LIV­ING the FREE RANGE LIFE

Fresh air, sun­shine, and good food. These are just some of the things you’ll find on a Tegel free range farm.

Food - - Know How -

Free range chicken is be­com­ing more pop­u­lar with Ki­wis, and if you take a look at a Tegel free range farm, it’s easy to see why.

We’re proud of the care we put into the health and well-be­ing of ev­ery one of our chick­ens. Our free range chooks spend the first few weeks of their lives in­side a large tem­per­a­ture con­trolled barn with the right amount of warmth, hu­mid­ity, feed and wa­ter. Here they’re pro­tected from the cold, the weather and any roam­ing preda­tors. Once fully feath­ered, the barn doors are open dur­ing the day, and the birds are free to ven­ture out­side.

On the farm, the chick­ens are free to roam, for­age, bathe in the dust, or sim­ply shel­ter un­der a tree or bush. When night comes around, they head back to the barn for warmth, shel­ter, and to help them­selves to food and fresh wa­ter.

Their diet is nu­tri­tious and bal­anced, made up of grains, corn, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als put to­gether by Tegel’s ex­pert nu­tri­tion­ists. It’s a pretty good life be­ing a chook!

Tegel takes its com­mit­ment to free range farm­ing very se­ri­ously, and have in­de­pen­dent au­di­tors who check up on the farms to ensure they meet or ex­ceed the high­est stan­dards of an­i­mal wel­fare.

This com­mit­ment all means the chick­ens are happy and healthy. They get to eat good food and en­joy lots of fresh air in the most beau­ti­ful coun­try in the world. Sounds good to us.
