We exist to help change the way people consume meat. A way that is more seasonal, ethical and sustainable.
The story of Locavore by Brooklet Springs
On a lush, small acreage in the subtropical hinterland of Byron Bay, thrive Australia’s most delicious chickens.
When Georgina Goddard and Morgwn Wilkie began Brooklet Springs Farm in 2016, now one of Australia’s largest regenerative poultry farms their motivations were fairly simple: they wanted to eat tasty and healthy protein. And they wanted to look after the farmland they’d recently moved to from the city.
After years of health issues, a new baby daughter, Perry in their hearts, and a failed pursuit for reliable, truly clean, pasture-raised protein, they invested in 30 chickens and set about their journey into the life of farming.

Now the couple are changing the ways of chicken farming – and the flavour of the chicken we eat.
“We started with our first 30 chickens because we liked the taste of chicken, not because we knew a thing about farming,” says Georgina, an architect. She and Morgwn, a builder, have been partners in life and business for more than 15 years — previously running their business Work Shop Objects in Brisbane, creating hand-crafted timber objects.

Brooklet Springs Farm has grown into one of the largest pasture-raised poultry producers in Australia, introducing to market the benefit of chickens that have the kind of life that many would be bohemian today dreams of.
