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.

Shoulder to Shank right near where Mario's used to be, are selling our eggs now.

We will be at Paddock to Pantry tomorrow from 9 to 11 selling our pullet's eggs. These are generally not available to the public as our chefs snap them up quickly. They are smaller than our regular eggs but they are fantastic to poach or any other way you might like to enjoy them. Di will be there with a smile 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
