Our Philosophy

Katrina comes from a farming family, her parents even started growing organic vegetables in the 1980s – long before there were established organic standards or the level of awareness we have today as to the health benefits of eating organically sourced foods. Adrian also was profoundly impacted on the need for fresh clean organic food after witnessing his grandfather suffer with cancer, believed to have been caused by his exposure to chemicals during his working life.  Our life experience has reaffirmed our united belief that organic farming and clean eating should be a strong priority for all of us.

All members of the Hobbs family believe they enjoy better health when we eat organically. We are promoting healthy immune systems which result in fewer allergies and happier children! As parents, we attribute this to less exposure to chemicals and processed foods – part of our clean-living strategy. However we also believe food should not just be good for you, but it should taste great as well! A matter our children take very seriously too. Therefore eating nutritious food that is healthy, family-friendly and organic is very important to us.

As farmers, we believe that farming should leave the country in better condition than when we started and when you look after the land you produce a quality product as a result.  Our aim is to produce that good old fashioned tasting chicken with the added bonus of being free range and certified organic. It is the premium chicken of choice for many of our customers and the perfect option for those that are conscious of their health.  

Here at Hobbs Family Farms, we like to ensure that not only are our chickens grown well but they are processed in a way to ensure they retain their natural goodness.  Our process ensures the chickens retain the outer layer of skin during processing and the chicken is also air chilled, avoiding methods that remove skin layers, bleach or promote water absorption, we do things differently because we care about the product we produce and we want the best quality product from our family to yours.  .  

We love what we do and love to grow organic chicken that will be enjoyed by people all over Australia. Many years ago we adopted a saying, “You are a happy person if your work is your hobby”, and we all feel organics is more than our work, it’s our whole life as well as our hobby.
