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.

We are all very excited here on Papanui with our delicious.magazine Produce Awards State Winner announced last week.
We are the only egg producer in NSW to receive an award for eggs. There are 3 others in VIC. The national awards will be held soon, so fingers crossed!
