Family Values

Giuliana and Jason, owners of Talking Hens, are from an educational background and love talking to and interacting with customers. Warmly welcoming families to the farm is always a joy and they love watching the excitement of children seeing the hens, often for the first time.

Supporting, encouraging, and providing best practice information to families is a priority along with answering any and all questions. Staff are thoroughly trained, friendly, and approachable so that they are able to provide expert advice and support for families both new and experienced in keeping backyard chickens.


Circular economy principles are at the heart of Talking Hens, with a strong commitment to innovation, sustainability, and environmentally-friendly practices. Working on new ways to produce high-quality products using hempcrete, recycled wood and 3D Printing with metal and plant-based plastics are just some of the materials and technology that the business has been using. We are constantly searching for new, more sustainable practices, using locally made, high-quality, and recyclable materials wherever possible.
