Our free-range chickens and turkeys are brought up in large, open barns for the first few weeks of their lives. Once fully feathered, they venture outside where they are free to roam, forage, stretch and perform natural behaviours.
Partnering with SPCA, all of our free range farms are SPCA certified and can be independently audited at any time to ensure that our systems meet the needs of our chickens and support the promotion of positive experiences.
Tegel chickens are cage free and are raised in large, modern, well-equipped barns.
They are free to move around and have ready access to food and water. These barns are carefully monitored to ensure our chickens are well looked after.
All our farms are independently audited to ensure they meet or exceed the requirements of the New Zealand Animal Code of Welfare and MPI (Ministry for Primary Industries) and Tegel have extensive assurance and monitoring programmes in place to ensure high levels of animal health, welfare and food safety.
