Twenty hectares of rich red soil and lush green pastures nestled in the hills near Trentham in central Victoria. They only grow ‘slow food’ which means their chickens, sheep and cattle are slow growing, old-style varieties that are allowed to reach full maturity before being prepared for the table. They grow a very special breed of chicken called Sommerlad, which is reminiscent of the famous Bresse and Label Rouge chickens from France. This is a unique, slow growing breed, with a rich flavour and texture. The birds thrive in small batches, roaming freely in our forest and grazing on a diet of wild grubs, seeds, grits, and organic feed.
