Papanui Open Range Eggs


What is Papanui?

  • Papanui is a property located near Merriwa in the Upper Hunter Valley of NSW.
  • The property supports beef cattle and open range eggs as complimentary enterprises.
  • Papanui has been a family run property since 1964 and we began producing open-range eggs in 2001.

How does it work?

  • The chooks roost in mobile homes, made from old buses.
  • They follow the cattle in a planned grazing system, moving every few days to fresh pasture.
  • They are protected by Maremma dogs from foxes, eagles and other prey.

Why Open Range?

  • Our chooks have complete freedom to roam as far as they like every day, and are not contained by any fences.
  • They have a full beak enabling them to forage properly for food in the paddocks.
