Prayer Farm Eggs (dozen)

$9.50

 

The first food source for our hens is the pasture that grows where they live, which is in an old mango orchard at Lambell’s Lagoon. When the mango orchard was operating on a commercial basis it was certified organic but now it is just 100% natural. No chemical fertilisers or pesticides whatsoever have been used on the orchard. The orchard is sown down to two types of perennial legumes - Calopo and Cassia. We maintain colonies of insects, worms and other bugs that the chickens love to scratch for and eat. There is also a grass-only section in the open paddock.

We also grow patches of mixed greens specifically for the chooks to eat while still young. These patches may include lab-lab, millet, wheat, sorghum, mung bean, pigeon pea, comfrey and others. The pasture diet is augmented by recovered fruit and vegetable and other food waste from local food businesses and by rice grown in the Top End. We add only a small amount of supplemental food brought in from interstate.

There a small shelters in the orchard that the chooks sleep in and lay their eggs in.

All this means our pastured eggs are produced with highly sustainable farming practices and with a very low carbon footprint.
