Farmer Brown’s Free Range Eggs is a family business producing free range ‘pastured’ eggs. We believe in ethical and sustainable food production.
Our eggs are produced on a 20 hectare property in the Hall region of ACT, off Wallaroo Road. The hens have free roaming access to pastures, allowing them to do what chickens love to do, such as foraging for grass and insects, and dust bathing. Our girls have plenty of space with a density well under 100 hens per hectare.
The Brown family of Hall have a long history of traditional free range egg production, being the major supplier in the Canberra region from the 1940’s to 1980’s (pre caged eggs). We are building upon those traditions by combining them with modern sustainable and humane farming techniques incorporating innovative ideas, such as the recycling of waste food, to create a more sustainable city.
