"I have always stood by every product because I
know exactly where it came from, and how it was
farmed. I have spent most of my adult life redefining
farming techniques to focus on producing an excellent
product to eat and not a 'commodity'. When we
say free range – we can define it. When we say vegetarian
– we mean it, when we say chemical free –
we know that we are."
At Barossa Farm Produce the results speak for themselves in
that Saskia has converted many local farmers over to free range
production. "We collaborate with our farmers on all aspects of
production and they learn from us as we learn from them."
Contrary to typical industry practice, Barossa's feed regime is
completely vegetarian and does not include meat or fish meal to
accelerate growth. Barossa Chickens are raised on a vegetarian
diet, with corn as the primary ingredient. The diet also includes
triticale, lupins, wheat and lucerne. It is free of chemicals and
additives. Barossa birds are processed between 8 and 16 weeks,
resulting in bird's with superior muscle development and texture
with a distinctive natural flavour. "We are very proud of our
chemical free processing" Saskia Beer.
Other Barossa Farm free range produce available include:
~ Geese ~ Pheasants ~ Guinea Fowl ~ Turkeys
