About Those Chickens

What is it about Caroola Farm chickens? How do we farm them, why do we do what we do and why on earth do they taste SOOOOOOO great (feedback from our customers, but of course we love them too).

    Australian heritage chicken now available

    Our heritage chicken is the most flavoursome and natural chicken you will find.
