THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS HAM & TURKEY
Each year, Christmas turns up on the doorstep like an
over-eager dinner party guest arriving an hour early and
catching you in the shower or half dressed or frantically
stuffing things into cupboards. This year it’s no different.

We’re in the middle of building a proper, grown up
online shop where you don’t have to wade through an
encyclopaedia to find the item you want. It will showcase
our Christmas cornucopia and make it easy for you to
place orders for hams, turkeys, mince pies and all the
other lovely things we’ll have available. In the meantime,
please order using our current method.
SMOKED PASTURED PORK HAM
The legs we turn into hams arrive at our factory as whole animals
direct from the farm through the abattoir. The pigs are entirely pastureraised on chemical-free pastures or woodlands at NSW farms:
Melanda Park, Mayfield and Pillar Rock (all certified Humane Choice
Free Range) and Limerick Farm. We know which farms our hams
came from, how they’ve been stored, how they’ve been cured and,
finally, who is buying them. Brined (salt and sugar) and smoked for us
by Sunshine Meats. Minimum nitrite level (0.0012%).
Please note: the 10% discount for first-time customers doesn’t apply to Christmas products or spits.

DEUTSCHER’S RARE BREED TURKEYS
Dadswell Bridge, Victoria
Born, bred and killed at the farm. Rare breed turkeys are more agile
and grow more slowly than the commonly available White turkey
with slightly darker, gamier-flavoured meat and the skin and fat are
yellower. The birds range freely on chemical-free pastures and are
regularly moved onto fresh grass giving them access to green pick
and insects which results in higher Omega 3 levels. Breeds include
Bourbon Red, Narragansett and Black Bronze.
Deutscher Heritage turkeys
Almond Grove Broad Breasted White turkeys
ALMOND GROVE BROAD BREASTED WHITE TURKEYS
Murray Bridge, SA. Certified Humance Choice Free Range
The only Humane Choice certified turkeys in Australia. NAASA
certified organic for ten years and produces almonds, olives and
seasonal turkeys. The turkeys feed on non-organic, locally sourced
grains so they can’t be marketed as certified organic.
The poults arrive as day olds and range freely on pasture as soon
as they are feathered. Between 12 to 20 weeks, the turkeys are
transported to the nearby Kapowie Poultry processor and then
dispatched to us.

PRIVATE BUTCHERY CLASSES
Bond over brisket and then over beer - our classes are excellent for team
building or parties. Share an enlightening, informative, amusing and delicious
experience.
WHOLE ANIMAL BUTCHERY $220 per person: 1.00-4.30 pm
More classes next year
Demonstration of breaking a whole animal, hands on butchering of gross and
fine cuts, instruction, apron, boning knife, refreshments (barbecue and Young
Henrys beer) and the meat you cut.
There aren’t too many butchers around town who only buy whole animals
direct from the farms they’ve visited personally. We make a point of learning
as much as possible about how the animals we sell are born, bred and
processed. So when we run a butchering class we’re not talking about
frenching a cutlet. We take the whole body of an animal, discuss where it came
from, how it lived and how that informs the quality and structure of the carcass.
We break it down and show you how it’s formed (very similar to our bodies)
and then get to the detail of individual cuts. You’ll learn a lot about provenance,
texture and anatomy and practical knife skills. After which we’ll barbecue the
fruits of our labour and wash them down with a local ale.
BUTCHERING 101 $220 per person: 1.00-4.30 pm
Sat 22/11 ONE SPOT LEFT
Demonstration of boning hands on butchering, instruction, apron, boning knife,
refreshments (barbecue and Young Henrys beer) and the meat you cut.
Do you massacre the chook when you joint it? Does the string on your rolled
roast remind you of school macrame projects? When you sharpen your
expensive kitchen knives do they inexplicably end up slightly blunter than
before? If this sounds familiar and you also fancy knowing how to bone a
lamb leg then this class is for you. We’ll explain the provenance of the meats
we source and then we’ll teach you how to bone and butterfly a chicken and
a lamb leg. You’ll also learn the art of tying a beautiful lamb roast and how to
propery sharpen your knives. After which we’ll barbecue the fruits of our labour
and wash them down with a local ale.
SAUSAGE MAKING $125 per person: 1.00-3.30 pm
Sat 29/11 ONE SPOT LEFT
Demonstration of mixing, filling and linking, hands on preparation, instruction,
apron and sausages to take home.
It’s time to elevate the humble sausage from a receptacle for all the rubbish
and scrapings that can’t otherwise be sold by butchers to its proper role as
a mouth-watering showcase for gorgeous, local ingredients. Join us as we
explain the provenance of the meats we source and the secret art of creating
the superlative snag. You’ll learn about fat content, mince grades, the delicate
balance of herbs and spices in the mix and get to try your hand at the whole
process - mincing, mixing and linking. After which we’ll barbecue the fruits of
our labour and wash them down with a local ale.

FEATHER AND BONE BOXES
THE LORD & LADY MCAULEY MEAT TRAY
This is our shot at making ordering easier...and more affordable because it’s 10% cheaper
if you buy a box. The Lord and Lady McAuley Meat Tray yields six-seven meals for
approximately $5.50-7.00 per person. More than Macca’s but a helluva lot better for you
and the world in which we live.
The contents in the Tray change each fortnight or when we run out of things and we very
occasionally put frozen produce in if fresh isn’t available. You’ll receive a combination of
fast and slow cooking cuts usually including beef, veal, pork, lamb, chicken and cured

WALK-THE-TALK BEEF BOX $64.00
They say you should only eat the parts of an animal as often as their ratio to the whole. So, eye fillet comprises about
2% of a whole cow and should therefore be eaten 2% of the time. Topside and brisket, however, are far more plentiful
and should be eaten more often. This is a box that combines prime and secondary cuts thereby allowing you to walk the
Caring Carnivore talk but have your juicy rump and eat it too. Dry-aged rump steak

OUR POULTRY - DIFFERENT PRODUCTS AVAILABLE SEASONALLY
JUMJUM MUSCOVY DUCKS Ravensdale, NSW
Jumjum is at Ravensdale, next to the Wyong River north of Sydney. The ducks are born and bred on the farm and range
on pasture under Hazelnut trees. They’re processed nearby at RedLeaf. Muscovy duck meat is richer and darker than
Pekin which is why large Muscovy drakes are often passed off as geese.
BUENA VISTA PASTURED CHOOKS Gerringong, NSW
Buena Vista chooks range free on chemical-free pastures enclosed by mobile electric net fencing. The chooks are
regularly rotated onto fresh pasture so they have access to plenty of fresh green pick and to allow pasture regeneration.
The grain they’re fed doesn’t contain a high proportion of corn and this diet combined with a very healthy, active life
outside means that Buena Vista chooks produce a leaner bird with compact, firm meat that is slightly darker in colour
than less active poultry. We receive Buena Vista chooks every fortnight.
INGLEWOOD ORGANIC CHOOKS Inglewood, QLD
We visited Inglewood in June this year to find out what large scale certified organic production really looks like and found
it pretty much as promised. It’s very well-organised and clean and the birds have full access to outdoor pasture. Given
the scale of the operation, Inglewood processes onsite which means no travel and less stress for the birds. We can never
keep up with demand for pastured chooks so, having checked Inglewood out in person, we’re happy to offer their chooks.
SAVANNAH CHOOKS Clare Valley, SA
The Lallys are working on a long-term project to transform their traditional broad acre cropping and grazing property to
a vertically-integrated sustainable farm. The organising principle is bio-mimicry of systems that worked sustainably for
centuries on savannah lands across the world - high stocking densities for short periods. The chooks are raised in
large, mobile chook pens that are moved to fresh grass every day along the chemical-free pastures that were previously
grazed by the Lally’s sheep, so they keep the insects down and fertilise the pasture at the same time.
DEUTSCHER’S RARE BREED TURKEYS Dadswell Bridge, Victoria
Born, bred and killed at the farm. Rare breed turkeys are more agile and grow more slowly than the commonly available
commercial White turkey with slightly darker, gamier-flavoured meat and the skin and fat are yellower. The birds range
freely on chemical-free pastures and are regularly moved onto fresh grass giving them access to fresh green pick
and insects which results in higher Omega 3 levels. Breeds include Bourbon Red, Narragansett and Black Bronze.

MUTTON
Mutton is a ewe or castrated male (wether) with more than two permanent incisors in wear, over three years old. The
flavour is rich and intense. Lamb is to mutton what veal is to beef so mutton is more deeply flavoured and benefits from
hanging and dry-ageing.

CURED MEATS: FEATHER AND BONE
All Feather and Bone cured pork products are made from pasture-raised, chemical-free pigs that we buy whole directly
from four NSW farms: Nantucket, Melanda Park, Pillar Rock and Mayfield. Melanda Park, Pillar Rock and Mayfield
are certified Humane Choice Free Range. The herds are mixed breed and include English Large Whites, Berkshires,
English Large Blacks, Landrace, Hampshires, Durocs and Wessex Saddleback. All commercially-available cured meats
contain nitrates which are not harmful in moderate quantities. Unless otherwise specified, these products contain the
minimum amount of chemical nitrate (0.01%).

DRY CURED, COLD SMOKED BACON - OUT OF STOCK, BACK SOON
Made from pasture raised, Humane Choice Free Range certified Mayfield Farm pork and cured for us by Pialligo
Estate (voted Australia’s Best Artisan Bacon Makers at Australian Bacon Week 2014). Most cured pork is brined
and hot smoked. Traditional dry cured products are packed in salt and herbs to draw out moisture and infuse flavour
resulting in a denser, drier product. We sourced a baconer from the wonderful Mayfield Farm which the Pialligo
crew cured and cold smoked for up to 17 hours in their traditional smokehouse with brick-kiln at Pialligo Farm outside
Canberra.

BBQ AREA: SPIT BBQ
SPIT BBQ
Roasting an animal on the spit provides both a delicious and easy feast and a dramatic focus for a party. It’s a perpetually
fascinating spectacle and every time we use them and see how they draw people in we’re reminded of how compelling they
are.
Our spits
Our spits are commercial grade stainless steel, rated to carry 40 kg and locally made, except the motors which are imported.
They cook using charcoal and we use untreated Australian hardwood charcoal which burns evenly and gives a good flavour.
The spits have a small, electric turning motor.
Spit measurements
Length: 1520 mm
Height: 730 mm
Width: 610 mm
Spit hire ‘with animal’
We only hire our spits ‘with animals’ which means we don’t just hire spits on their own. We can source whole pigs (10 kg
through to 35 kg), whole lambs and whole goats and we thread the carcass for you prior to delivery. All you have to do is
cook it - depending on the size of the animal you’ll need to allow at least five hours.
If the idea of roasting a whole animal (goat, pig or lamb) sounds a bit daunting and will take longer than you’ve got, there are
other options. For example, we can marinate boned lamb shoulders overnight in olive oil, lemon zest, oregano, rosemary,
thyme, garlic, salt and pepper and then thread them onto the spit. You slice the lamb off when it’s cooked and serve with a
cumin, cucumber and yoghurt dressing.
Spit delivery and set up
Most people prefer us to deliver the spit but you can pick it up from us here if you’ve got an appropriate vehicle. Otherwise,
we deliver the spit to your address and set it up so all you need to do is light the coals, or we can light it for you if you’d
prefer. We’ll provide advice on cooking times and techniques if required.
If you’d like to know more about hiring the spit and the options for what to cook, let us know and we’ll give you the low-down.

Moreton Bay South, 01/13.
* Half dozen eggs: $5.00
The Fergusson’s run 1,400 Farmer Brown chooks (stocking density 1 bird: 15 hectares)
that produce an average of about 7,000 eggs a week. Along with the insects and
vegetation in the paddocks, the chooks are fed a mix of sunflower seeds, oyster shell
grit, wheat, sorghum, mung beans and soy bean meal. They roost and lay in six solarpowered, portable trailers which are regularly moved to fresh ground once a week or so in
a dedicated, chemical-free paddock, bordered by rare remnant Box Gum woodland that
has been preserved in perpetuity through a covenant on the land.

Marrook are one of the few Australian farm house producers making their products
entirely out of milk from cows born and bred on the farm. This means that their products
have a rare integrity but it’s also a challenge when seasons are tough and during long,
cold winters. Marrook cows are classified as Aussie Red and the calves are kept with
their mothers for up to a week, and then separated and fed fresh milk and hay. All heifer
(female) calves are kept, and most bull calves are sent to the sale yards when they are a
suitable size.
PEPE SAYA CULTURED BUTTER
225 gm cultured butter rounds – salted OR unsalted
* $8.50 per round
Pepe Saya’s Australian Cultured Butter is made from Country Valley milk from Picton near
Sydney, filtered water and a dash of Australian salt.
Pasteurised cream is ripened for about two weeks before being turned into Creme Fraiche
by inoculating with a lactic culture and fermenting for 20 hours. The cultures eat the
sugars (Lactose) and carbohydrates in the cream and turn it into lactic acid (souring the
cream), which adds flavour to the butter and fills it up with probiotics. Then it’s aged for a
further three weeks before it’s churned into butter, washed and hand kneaded into pats.
It’s rich, delicious and the probiotics derived from the lactobacillus mean that it’s actually
good for you too.
PEPE SAYA GHEE MADE FROM CULTURED BUTTER
190 ml jar - for cooking
* $12.00 per jar
Ghee is made by heating cultured butter until the milk solids separate and caramelise,
giving a lovely nutty flavour and rich colour before they’re removed. It’s preferable to
vegetable oils because it’s composed almost entirely of saturated fat and has a very
high smoke point so it doesn’t burn easily. The stable saturated bonds mean it’s less
likely to form dangerous free radicals when cooking. Ghee’s short chain of fatty acids
are also metabolized very readily by the body.

GRANDVEWE SHEEP CHEESE
Birchers Bay, TAS. www.grandvewe.com.au
Blue Sapphire
A family-owned and run farm overlooking the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny
Island, 40 minutes south of Hobart. Awassi ewes form the basis of the Grandvewe
Dairysheep. Awassi are hardy, desert-bred, Middle Eastern sheep that browse and
forage and select intuitively what they need seasonally. Their genetics haven’t been
‘engineered’ to suit modern farming so they’ve retained desert-like hardiness and
they’re the fattest of fat tailed breeds, storing up to 10 kg fat in their tails for ‘lean’
fodder times.
Sheep’s milk has a range of nutritional benefits - it’s twice as high in minerals as cow’s
milk, contains high levels of mono and poly unsaturated fats and 98% of dairy intolerant
can tolerate sheep’s milk.

ORGANIC CULTURED VEGETABLES
Fermenting vegetables is an ancient practice found in most cultures and some argue that cultured vegetables - live,
enzyme-rich, nutrient-dense - are more nutritious and easily digestible than in their original form. In brief, lacto-fermented
vegetables are an ancient super food that promote healthy intestinal bacteria, aid digestion, strengthen the immune
system, help eliminate toxins and prevent balding, bunions and impotence (not really). They’re fabulously good for you.

BLACK WATTLE TANNIN-CURED HIDES
Belted Galloway hides
App 2.6 metres x 2.1 metres.
Six hides available. From $1,950.
Call or email to view the hides.
HOW THEY’RE CURED
These hides come from the 30 month-old Belted Galloway and Black Angus steers purchased by Feather and Bone
over the winter months. The 300+ kg carcasses arrived here at Marrickville where they were dry-aged, butchered and
sold to local customers. In the meantime, the skins were going through the 12 week process to become the beautiful,
vegetable-cured hides shown here.
The hides were salted at Ashrose for one week then sent to Victoria to Greenhalgh Tannery. Greenhalgh is the
only tannery in Australia to still use genuine crushed wattle bark from the Western districts of Victoria and Southern
tablelands of New South Wales for its tanning medium. The use of wattle bark for tanning was the early traditional
method used by tanneries Australia wide. Today those tanneries rely either on imported Mimosa or toxic, chemical
alternatives which produce significant environmental pollution. The generic chemical process takes a few days however
the Black Wattle tanning process is more costly and time consuming, taking eight to ten weeks.
ASHROSE FARM
Ashrose, outside Orange in NSW, is John and Kate Blackwood’s beautiful, chemical-free farm populated by one of the
largest herd of Belted Galloway cattle in NSW. In pursuit of optimum pasture welfare through rotational grazing, they’ve
built an impressive system of lanes that run between paddocks along which cattle are moved when they’re rotated
onto new pastures. It’s a canny way of turning cattle moving into a one-person job while minimising cattle stress. The
Blackwoods have embarked on the organic certification process.
Belted Galloways originated in Galloway in Scotland and are big, shaggy cattle noted for longevity, hardiness,
adaptability, high fertility, easy calving, feed conversion efficiency, docility and excellent beef qualities.
