Cackleberries by Lashbrook Farm, Old Junee
Who runs this farm? Chooks! Owners of Lashbrook Farm, Bryson and Anna Lashbrook began supplying free range eggs from their property in Old Junee to a local café owned by friends. The café closing was a pivotal moment for the young family. They reassessed and from there Cackleberries – Aussie slang for eggs – was born with a small flock of reliable, friendly Isa Brown chickens, a passion for genuine free range and a quick learning curve in marketing.
During the day, the chickens are free to roam the property with access to all areas, including the verandah of the family home, and fed a handmade protein-rich grain mix and fresh rain water. The result is happier, healthier chickens and premium fresh eggs praised for their flavour. Accolades flow with Choice naming Cackleberries one of the top free range egg producers in the country.
Bryson and Anna supply three ranges, aptly named Big Clucker, Bumbusters and Itty Bitties, fresh to cafes and restaurants throughout the Riverina, the local Junee IGA and Mates Gully in Wagga Wagga.
