JOYCE’S GOLD HERITAGE POULTRY
Heritage breed. Pasture raised. Local. Farm Direct.
The Joyce’s Gold Heritage Poultry chicken is a breed developed in Australia by the Joyce family using traditional heritage breeds.
Joyce’s Gold chickens are raised naturally on pasture. They’re grown out to 12-16 weeks, unlike most meat chickens that grow out to 5 – 6 weeks.
Joyce’s Gold Heritage Meat Chickens are truly suited to FREE RANGE conditions and Australia’s often extreme climate. They are quite happy in the hot or cold, sleeping on the ground, on perches or even in trees. Regular commercial meat chicks become very big in the breast area at an amazing rate and their legs struggle to support their own weight meaning even the lucky ones on free range spend most of the time sitting and usually only getting up to eat mash or have a drink. The Joyce`s Gold birds however develop all parts of their body at the same rate allowing for natural chicken movement and behaviour.
With a longer growing period and real free ranging ability, you get a table bird that tastes like chicken used to taste. Customers often say they have not had birds with this amount of flavour in many years and only tasted birds like this in Europe.
Pastured. Free range.
Maremma Free Range ducks are raised completely free range and chemical free in Taralga, NSW by Tathra Place Free Range. These birds are Australia’s ONLY true free range Aylesbury Pekin ducks. The ducks roam free in flocks with Maremma dogs to protect them from any predator in the sky or on the ground as part of a highly rotational land healing regenerative agricultural system.
The birds eat a non GMO grain supplement that completes a diet of grasses, bugs, worms and anything else they can find. The completely natural way the ducks are raised results in an intense flavour complexity in the meat, a deeper and richer texture and a thicker layer of fat coverage.
They have access to water from the Wombeyan Caves aquifer which is very pure drinking water. Our ducks also have access to something we have developed called a dunk tank which gives them access to clean water for bathing and good beak health which is imperative for the health of water fowl.
With plenty of natural pasture, zero chemicals and zero hormones, these ducks are true pasture and ethically raised ducks.
Raised in Taralga, NSW and protected by the ever-watchful Maremma dogs.
