Terrewah Farm is a small-scale, mixed enterprise in Kangaroo Valley. They grow organic vegetables and herbs, raise pastured poultry for eggs and meat, run dorper lambs and have a small but beautiful herd of dexter cows who produce both milk and beef. They practice regenerative growing methods, don’t use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides but focus instead on nourishing soil, allowing it to grow naturally amazing produce. They are committed to growing a thriving local food system that is freshly harvested, ethically raised and chemical-free.
They do small batches (50-60) of chickens at a time, growing them for 2 weeks in the brooder and then on pasture, moved daily, for a further 6 weeks. Their portable coop is half covered (for shade and rain/wind protection) and half open to the sunshine. Birds dress out at an average weight of just over 2kgs. Some are 2.5 or 2.6. (We use them for whole birds, plus process in shop for thighs, wings, breasts, etc.
They don’t feed them organic grain, and their pasture is chemical-free. Birds are not medicated in any way (including in their feed).
