Topi Farm meat chickens are raised outside on pasture at Topi Farm at Bungwahl near Seal Rocks on the temperate mid-north NSW coast - just down the road from Burraduc Buffalo farm. The chickens are kept in the brooder for two to three weeks until they're sufficiently feathered to cope with the weather, after which they are moved outside to range freely on pasture. They're constantly moved onto fresh pasture so they always have clean, green pick and are protected by mobile electric fencing. Along with grass and grubs, they chickens are fed certified organic grain.
Every effort is made to work in harmony with nature with minimal inputs and intervention. No synthetic props such as non-natural growth promotants, pesticides or herbicides are used and stocking densities and rotational strategies are used to maximise fertility and sustainability.
While Topi Farm is managed according to organic principles and the chickens are fed certified organic grain, the farm isn't certified with any of the official certifying bodies so we don't advertise Topi chickens as 'organic'.
