Feast and famine - 18 months in the life of Gundooee Organic Wagyu

Feast and famine - 18 months in the life of Gundooee Organic Wagyu

Feast, because we're offering sensational, 6 week dry aged Gundooee Organic beef prime cuts. Famine, because the fall out from last February's devastating bushfires compounded by drought continues.

The Miracle of the Ruminant (musings on veal)

The Miracle of the Ruminant (musings on veal)

It still astonishes me that a creature with the heft and majesty of a fully mature cow (or moose, or elk, or water buffalo) may be understood as a synthesis and distillation of every thing that is good in the simple pasture and forage that it is offered.

Where, oh where, did the offal go?

Where, oh where, did the offal go?

"The vealer bodies arrived this morning, great condition, but no offal, AGAIN”, said Grant, in a despairing tone. This has been a conversation he and I have had, more times than I care to recall, over the past five years that South Hill, Wildes Meadow has been supplying our produce to Feather and Bone.

Can veal be grown ethically?

Can veal be grown ethically?

Veal is a challenging topic made more so by the fact that there is no clear national definition. It's not a big part of our national culinary tradition (whatever that might be) and we're aware of suspect ethical issues in the industry so we tend to give it a wide berth. But veal is delicious and it can be produced ethically. In fact, with more consumer support, male dairy calves could play a big part in providing an alternative income source for dairy farmers and play a big part in reviving their fortunes.

Beastly beauty

Kiss off-piste!

Kiss off-piste!

Ok, I admit it. That headline (Mr Bone's contribution) was a craven attempt to get you in. But Brian Kiss did actually go off-piste and it's a serious story about the challenges farmers have to deal with in their efforts to supply us with the gorgeous food we eat each week.

Christmas & the definition of luxury

Christmas & the definition of luxury

Christmas fills me with conflict. I want to hide under the table with a bottle of gin, stuff my face with gorgeous food and do penance for the excessive consumption and our role in promoting it - all at once.
