Approximately 500g - around 7 - 8 kidneys
Organ meats from healthy animals are among the most nutrient-dense foods and were highly prized in traditional societies where every part of the animal was consumed. The operative word here is 'healthy'. Organs such as the liver and kidneys perform critical filtering and cleansing functions in the body. The last thing you want to be eating is the organs from an unhealthy animal that led a miserable, restricted life in a shed.
All the organs we offer come from the whole, pasture-raised animals we source from regeneratively- managed farms. These animals are vigorous, robust and genuinely free ranging and their diets are diverse and complex resulting in prolific gut flora and healthy organs.
Kidneys pack a real nutrition and protein punch and are rich in B12, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamine (B1), Selenium, iron and vitamin K12 which ensures calcium is deposited in the right places in your body. B12 improves energy and blood cell formation, B2 aids energy production in your cells, B1 makes ATP, our cell's energy source, Selenium is an antioxidant and iron helps transfer oxygen from the lungs to the tissues.
We buy whole lambs, mutton and hogget seasonally on a rotating basis from a number of farms. Your cut will come from whichever lamb is available when you order. The lamb we source is:
- packed with the farm, breed and certification clearly labelled;
- dry aged for between two to six weeks, depending on the cut;
- lambs are 4 - 12 months old;
- hormone and antibiotic-free;
- grass-fed and finished on chemical-free pasture;
- a mix of breeds including Suffolk, Texel, Wiltipol, Australian Whites and Dorper;
- from NSW farms.
The producers we work with are entirely transparent about their processes and welcome all questions.
