Freeranger Eggs operates as a traditional mixed farm with sheep and cattle as well as free range hens.
Our chickens are kept in small flocks of 200 – 300 birds with separate paddocks, mobile roosting sheds and laying boxes filled with wood shavings. None of our processes is automated.
Eggs are collected by hand several times each day and taken to the grading room where they are candled and graded for size before beinng packed in cartons or on trays ready for delivery.
They are usually in the cool room within an hour or so of being laid to guarantee top quality. Our production, grading, packing and storage process are detailed in our HACCP-based Food Safety and Quality Assurance Program.
All this will be demonstrated on the day during this hands-on workshop at a cost of $40.
