Kirkfield Family Farm's free range eggs

Yes to free range

Kirkfield Family Farm eggs Beau Kirk and his wife Johnine are maintaining farming practices that incorporate some of the simpler but effective farming systems of their forebears.

Beau is proud of his SPCA tick for their free range eggs, which he calls his “Rolls Royce badge”.

Their free range egg farm has all that is good in modern technology, but by bringing the best practices of old of allowing their hens space and freedom to express their natural habit, they produce the best eggs. “I hate caged animals. To me, here they are contained in an environment that is sustainable.”

The chickens have access to mechanically administered food and water whenever they want it and can wander around outside eating grass also. Each hen shares one square metre of indoor space with five others and each shed is sited on 1.5ha of land so the birds have plenty of space to socialize, nest, lay and feed.

Kirkfield free range eggs can be found in selected Four Square and New World stores nationwide as well as the Gisborne Pak n Save.

Look for the SPCA tick and you know you are buying well.
