With an assortment of our craft beef, heritage pork and pasture-raised chicken meal prep hasn't been this easy and tasty until now.
The west coast of Tasmania is one of the best grass-growing regions in the world. All along the western coast are rugged mountains, wild forest, and inhospitable land — with the exception of the northwest coast, home to Westmore Pastoral.
The rare combination of a temperate climate and frequent rainfall means the Westmore herd always has fresh paddocks of lush perennial grasses perfect for year-round grazing. Owned by the Greenham family, Westmore Pastoral stretches over 8,500 acres of Tasmanian paradise just outside Marrawah.
The idea for Autumn’s Harvest Farm was born in 2001 when Tim and Sarah Haws went on their first date.
“It was on our first or second date, and Sarah was telling me how she always wanted to hatch chickens,” Tim explains. “She told me how she used to take eggs out of her family’s refrigerator and put them in a drawer.”
As an amateur chef, Matthew Lawrence quickly learned that the quality of meat used in a meal has a huge impact on the final product. As he catered local weddings and competitions, he struggled to find local and sustainable meat from farmers nearby. To improve his craft and provide a better alternative to grocery store meats, Matthew and his wife Jesie decided to create what they were searching for by starting their own sustainable multi-species pasture farm in Sylacauga, Alabama. After all, as Matthew says, nature is where all the activity happens.
If starting their own farm wasn’t ambitious enough, Matthew and Jesie also built their own USDA inspected processing facility to service both their farm and other local farmers. Providing a local processor for the community results in better meats for everyone.
Clark Family Farms’ Chicken
Clark Family Farms’ Chicken First-generation farmer Todd Clark wanted “to do something [he’s] proud of: raise high-quality, nutrient-dense food.” At Clark Family Farms, he rotates his chickens in 'chicken tractors' daily, following the rotations of sheep and cattle. What results from the Kentucky bluegrass fields, limestone-filtered water, and close care Todd takes is chicken with such concentrated flavor you’ll feel like you’re sitting down to a farm dinner in the hills outside Lexington.
Keep up the good work fellas because you have ruined me forever now for buying the best beef I've eaten in two decades. I won't ever buy in the grocery store again.
