Jeanne’s humane farming practices and the stringent quality control measures in place at every step of her operations, ensures that consumers receive exactly what Jeanne set out to achieve: Drug-free, stress-free, antibiotic-free, animal by-product-free and unmistakably healthy tasting chicken.
Concerned about her family’s wellbeing, she had become increasingly worried about the health impact of processed foods. When she reached the point where she point-blankly refused to feed her children any mass-produced chemically enhanced meat, Jeanne decided to start experimenting with the free range practice. After tasting her plump and healthy chickens, friends and family started placing orders. Jeanne knew she was onto something when she realized how great the demand was for humanely-reared chicken devoid of chemical enhancement.
Armed with a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a BSc Agriculture in animal physiology and genetics, Jeanne ultimately grew her small project into one of the South African poultry industry’s greatest success stories. This successful women-owned entrepreneurial endeavor is constantly advocating a powerful contribution in the drive towards truly free range.
