A bit about us
Kia ora and welcome to our family's free range chicken farm. We are proudly located in Waitawa, just outside of Pleasant Point in South Canterbury. Our three boys are our models for a lot of our pictures (and they help out a lot with the farm work too!).
We had been raising chickens for a while on a very small scale but decided, in late 2018, that we could see ourselves making a business out of it. So, after many late nights filled with research and planning, we bought a few hundred hens from Heslips Hatcheries in Fairlie and we built some sheds and worked our way through registering with MPI.
We wanted a brand with strong links to the land and our location. 'Waitawa Creek' actually runs nearby and the original farm, upon which our much smaller farm was based, was called Waitawa Downs. And so, Waitawa Creek Eggs was born.
Fast forward to today and we are continuing to grow our capacity and our customer base. We raise our own hens from day old chicks and we have upgraded to a larger farm in Levels Valley (just around the corner from the original farm). We eat our eggs every day and think they are pretty delish - we know you will too.
