I thought I'd done a post on this previously, but I looked back through and realised I hadn't, so....
We now have a few butchers supplying our pork, so if you can't make it to the markets, or can't wait until you put an order in, or just because you want to support your local butcher AND your local farmer at the same time, go along to one of these butchers and get some Dawson Valley Free Range Pork.
Gracemere Butchers in Gracemere, near Rockhampton have been supplying our pork for a while now. I'm not sure whether they use it in their ham and bacon, but just ask them.
Lilly Pilly Organics in Yeppoon are a home delivery Organic Food business. We were supplying all the pork and ham and bacon, but from now on it will be just the ham and bacon. They deliver to quite a few centres in Central Qld and use local farmers when ever they can.
Wooroolin Country Meats is in a small town down south. Clint and Tina own a butcher shop there and Clint travels to markets on the Sunshine Coast - Eumundi Markets on a Wednesday, Moolooabah Twilight Markets on a Friday
night (usually), Kawana Waters Artisans and farmers Markets on a Saturday
morning & Noosa Farmers Markets on a Sunday morning. They do ham and bacon as well as fresh pork.
Forest Glen Organic Meats on the Sunshine Coast have just started with us. They supply other free range pork, so if you pop in there for a look, make sure you ask for our pork. If people start asking for ours, they might buy more from us!!
We even supply to Western Queensland. Mitchell Grass Meats in Longreach supply our pork to their customers.
We are really pleased to have these butchers and hope to get a few more yet. I'm looking into how we can get it North as well. If you are reading this and you think that we may not have enough for the local market, fear not! We would like to expand our private customers (that's the part I really like) and we have plenty of pigs, and they breed really fast! For our business to survive and therefore continue to supply the private customers, we need to be a bit bigger, so we need butchers. Check them out when you can and let them know that you know about us. AND if you live in a town that has a butcher that doesn't supply our pork, tell him he should!
