Who sells free range eggs in South Africa?
Many poultry farms offer free range eggs, as do many supermarket chains – remember “free rage” is a term that is loosely used – government regulations on free range eggs are quite clear on what can be defined as a free range egg – and that definition is not as kind to chickens as everyone would believe. The regulations still allow for cramped living conditions and such a small outside space that it hardly warrants the term “free range”. Find an egg farmer you can trust – visit the free range egg farm for yourself, and you will soon see who embraces the spirit of free range egg farming.
Chicken farming regulations are being worked on – so South Africans can expect changes for the better. As hard as it is to find true free range eggs in Gauteng – a bit of hunting in your area may turn up a small egg farm which is willing to let you visit and buy eggs directly from the farm. Want to start raising your own chickens for free range – it is not difficult – a small chicken coop and the right poultry equipment and you could be eating your own free range eggs! Free range eggs in Bryanston, free range eggs in Pretoria and free range eggs in Hartebeespoort can be purchased from Happy Eggs eggs farm.
