Our dedicated farmers ensure all Lilydale chickens are fed a nutritious diet and their welfare is a key priority.

The accreditation logo on our packaging assures you that you are buying free range chicken that meets the FREPA standard.

FREPA Accreditation

Lilydale farms are accredited by Free Range Egg and Poultry Australia (FREPA) and are regularly audited to ensure we are meeting this standard.

The FREPA accreditation logo features on all Lilydale Free Range Chicken packaging, alongside our commitment to raising Lilydale chickens without the use of antibiotics, added hormones or added growth promotants.

We believe that FREPA is the leading accreditation body for free range meat chicken farms in Australia. FREPA is committed to free range standards and ensuring that all farms meet the standards through routine auditing. Importantly the standards mean:

  • Chickens, when fully feathered, must have easy access to an area on which to range during daylight hours.
  • The area where chickens are permitted to range must have shade and shelter.
  • The range area must be capable of continued production of palatable vegetation.
  • Only wholesome foods are permitted, with the addition of vitamins, minerals and amino acids as required for the welfare of the chickens.
