Meet Our Farmers
Great Northern Poultry is owned and operated by Cameron Ward and Angus Shepherd. Their collaboration produces high-quality gourmet poultry, including the exclusive Black Namoi, that has been raised under the best conditions.
The Shepherd family manage all aspects of the specialist genetics, breeding, brooding and hatching of our poultry, on their farm just outside Manilla NSW.
What makes the Black Namoi unique?
The Black Namoi is a modern spin on the traditional rare breed and Asian coveted, black skin "Silkie" chicken. The Black Namoi is the result of new bloodlines and crossbreeding, culminating in a small, tender table bird with:
- startling black skin and bones;
- a good layer of fat;
- a greater proportion of moist meat; and
- a deeper, richer and less gamey flavour than the traditional Silkie.
