Our grain fed saltbush hoggets are fed on a mixture of grain, grass, hay and saltbush, which gives a delicious, well rounded flavour. Hogget, being slightly older than lamb, has more taste, more depth of flavour and is just as tender as lamb.
Stags and Rams (males with either one testicle or two, respectively) are not typically sold in your local butcher, but there are many who prefer stags and rams for making dishes such as curries and stir fries. We ensure that our stags and rams are non-working and kept separate from our ewes. Poor things…but at least they get to hang out with their mates! Yeah the boys!
Our hoggets dress at a minimum of 24kg, but typically dress at 27-28kg, so expect a lot of meat in this pack! Unfortunately, we do not currently deliver but all of our meat boxes can be picked up from our local butcher located in Port Pirie, TJ’s Butcher.
This pack can be cut up however you prefer, but most tend to either get it diced or minced.
