ORGANIC FREE RANGE EGGS – NATURE’S PERFECT FOOD.
Farmer Eddie is pioneering a partnership between a group of certified organic citrus farms with highest caliber of pasture and healthy laying hens. The relationship between grass, fertile organic soil and the potential it offers to give the chickens the healthiest pasture.
The expanse of the organic citrus orchards offers up an incredible grazing space in one of the most perfect environments for laying hens. Each area is fenced off to provide 1500 m2 of safe free range pasture to only 300 chickens. The night-time roosting caravans are opened in the morning to give the chickens unlimited access to lush green grazing under the shade of organic citrus trees.
ABOUT FARMER EDDIE
Eddie and Johnny Ferreira are brothers who through a series of health and life challenges developed a passion for healthy living through healthy food. After the pain of losing their sister to a cancer rather swiftly, the urge to farm healthier food divorced from the chemical reality of modern agriculture developed, and the courage of following heart and belief no matter the cost.
Eddie warmly describes the flood of relief when he got his first certificate back that confirmed the feed to be entirely non-GM, always a nerve racking time for a committed farmer as GMO’s contaminate so much of life, a source of great misery and turmoil for the organic hearts and souls amongst us. It isn’t easy to get a 100% pass on non-GM input and for this reason it is the ulimate confirmation that your feed sourcing was successful. This is a very proud moment for organic farmers like Eddie who put so much into making sure that their eggs are ready for organic certification.
