​​​​​​​​​Sommerlad Chicken

When you purchase Sommerlad chicken
​you are supporting:​​

  • A 100% Australian poultry genetics company.

  • The continued development of slower growing meat chickens specifically suited to Australian conditions.

  • Diversity in your diet and the food chain gene pool. At a time when nearly all chicken farmed and eaten in Australia comes from the same genetic stock, ​Sommerlad chicken represents a return to the genetic diversity of yesteryear.

  • ​Small-scale family farmers as they preserve traditional farming practices, and create and maintain a niche table bird market as a viable and sustainable alternative to factory chicken farming.

  • ​Natural farming methods that promote healthy soils, healthy vegetation and healthy animals. 

  • Re-connection with your local farmer and food source.
