Kangaroo Island Free Range Eggs is a family owned and operated pastured egg farm situated on the pristine Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Tom and Fiona Fryar established Kangaroo Island Free Range Eggs in 1992 with just 400 hens.
Today, Tom and Fiona and their sons, Thomas and Jason (with their families) run 60,000 pastured full beaked hens that range on the farm at no more than 190 hens to the hectare. There are 64 chicken sheds that are fully mobile so they can be easily moved to fresh pasture giving each hen plenty of space to scratch and peck at seeds, grass and insects. The mobile poultry sheds provide roosting rails, nest boxes and shelter for the hens.
Maremma Guardian Dogs live with the hens on the farm, keeping guard over them day and night to protect them from predators.
The hens eat a natural diet supplemented by a mixture of grains that are grown, harvested and crushed all on the farm.
Eggs are gathered daily and stored in a cool-room to ensure a product of excellent freshness and quality. They are sold and transported in refrigerated transport to stores and outlets on Kangaroo Island, Adelaide, regional South Australia, Melbourne and Sydney.
You will find Kangaroo Island Free Range Eggs on the shelf to purchase in many places around Kangaroo Island including; Drakes Kingscote, Penneshaw IGA, Parndana Bakery & Caltex Kingscote.
