Welcome to Sommerlad Poultry


- the home of ethical poultry production-


On a property just out of Tenterfield in the New England high country of northern NSW,

the Sommerlad family and their team manage their exclusive strains of heritage table poultry, and breed and develop​ ​Australia's award-winning 'Sommerlad' chicken.


Tenterfield boasts some of the cleanest air in Australia, with its high altitude and surrounding national parks. Coupled with its mild summer temperatures, and neighbouring grain producers, it has been chosen as the perfect place to undertake this unique poultry project - the only one of its kind in Australia - and awarded "Outstanding Innovation" at the 2015 delicious. Produce Awards.
