• Bostock Chickens can be found at Raeward Fresh Queenstown
Ben Bostock runs an organic chicken farm. At first glance, this may not seem that interesting given our our well-greased marketing world of slick, modern grocery stores where every other product flashes the ‘organics’ title. However, when you scratch a little deeper, you’ll find that Bostock Chickens is actually one of only two farms in New Zealand to produce truly pastured, naturally fed birds. When terms like ‘free-range’ and ‘cage free’ get used in advertising these days, it gives us the impression that the chicken (or egg) is organic enough, but when you talk to Ben, you’ll find that it ain’t even close. For Ben, truly organic means the chicken lives in its natural environment eating real food that’s grown in the same place and where the chicken is processed under strict, certifiably organic practices. Bostock Chickens embody what I think is at the heart of the organic movement - going back to the basics to create sustainable well-being.
We’re pretty excited to be one of the few places in the South Island to carry Bostock Chickens!
