Red Earth Chicken: Happy, healthy chicken

At Red Earth Chicken we live and breathe happy, healthy chicken. Our free range chicken is so natural, it’s as if you’ve raised them yourself in your back garden. The difference? We’ve done it for you.


We’re a wife-and-husband team, Stephanie and Dustin Taljaard, who moved from the city to McGregor in 2017,and embarked on our vision: to build a sustainable, ethical, working farm.


Red Earth Farm, a gorgeous 9.3 ha farm 4 kilometers outside of McGregor in the Breede River Valley, has taken shape to become and events & wedding venue, home and livery to retired sports horses, veggie gardens, sheep, pigs, ducks, geese and, now, chickens.


Inspired by our young children, Finley and Jack, and the desire to nourish them with healthy chicken, we launched Red Earth Chicken in February 2021.

A Red Earth chicken is…  

  • Pasture-fed a certified vegetarian grain-based diet
  • Free to roam, behave, and grow… naturally
  • Given no hormones or antibiotics, absolutely no medication whatsoever and not fed any animal by-products or growth promoters
  • Reared in a stress-free environment
  • Processed and prepared by a small-scale, specialised processing facility in Worcester
  • Sold directly from Red Earth Farm

Happy, healthy chickens. Simple and straightforward.

What our happy customers have to say:

“Everything you want in good, healthy country food – plus the taste.”

“Massive chickens!!”

“The tastiest chicken ever, reminding me of my childhood when my father carved chicken, and there was plenty for the eight people sitting around the table.”


“My late mother taught me about how to cook and how to prepare a chicken in the oven. I used my family recipe and would like to say your chicken was the best I have tasted since 1970. Thank you!”

“Chicken is delicious with awesome texture and lovely roasting juices” – Christiaan Campbell

“The quality of your chicken is extraordinary. It’s the only time I have ever eaten chicken breast that tasted delicious and is moist and flavourful. Thanks – you guys do a great job!”
“We smashed them. SO yum, and succulent and delicious. I didn’t get a picture because we gobbled them so fast. You make the best chicken I have ever had.”
“Taken chicken expectations to a whole new level in this family..  Everyone needs to taste the difference.”
“Different basis to even ####. Reminded me of how chicken used to be before supermarkets and intensive farming practices destroyed flavor. I’m a fan.”

And that’s what Red Earth Chicken is about: quality and ethical free-range chicken that brings people together at lunch, dinner, and the braai.
