About Good Life free range chicken from Tegel

Tegel also raises free range chickens and turkeys. Brought up in large, open barns for the first few weeks of their life. Once fully feathered, they venture outside where they are free to roam, shelter under trees, forage, and peck amongst natural vegetation. All of our free range farms meet or exceed New Zealand Animal Welfare standards, and are part of a programme that can be independently audited at any time to ensure these standards are consistently met.
