Lamb & goat
We're old fashioned whole body butchers and we source our lamb, mutton, hogget and goat directly from NSW producers practising regenerative farming. We give preference to heritage breeds and our lamb comes from a number of farms including Moorlands bio-dynamic Farm (Texel) and New Horizon (Dorper).
We only sell farmed goat which is different to feral ('Rangeland') goat. We source 'Gourmet Goat Lady' Boer goats farmed at Buena Vista Farm near Collie.
90% of the goat sold and exported in Australia is feral or 'low input' composite goat - marketed under the more poetic euphemism of 'Rangeland' goat. The quality of feral goat meat can be highly variable depending on where and how the goats lived and buying it can be a bit of a lottery. Sometimes it's plump and delicious and other times stringy and tough. The variable quality and unfamiliarity means that folks are a little wary of goat and tend to default to lamb, but healthy, farmed goat, such as those tended and managed by the Stewarts, is an altogether different product with consistently high quality and wonderful flavour.
All animals are hormone and antibiotic-free and are born and raised on chemical-free pastures. They arrive to us via the abattoir as whole carcasses that we dry age (mutton and hogget only) and break to order. Your cut will be clearly labelled with the farm, breed and certification.
Because we buy the whole body (no boxed meat) we can usually cut anything you require. So if you don't see a product you're after here, just email or call and we'll make it for you.
Or come and select from the full range at our Marrickville Butchery. Pick up your Sift Produce fresh fruit and vegetables each Saturday morning.
