Free Range Egg Farming

Free Range Egg Farming in Australia

Federal legislation under the Australian Consumer Law, defining free range egg farming was passed in 2018.

To be considered free range eggs, the laying hens must have meaningful and regular access to an outdoor range during daylight hours (for at least eight hours a day), and be free to roam and forage outside. Free range farms can have a maximum outdoor stocking density of 10,000 hens per hectare, and free range eggs must clearly state the farming density on the packaging.

Our commitment to sourcing the best free range eggs goes beyond the minimum certification requirements. We seek out passionate and committed egg farmers across Australia from regions that produce amazing growing conditions and as a result, the tastiest eggs.
