Free Range with a difference: FRENZ mantra has always been “Keeping it Real.”

It’s a significant difference where today’s customer wants assurance that free-range means what it says and is not just a marketing term. This real way of farming has been FRENZ philosophy for more than 30 years confirming that their sustainable model of giving free access for all their hens to the great outdoors is truly free range.

Now when you take those added benefits of higher natural protein, greater Omeaga3 levels and less saturated fats inside each egg and then use the latest technology to ensure the outside of each egg is “Kitchen Safe” you have the best of both worlds. Clean and sanitised shells are the most hygienic and preferred method to ensure you and your family are not put at risk when handling eggs from the farm in your kitchen.

And because our flocks are kept in small family farm environments, we can ensure that each egg is stamped with a unique FRENZ message. Each pack also receives a unique flock number so you can trace your egg to the family farm using our Flock identity finder on our website and meet our passionate farmers who enjoy producing the best eggs in the world from their farm to your plate.”
