Our Vision

At the Farm Butchery, we care passionately about the region that we live in and wish to see it prosper and remain green and beautiful for our children to live & work in and to raise their children. Our aim is to restore those connections between the green hinterland around our rural towns and cities so that collectively we take care of the farmland which feeds us and provides us with clean, freshwater and space to breath.

We believe that locally grown food should be available for local people, of a quality which is kind to the land and good for our health too, and at a price which is fair to both the producer and consumer. We believe that Fair Trade should begin at home.

We care about ethics

Animal Health & Welfare

Animal health and welfare is the cornerstone of the farming systems. All farming systems are focused on ensuring top quality soil and pasture with a complete range of nutrients in the feed with careful matching of the animal genetics to the geography of the terrain.

Animals in top form thrive in organic systems.

Land Health

The soil is home to a vast ecology of bacteria, funguses and invertebrates that represent the largest biomass on the planet and plays a dominant role in our atmosphere and its composition. The farming systems are focused on ensuring an optimal environment for this invisible army to deliver nutrients to the meadows and grasses for the animals to thrive. Restorative farming practice includes getting wetland and waterways protected and functioning within the ecosystem.

Food Quality

Food quality is the final outcome of all the efforts. Sourced from balanced nutrients, animals in top form and with no pesticides. It is food that is flavoursome, interesting, and fills you up for longer. A solid foundation that you can build on for health and welfare of the family.
