all creatures great and small

free range chickens

We are always looking for ways to better ourselves in the world of free range, organic and sustainable products. Even though we have come a long way, we are very proud to be associated with companies like Solitaire Free Range Eggs.

Solitaire Free Range Farm in the Hemel en Aarde Valley, pride themselves in the products from truly happy, free roaming hens that wonder around during the day, outside their hen house.

We believe that happy animals provide us with a better quality product. Solitaire hens are fed on a varied vegetarian diet of good quality grains and pulses that contain no colorants, preservatives or animal by-products. Their hens are exposed to exercise and sunshine and are treated humanely at all times.

Our hearts are warmed when we can provide a product that is sourced from companies that care how animals are treated.

If you consider that our Deli uses approximately 10500 eggs per month, we believe we are making a difference and companies like Solitaire are helping us to do so.
