Red Barn Free Range Farm Images
Red Barn Farm – what is free range?
Free-Range, Pasture Fed, organic, humanely grown, grain fed (beware grain fed is probably a battery caged chicken). These are just some of the terms used by farmers to sell their chickens.
What is best for you? Organic Chicken would obviously best – but hugely expensive due to a lack of organic grain supplies. As far as I know there is no organically certified chicken in South Africa!
Free Range often means they live in a chicken house. They are on the floor and not in cages and are allowed to go outside into the sunshine for a little each day.
Pasture Fed means they are free to feed naturally. They do get grain but they also roam on pasture.
Grain fed can mean anything! They eat grain which can be natural or in a pre-made feed, so it means nothing really.
Our chickens are not certified organic, but they are completely free to roam on pasture. (Pasture fed chicken) They definitely eat whole grains, goggo’s and seeds, just like chickens should!
At least you KNOW that the food you are eating from Red Barn Farm is grown humanely and with care!
Enjoy our pictures!
