Most Australians have been in and out of lockdown for the best part of 18 months, with trips to butcher and grocery stores limited to once a day at times. High demand and empty shelves have also been hard to deal with, and at times you’re probably not even sure where the meat has come from, so, it might be time to start ordering your meat directly from the farmer.
The pros far outweigh the cons when it comes to ordering your meat direct. You know exactly where the meat has come from, you know how it was raised, what it was fed, and you can even talk directly to the producer if you’re got any questions about it whatsoever.
So, it’s settled, you’re going to be ordering meat directly from the farm from now on. Here are the best paddock to plate butchers to order from.
