Cages aren't cool, let's free range

Speckled-Hen-Free-Range-Eggs-Highveld-farm

“This one’s name is Henny Penny,” states four-year-old Angus as he picks his way through a flock of glossy auburn feathered hens pecking on the grassy hillside. His mom Vicky laughs, “They’re all called Henny Penny at some stage or the other, I think.” The hens have just popped out of their breezy shed perched on a lofty Dargle hill for their morning stretch, while the farm hands collect the eggs laid during the night. The shed, though it’s certainly packed with hens, is clean and dry and the hens look healthy. They’re allowed out during the day, but are locked up at night, and don’t seem that keen to venture too far away from their shed anyway.
 
For Vicky and Craig Alison, farming is in their blood. Having grown up in a farming community, it was just natural that they would pursue a living through some or other form of farming. Even when the couple did their ‘overseas experience’ in the UK, they were drawn to the farms.  When they returned to the Midlands looking for their next farming adventure, they decided to branch out a little and tried out exotic bird farming. After some time rearing McCaws, African Greys and other such birds, they realised cages weren’t for them, and that they are food producers at heart.

Living food

The farm that Craig’s family have owned for 16 years was too small for a commercially viable herd of cattle. As the Midlands is known as a poultry production area, this seemed a natural choice. However, while in the UK Vicky and Craig observed the trend towards free range chicken. And having realised that cages were no fun for animals during their exotic bird stint, they decided to try out free range egg farming. In 2010 they opened the doors of Highveld Freerange farm, which now produces 4000 eggs a day.

Vicky and Craig believe “food producers should live food”. They love their own product, and are very hands on farmers - even their two young kids enjoy collecting the eggs with the farm hands. The couple believe free range should be accessible to all consumers irrespective of what they earn. So they try to keep their prices down, and religiously check that their retail customers are not marking them up exorbitantly. “Earlier this year (2012) we had a run in with a retailer who marked our eggs up by 75% because it was free range. We fought them and they brought the price back down, thankfully’” says Vicky. “It’s not necessary that this type of food should be elitist.”

Farmers with integrity always get our stamp of approval!

Highveld eggs are sold as Speckled Hen Free Range Eggs and are available in the Midlands at Pick ‘n Pay’s and Spars, Pick ‘n Pay’s in Pietermaritzburg.

HOW TO GET BACK WITH YOUR EX LOVEER

by Dr Mojo Magagula  |   26 August 2016 06:21 AM   |   0 replies

Please read my testimony, it can bring solution to the problems you are
facing in life. I met this spell caster Dr Mojo online and read the
testimonies of many persons witnessing how he has help them solve problems
of any kind such as fibroid without surgery, Infertility, cure of diabetes,
breast cancer, weak penis, regulation of menstruation and pains, stroke,
HIV / AIDS, successful interview and work examination, political
achievement, recovery of lost money, quick sales in business or commerce,
choice of good marriage partner, power to bring your ex back, stopping your
man or woman having affair outside your relationship or marriage, power to
win pool, lottery, visa approval, reduction of sagging breast, gun
protecting spiritual ring, promotion at work etc ... I contacted him
through his WhatsApp instant messenger with the phone number +27797427509.I
was absolutely desperate to have my husband back. Life without my husband
was a pain for me and my children. I wanted a drastic change and I thought
that only magic can be the only solution because he was so cruel towards
me. After discussing my problem with Dr Mojo, he gave me hope that my
marriage shall be restored. He gave me confidence that he will make my
husband to come home and he did It! It was a great miracle, He never asked
for money before helping me, all he requested for was some few items i had
to purchase, and i provided these items immediately, he performed the spell
and my marriage was restored immediately. His help is invaluable! I do not
know what I could have done without Dr Mojo, he does his job well, his
powers are so real and effective, I think he is the best caster I can count
on when it comes spells, although at first I never believed in magic until
I had to try, I think there are many who are depressed, desperate and want
this spell to return their happiness, so I have to use this medium to reach
all those who are facing one problem or the other. Contact him immediately
and I can guarantee that your problems are solved. You can also contact him

'After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
