Meet farmer’s Melika and Josh from the @fenshams_sa, all the way out in Heidelberg! 🚜
Founded out of a desire to bring truly pasture raised chicken and eggs to health-&-earth conscious households all across the Cape, this couple is 100% committed to growing their chickens the old-fashioned peck-about-in-the-grass kinda way 🐓
Melika comments: “Before we started farming Pasture Raised Chicken, we thought ‘Free Range’ was the gold standard for producing happy and healthy chicken. We thought that chickens raised in free range systems guaranteed that the chickens had spent their lives roaming freely outside, foraging in fresh grass and generally living a life that followed their natural rhythm – eating what they wanted, having plenty of space to move around and sleeping when they wanted to. We were shocked to discover that this is simply not the case.”
Not only do Fensham’s chickens get moved to a new piece of fresh pasture everyday, but they are also fed with entirely non-GMO feed, are free from antibiotics, growth hormones, and antimicrobials, and are proven to have LOADS more nutritional value than commercial and free range poultry (one researcher even quoted that pasture raised eggs have 6 – 8 times more vitamin D!) 😍
From the Fensham’s family to yours, their produce is available in-store @allthingsearthlysa!
