Milawa Free Range Poultry
On a small-scale 80-acre farm, yielding around 1,000 birds a week, Russell Mickle of Milawa Free Range Poultry proudly raises his chooks very differently to ‘industrial’ farms. His free-range and organic chooks roam about for up to ten weeks before reaching market weight.
Russell’s beautiful birds are fed a high-protein, GM-free grain, grass and mineral diet – free from chemicals and animal by-product additives. This ensures that Russell’s farm produces chooks that Epicure has judged as “meaty with gutsy flavour” and explains why they are a favourite among chefs.
Milawa Free Range Poultry products are also available through VFMA Farmers’ Markets and carries an ACO accreditation.
