WE HAVE A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FARMERS.
OUR PRODUCTS WOULDN’T BE SO DELICIOUS OR NUTRITIOUS WITHOUT THEM.
We are proud to work with Bendele Farm. Grown on their certified organic family owned and operated farm in Kilkivan, Southeast Queensland, Fred and Sarah do an amazing job at producing true certified organic, free range poultry.
The flocks have access to roam and forage in their natural environment all day long and are put into secure pens at night to keep them safe. These birds consume the natural environment and vegetation while roaming around the property. They are also supplemented with certified organic feed when needed.
The birds are exposed to natural sunlight and fresh air all day long living a natural, happy, and stress-free life as nature intended.
All birds are hand processed on the farm to avoid any stress in transportation which not all poultry organic producers do. Transportation impacts poultry the most due to the smaller size of the animal. The vibration, noise, and temperature alone during the transportation of poultry causes a higher mortality rate. The stress causes alterations in the biochemical and physiological cell of the bird, reducing the quality and nutritional value of the meat.
Certified Organic poultry contains higher amounts of omega 3 essential fatty acids and is free from any hormones and antibiotics. Not only do hormones and antibiotics cause havoc on our health, they also impact the animal and affect the animals quality of life.
When hormones are injected into an animal to speed up the growth process, the synthetic hormones interact with the animals’ natural hormones and have been proven to cause aggressiveness, swelling and chronic stress conditions which is poor treatment for the animal and is also reflected in the quality of meat.
The use of hormones and antibiotics in poultry can also lead to increased human consumption of antibiotics unknowingly through the food we eat. This can reduce human tolerance to antibiotics and reduce their effectiveness over time. Additionally, research indicates particular pesticides and herbicides have links to wider human health issues. Choosing to eat organic meats can eliminate these risks altogether and ensure you are eating whole, clean, and high-quality foods.
Supporting family producers like Fred and Sarah from Bendele Farm ensures more poultry is produced in an ethical and sustainable way. They put a lot of love and hard work into ensuring these chickens live a natural, happy and stress-free life as nature intended.
Clayton's Organic Beef & Pork
"All our cattle come from carefully selected certified organic farms in Queensland. Along with grass, the cattle are provided a ration of high quality certified organic grain, silage and hay.
‘Tulloch Brae’ is the family’s finishing property just outside Toowoomba where ALL our cattle is cared for during the last 100 days. The property has an abundance of water which means the majority of the cattle’s supplementary certified organic feed can be home grown. The cattle have 640 acres to explore, and when it’s time, the family muster on horseback to minimise stress for the cattle.
Clayton’s Organic is a product of its’ environment. Clayton and Jackie Sargood’s vast pastures, clean rainfall, abundant sunshine and free range conditions produce the world’s finest all-natural organic cattle.Our cattle are selected for superior meat quality. The cattle graze freely, feeding on natural grasses, organic sorghum and organic corn. The high protein grasses are converted to soft textured muscle rather than fat.
Here at Clayton’s Organics, we follow simple but thoughtful practices in raising cattle humanely (stress-free) from the farm to the table.
Our Clayton’s Organic Beef is as you would expect, hormone and antibiotic free. It contains no artificial ingredients or additives, and is a healthy alternative to domestic beef; with reduced calories, fat and cholesterol content and is a valuable source of protein, minerals and essential B group vitamins."
