Southern Victorian and Tasmania

Bass Strait is the ferocious stretch of ocean that separates mainland Australia from Tasmania. It is this wild stretch of sea that lends the term “Roaring Forties”.

And within these Roaring Forties are some of the most famous and legendary lamb producing regions in the world.

The cleanest air in the world blows over the pastures here. The lush grass grows year round.

They nourish British and European breed lambs, renowned for the delicate and special flavour of their meat.

This is Lamb Like No Other.

Cape Grim is quintessential Tasmania. Located on the far northwestern tip of the island, it serves as the figurative mast-head for the incredible beef packed under the brand that bears its special name.

A network of dedicated farmers from Tasmania, King and Flinders Island supply British bred cattle grown on some of the best pastures in the world.

Single Origin Family Farm

Fourth generation cattle farmers John, Keith, Alex and Chauncey Hammond have been breeding wagyu on Robbins Island since the early 1990’s.

During the iconic seasonal musters, bands of horsemen swim the cattle through saltwater channels at low tide to move them peacefully between grazing areas.

Situated on the north western tip of Tasmania, the island has a temperate climate, clean air and a pristine coastal environment.

It is without doubt one of the truly iconic farming stories – and we are so fortunate to have it right on our front doorstep.

A natural star in wagyu.

Showcasing the silky, buttery notes of wagyu with the clean finish of grass, this unique brand represents the pinnacle of grass fed beef, anywhere in the world.

F1 Wagyu cattle are finished on 100% grass in southern Victoria and Tasmania. These cattle never see a feedlot, nor an ounce of grain.

This program challenges the traditional model of raising wagyu – and showing the industry that a grass finished wagyu product can be every bit as astoundingly good as the current grain fed model.

Australia's First Carbon Neutral Beef Brand

Five Founders Beef is Australia’s FIRST completely carbon neutral certified beef.

It’s from the North Australian Pastoral Co (NAPCO). NAPCO was started by five founding farmers in 1877.

Five Founders cattle spend their whole of life in the care of NAP. Born and raised on NAP properties, Five Founders cattle grow up grazing our pristine pastures, managed and protected through 140 years of sustainable farming.

We are always keen to help farmers and farming families launch their own brands and tell their story – and Five Founders has a wonderful family story of true farming pioneers behind it.

We don’t think we’ve met a more passionate farmer than Rob Nichols.

Rob’s farm is in Sassafras in NW Tasmania. Birds are raised in small flocks, and are free to graze on outdoor pasture and forage for 24 hours per day.

Flock sizes of 1,000 birds vs 50,000 for the big guys.

Mobile sheds that move around the paddocks to keep the chickens in fresh pasture and soil. The birds are free to exhibit their natural behaviours, like foraging for bugs, digging and exploring, in the sunlight.

Rob’s chickens grow more intramuscular fat, and he allows them to grow out more slowly and for longer, their daily exercise building a deep flavour and colour within the flesh.

Bass Strait and its coastlines fall at the latitude where drenching rain, warming sun and saltwater winds combine to create climatic perfection for growing tender grass-fed beef.

The cattle are peacefully raised on natural rye grasses and clover without the need of antibiotics or hormone growth promotants.

The taste – As clean as the winds of Bass Strait.

They are farmed in a stress free environment, and have the freedom to truffle, play and wallow in the mud, and feed at will.

We could tell that the farmers loved their animals.

In every blind taste test we conducted, we found that St Bernards came up on top.
