Where…are you located? Longreach Qld

When…did you become certified? 2001

Why…did you become certified? To keep up with consumer demand, certified organic is still the most in demand section in the grocery sector. To improve the quality of health for our family and our farm.

What is your organic story? We decided to convert our sheep stations to organic status in 1999.  We became fully certified in 2001 to sell organic lambs and sheep, and organic wool.  We did this in conjunction with diversifying from a Merino enterprise to a Dorper lamb enterprise.  This worked very well and the quality lambs we were producing inspired us to set up our online business selling organic lamb packs and home delivering them to customers’ doors in South East Qld.

We began processing in Longreach a few years after we started and also hold organic certification for Longreach Agrcultural College abattoir and certified our secret recipe organic gluten free Lamb and Rosemary sausages.  We branched out again producing a cured and hot smoked leg of Lamb – LamHam which is now the sole focus for us going forward with huge export potential.

What do you love most about your business? The passion to produce quality organic products and the relationships that we build with our customers.

And….any good stories to share?

We were supplying the Office of the Governor of Queensland with our Organic Lamb and our LamHams last year and Princess Anne attended a function where our lamb was served to her.
