Restaurant quality meat and poultry at wholesale prices.
Are you a consumer with an appetite for farm direct premium produce?
We choose farmers that grow produce slowly and naturally – just how nature intended. We carefully curate our produce which is recognised and used by some of Queensland’s best chefs and restaurants. Our priorities are the welfare of our animals, the well-being of people and that of our environment. This means, no chemicals or unsustainable farming techniques. Humane treatment of animals and the use of organic principles are at the heart of everything we do.
Joining the Hand Sourced buyer’s group community means you can take advantage of our farm direct access. It’s the same premium range of meat, game and larder items that are available to our food service customers, and at a lower price than retail. There are three ways of accessing these goods.
Humane treatment of animals and the use of organic principles are at the heart of everything we do. Ethically bred on small farms – no chemical intervention. Grown the way nature intended.
Food Service Overflow
Our food service arm supplies ethically bred and raised rare and heritage produce for premium restaurants throughout Australia. Because we buy our animals whole, once they are broken down, there are often ‘bits’ remaining. A few spare legs of pork. A few lamb shoulders. Offal. Trotters. Livers, kidneys, feet. Whole chickens, ducks or geese. They’re in our fridge or freezer until they are gone. The only catch? You must shop seasonally – which means there might be 1, 10, or 100 of any one item. Sometimes, you’ll find them in the shop. We’ll confirm your order and you can collect from Clayfield, or we can deliver (see our delivery terms here).
To buy direct from any of our farmers, sign up here, and wait for the next available farm offer. Alternatively, you can order any open source farm co-operative products that are currently available, by simply placing an order from any of the product range listed in the shop. We’ll confirm your order and advise delivery times and dates for you to collect from Clayfield, Brisbane. Subscribe here and be notified when new farm direct items are available, or go shopping and we’ll sign you up automatically.
Herdshare (also a great fund raising idea)
You can save more on our premium, hand sourced produce by banding together and ordering a whole beast. We will butcher it to your specifications, as well as pack and organise into evenly shared portions (we’ll even organise each share and label it with names and weights), taking all the work out of it for you. Get more, pay less.
It takes as few as 4 people to make even the largest animal affordable and manageable. Simply nominate one contact person to register here. Then, let us know how many people are involved and what breed of animal you would like. That’s it!
But who would I share with?
- people at work
- people at the gym
- people in your street
- parents from school, child care or after-school sport groups
- extended family members
- facebook friends and social media contacts
When your order arrives, your nominated person will be contacted to collect from Ascot, Brisbane. Join the buyer’s Group here
