Welcome to yandina butchery!
pasture raised chicken from our Family to Yours!
WHAT IS PASTURE RAISED CHICKEN?
Pasture-raised chicken refers to meat produced from chickens which receive a significant portion of their nutrition from organically managed pastures. Sometimes the foraged feed may be dried and stored for future use. Pasture-raised chickens graze on organic grass, as they roam freely in pastures which are chemical free. This means the pasture is not treated with any synthetic fertilizers. There are no pesticides being used either.
Grain fed chickens are often fed grains in order to ensure that the chickens gain weight rapidly, so that they may be slaughtered. Pasture raised chicken offers a myriad of benefits in comparison to grain fed chicken, from environmental benefits to health benefits. At Yandina Butchery, we ensure that our customers can enjoy 100% pasture raised, chemical free chicken which comes from happy, free-ranged chickens. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer a high quality, pasture raised product which can be delivered to your door, or collected from our butcher shop on the Sunshine Coast.

BENEFITS OF PASTURE RAISED CHICKEN
Better For Your Health
Chicken which is produced from pasture raised chickens is healthier and more nutrient-rich for us to eat than chicken produced from grain-fed chickens.
Grass Is Healthier For Animals
Several scientific studies show that pasture raised animals are happier, less stressed, live longer lives and are more fertile than those farmed intensively.
Good For The Environment
Grass-fed farms often have a positive carbon footprint, by regenerating the soil rather than depleting it, and supporting more wildlife.
Supports Local Farmers
Pasture raised livestock helps support local farmers as grass is an often under utilised crop and there is a lot of potential to produce more food from our grassland, reducing the need to import feeds.
Do you know where your food comes from? Do you know what it’s fed, injected with, or what quality of life it experiences? We are a family operated butcher shop, founded by these very questions. We think you should know exactly where your food comes from and that it experienced a cruelty-free life.
Our goal at Yandina Butchery is to produce food that we feel good about feeding to our children. Pasture raised pork is high in nutrients from grass and plants, according to nature’s incredible design.
By including pasture raised pork in your diet, you can ensure that you and your family are receiving high numbers of vitamins and amino acids. Pasture raised pigs feast on grass and plants in pastures and are free to roam. This means that the nutrients which pigs absorb from grass are present in the pork that they produce.
“You are what you eat” is more prevalent than ever today, given that we now understand the health impacts of specific foods. This rule is also applicable to chicken as their diet can significantly affect the nutrient composition of their meat. This is particularly evident when it comes to fatty acid composition.
The way chickens are fed can have a major effect on the nutrient composition of their meat. In modern times, with the growth of commercial farming – chickiens are often fed grains. However, the animals which people ate throughout evolution roamed free and ate grass. Many studies have shown that the nutrients in chicken can vary depending on what the chickens eat. This has led to society questioning whether the way chickens are fed makes any difference to your health.
Studies have shown grass fed, pasture raised chickens usually contains less total fat than grain-fed chicken, which means that gram for gram, grass-fed chicken contains fewer calories. However, the composition of fatty acids is also different between the two types of chicken. It has been proven that grass fed chicken contains up to five times as much omega-3 as grain fed chicken. Omega-3 is an essential vitamin which has been shown to improve brain function and overall health.
Fatty acids found in pasture raised meat are essential for human growth and development and are often thought to only be derived from fruits, vegetables and fish. However these fatty acids also occur in abundance in grass fed chicken. Pasture raised chicken is a rich source of this healthy fat because the chickens spend their lives eating plants that are naturally rich in omega-3s themselves. By eating this natural diet, the chickens are able to absorb nutritious fats. As a result of this, grass fed chicken has nearly 60% more omega-3s than chicken from chickens that have been raised on a low-omega-3 grain diet.
There are a wide range of benefits associated with omega-3s, these include: a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. Omega-3s also helps reduce symptoms of hypertension, depression, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), joint pain and other rheumatoid problems, as well as certain skin ailments. Research from various studies has shown that omega-3s can also boost the immune system and help protect us from an array of illnesses.
