Our Story

How our journey started

Grower pens @ Littlehampton

Nestled in the serene Adelaide Hills of South Australia, Pip & Grow is a cherished heritage chicken farm, nurtured by the loving care of a tight-knit family: Hanna, Topher, their four growing children, and their faithful canine companions. Our deep-rooted passion revolves around heritage chickens, and we take immense joy in sharing our enthusiasm with others.

Our journey began as backyard poultry enthusiasts, tending to our feathered friends with tenderness and curiosity. Through years of growth and learning, Pip & Grow has evolved from a simple hobby into a thriving endeavor—a responsibility and commitment we embrace wholeheartedly.

Today, our farm has flourished into a haven boasting 21 breeding pens nestled in the serene Adelaide Hills, complemented by 6 brooders and 12 grower pens at our Littlehampton property, where we meticulously hatch eggs and nurture chicks. Spanning two separate properties, we adhere to strict biosecurity protocols to ensure a safe environment for our cherished chicks, growers, and esteemed breeders alike.

As of 2024, we proudly stand as one of Australia’s rare small-scale heritage breeders, implementing an extensive poultry vaccination program covering ailments such as Marek’s disease, Coccidiosis, Mycoplasma MS/MG, ILT A20/SA2, and Coryza. Our feathered companions, fondly known as “Our Grand Chookies,” reside in every corner of Australia, serving as starter flocks for breeders and backyard enthusiasts nationwide. We prioritize ethical breeding practices, ensuring the well-being, happiness, and health of our beloved birds—a commitment that fills us with pride.

At Pip & Grow, we understand that our farm isn’t just about chickens; it’s about community. It’s about sharing stories, exchanging tips, and reveling in the simple joys of watching feathers flutter in the morning breeze. Here’s to our clucks, our crows, and the promise of each new sunrise!

P.S. As a genuine small family business, Pip & Grow wears many hats. From customer service and inquiries to order processing, chicken care, shipping, social media management, and website upkeep, it’s all in our capable hands. Although there may be times when we make mistakes or respond slowly, rest assured that we are committed to addressing your needs as promptly as possible.

Kind regards,
Hanna & Topher from Pip & Grow
