Rohde’s have been producing Free Range Eggs for more than 50 years, in the pristine rural surrounds of Tarlee, 80 Kilometres north of Adelaide on the edge of the Clare Valley.


In the 1950s, Ian and Jill Rohde decided to supplement their farm income by dedicating a small area of their Ruradene Farm property to hens.

Over the years, demand has continued growing for their quality, free range eggs. In 1998, John & Angela and Ian & Jill expanded the business, harnessing three generations of Rohde family expertise (including their four children) and the tireless efforts of their dedicated employees.

Every Rohde Free Range Egg you buy has been produced by one of 50,000 chooks who roam freely from paddock to laying shed and produce approximately 38,000 eggs per day. That mighty effort accounts for one out of every five free range eggs produced in South Australia!

Life is blissful for the hens who tuck into the grain grown on the farm and lay in spacious, comfortable conditions in a modern facility which is carefully monitored. Conditions are so good that the Ruradene Farm is the only RSPCA accredited free range egg farm in South Australia!

Before our Rohde’s Free Range Eggs can be distributed to SA retail businesses, restaurants and hotels/motels, they are graded on the property into 300g and 350g half dozen cartons, 600g, 700g, 800g cartons and catering packs ready for immediate sale and use. Rohde’s Free Range Eggs are also available interstate, consumed through the Three Beans franchise in New South Wales and sold through Somerville Egg Farms in Victoria.

Rohde’s Free Range Eggs are Australian Egg Corporation Ltd assured and audited.
