On the Coffs Coast...

    A great source of reasonably priced pork, beef and lamb from “soy-free animals allowed to graze” is Midway Meat. The farm is located near Glen Innes but they have a stall at the Coffs Growers markets every Thursday morning (see details below).

    Grass fed, beef, and pork from Macksville’s “Meat on the Move” is also available for sale at the Coffs Growers Market, and grass fed beef can be purchased from Hillside Meats at the Harbourside Markets on a Sunday.

    Dorrigo Grass-fed Beef is also a fine source of “Best” meat which you can buy from the Bellingen Growers Markets, or online via their website. Mayfield Farm Produce is situated on the edge of the Dorrigo Plateau, create exceptional Pork and Beef, and is available from Vally Quality Meats – Bellingen and Ward’s Butchery – Dorrigo otherwise order direct over the phone. Tullebudgery Veal meats are available from Kombu, Bellingen.

    Midway Meats, Mayfield Farm Produce and Dorrigo Grass-fed Beef products are all Grass Fed and more importantly Grass Finished. For further reading on why you should only eat grass-fed meats, check out this article – Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Products.

    Some good local butchers sell grass-fed meats, but you’ll need to confirm that they are Grass Finished. Eg. Bellingen Butchery, Valley Quality Meats, Bellingen, Bellingen Butchery, Bellingen, Russell’s Prime Quality Meats, Park Beach Plaza.
