Lamb, mutton & hogget
We're old fashioned whole body butchers and we source our lamb, mutton, hogget and goat directly from NSW producers practising regenerative farming that's good for the entire eco-system. This means low stocking densities, rotational grazing and no synthetic chemicals or growth hormones. We also believe in the importance of a vibrant, diverse genetic palette so we look for a range of different breeds and seek out slow-growing, heritage breeds. The sheep we source include Texels, Dorpers, Wiltshire Horn and Hampshire Downs.
We stock mutton and hogget whenever we can, although this is dependent on the farmers having enough fodder in the paddocks to allow sheep to grow out over a year. Unfortunately, droughts limit available feed so we haven't had much older sheep available over the last year or so.
