshest of eggs direct to you. Eggs that have been just laid that same morning or the day before.
THEY RUN ON THEIR OWN BODY CLOCK
Not locked in! As soon as they wake in the morning they can exit the chook house. They can come and go as often as they want to, but usually only to lay their eggs and they are off again roaming. Once nightfall approaches they wander back on their own to their house to roost.
WE DON’T WET WASH OUR EGGS
No chemical’s used! Egg shells are porous and wet-washing can allow microorganisms to enter through the pores of the shell. You only get the naturally cleanest of eggs.
WE ARE ECO CONSCIOUS
No plastic labels or packaging! All of our egg packaging is made from recycled materials, are biodegradable and recyclable. We will also reuse our cartons if you would like to return them and help reduce your carbon footprint.
Our farm and home are totally reliant on solar power and we are big on environmental sustainability. A small part of this is that we recycle our used chicken feed bags to make reusable shopping bags.
