$40 of $8,000 goal

We have run workshops on our farm to encourage people to set up their own free range egg farming business. We believe in very low density production, ensuring long term sustainability,with hens that range on pasture all day. We never lock our hens up - not even at night because they are protected from predators by their personal bodyguards - at least one Maremma dog per flock. Our aim is to reach far more people than we can with workshops on the farm. Development of a series of  webinars, coupled with our eBook will allow us to potentially reach hundreds of people at a time rather than just a dozen or so.

The are still many examples in Australia and around the world, including in New Zealand, the UK and US of unscrupulous egg producers ripping off consumers by claiming that eggs are free range. This is a result of there being too few genuine free range farms to meet consumer demand. We can help to fix that with our webinars encouraging more farms to be established.

Ministers foir Consumer Affairs have allowed a free range definition which permits intensive producers to label their eggs as 'free range'. They ignored the reality that free range eggs are a niche market and that low density is an integral part of the farming operation.
