Raised with care
The care our farmers put in to raising their flocks is absolute. Every morning they inspect the barns, taking note of the temperature profile and how much food and water has been consumed. Nothing beats walking through the shed and taking in how the birds are doing. It’s all about making sure they’re comfortable in their environment.
Space to roam outside
As the barns open for the day, the chickens are free to roam the paddocks, forage, rest and do what they please. There’s plenty of range, trees for shelter and the barn remains open if they prefer to head back inside for food, drink or away from bad weather. This is what free range means, and it’s an essential part of providing the best care. Such is the overall level of care our farmers provide that Waitoa chicken is SPCA certified for animal welfare.
