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.
