Taranaki Farm Chicken System (Victoria, Australia)

Taranaki Farm is truly a wonderful place to witness. The farm focuses on producing pastured poultry, beef and pork, with laying hens moved onto new pasture every few days. It is a great combination of high tech and old-world, using electric fencing to keep the animals on fresh grass. This style of animal management helps to keep the animals parasite free, eliminates the problems of over-grazing and gives the pastures a good hit of natural fertility! Ben Falloon, the Taranki Farm steward, is passionate about regenerative agriculture and was more than happy to show us his systems that he’s worked out to keep the farm highly productive and chemical free. Instead of telling people what Taranaki Farm is about he prefers to show them and runs farm tours.
