The Lilydale Promise
Farmed With Care

At Lilydale we’re committed to farming free range chickens and producing the best quality product.

Access to outdoors

Lilydale free range chickens, once adequately feathered, normally around 21 days, have the ability to leave their barns and access fenced outdoor range areas, during daylight hours.

The outdoor range areas are equipped with shade huts, hay bales and perches.

Whilst many chickens are content with the comforts of a barn, during an average day, a proportion of the chickens will venture outside and return to the barn at their leisure.

Various conditions, including weather, can affect if or how many chickens choose to access the range areas and how long they stay outside.

Nutritious Feed

Lilydale Free Range Chickens are raised and tended to by farmers who take pride in their welfare and ensure that they are fed a nutritious, vitamin enriched diet, including seeds, grains, peas and canola and they’re free to forage for fresh grass.

No Antibiotic Growth Promotants

Lilydale Free Range Chickens are free from antibiotic growth promotants and added hormones.

FREPA accredited

Lilydale farms are accredited by Free Range Egg and Poultry Australia (FREPA) and are regularly audited.  FREPA is a group of dedicated Free Range producers and accredited processors setting high standards of benchmark for farming free range meat chickens in Australia. Lilydale believes in FREPA’s standards, some of which include:

  • Chickens when fully feathered must have easy access to an area on which to range during daylight hours.
  • The area where birds are permitted to range must have shade and shelter.
  • The ranging area must be capable of continued production of palatable vegetation.
  • Only natural foods are permitted with vitamins and minerals for the birds' welfare.
  • Antibiotics are not permitted, except under veterinary direction. Any treated birds will not be sold as Free Range.

Lower Stocking Levels

Lilydale farms stock no more than 30 kg per square metre of internal floor space in the sheds at maximum density. This allows Lilydale Free Range Chickens more space per chicken to move in the barns than conventional barn raised chickens (density generally being 28-40 kg/m2)

Hay Bales And Perches

Hay bales and perches are placed in our range areas to encourage Lilydale Free Range Chickens to range outdoors. This provides interest, enrichment and activity for the chickens.

Australian Owned And Grown

Lilydale farms are located in NSW and SA primarily in and around the Barossa Valley and the Hunter regions.
All Lilydale Free Range Chickens are 100% Australian owned and grown.
