Delivery

We currently deliver to NSW, ACT, QLD and VIC. Having said that we don’t deliver to some postcodes. That’s why you are prompted to put your postcode in before selecting items. 

Local deliver - Northern beaches local from Palm Beach to Manly is $10.

Sydney $20 / ACT $45 / Brisbane $30 / Byron and Ballina $55 / Gold Coast $35 / Sunshine Coast $35 / Toowoomba $35 / Victoria $30.

A smart way of reducing the delivery fee is to find a buddy who also wants a box and get them both delivered to the one address then split the delivery fee.

We deliver weekly to all areas. Sydney city and northern beaches everyday. However depending on when you order in the week it may not get to you within the same week. Once you place an order we get notified on our end. We use a third party delivery service who delivers to certain areas on certain days. 

You will receive an email or text from us once your box has left our warehouse and this will advise you on ETA. You will also receive a notification from the delivery company once it has been dropped off.

We will do everything we can on our end to ensure you are aware of when your box is being delivered. Before delivery, if you have provided a number, you will receive a text, if you have provided an email you will receive an email, and our third party delivery service will send you a text once it has landed on your doorstep. They will most likely NOT knock, so please check your phone for comms the day of your delivery. 

If they are unable to get to your door for whatever reason (a guard dog for example) they will not leave the box on the street and will try again at another date.

Due to the above, we can only do as much as we can do on our end, and will not refund boxes that have been spoiled due to being left unchecked all day. It is your responsibility to ensure someone is home on the day of delivery. If this seems too hard, we understand and advise not placing an order. We hate disappointing people and the delivery system doesn't work for everyone. 

Keep in mind, your meat is delivered frozen so you do have some time up your sleeve once it lands on your doorstep. 

There's a QR code on every box. Scan that with your smart phone and you will get access to the free e-cookbook, the cuts menu and all of scott's cooking videos.

Ordering

We have decided it is in everyone's best interest to receive the meat frozen to extend the life and freshness. This does not effect the quality of meat. Just make sure you take it out of the freezer in good time to cook it. You always want to cook your meat at room temperature to make sure it stays tender. 

Condiments and all other food items are delivered chilled. Tableware is sent separately via Australia Post. 

Once you thaw it out it will be fine in your fridge for at least 5 days. Generally rule of thumb is pretty much common sense - if you open it and it smells funky you've probably left it too long.

Sure do! Check out the Weird and Wonderful category on the shop.

Yes. We have a build your box category where you can select your preferred cuts if we have them in stock. If you want to be extra specific, please leave a note on your order.

Yep! You can subscribe to all the meat boxes that allow subscriptions. We offer weekly, fortnightly and monthly reoccurring orders. Each option comes with a discount. 

The photo is just an indication of some cuts, not all. You will also never get all of the cuts in one box simply because of our nose to tail philosophy. We buy whole animals, we don't buy individual cuts as most butcher do, which means our nose to tail boxes need to include a range of cuts. You might get T-Bones in your box one month and rib-eyes the next. There simply isn’t enough of every cut to go around. Having said that, if you have been ordering from us for several months and haven’t received a specific prime cut ever, simply shoot us an email, or make a note on your order, and we will absolutely make sure you get some next time.

Land and animal care

In a nutshell regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that seeks to rehabilitate and enhance the entire ecosystem of the farm by placing a heavy premium on soil health with attention also paid to water management, fertilizer use, and more. It is a method of farming that improves the resources it uses, rather than destroying or depleting them. In addition to a long list of incredible benefits for farmers and their crops, regenerative agriculture practices help us fight the climate crisis by pulling carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the ground.

Some Regen principals include:

Promoting biodiversity. Cover crops and crop rotation are two of basic principles of regen agriculture that lead to greater biodiversity. Eliminating or decreasing tillage. Reducing or eliminating the use of artificial fertilizers.Use regenerative grazing management for livestock.

No. Organic is about having no chemicals or pesticides on the land or crops. Whereas, Regen usually involves livestock and is more about the regeneration of the land through the management of livestock and farming practises. Which by default means minimal (if any) chemical, fertilisers, or herbicides.

100%. Our cows spend their entire life on the farms, eating grass, and getting lots of Vit D from the sun. They will only ever eat grain if there is grass shortage due to drought, and only to supplement their diet so they get the nourishment they need. They don't spend a day in feedlots.

Other animals like pigs and chickens do require more than grass in their diets and are fed a combination of grass, grain and organic feeds. Always free-range. No feedlots. Ever.

Yes! Our farmers care about their animals and make sure they have a very nice life right up until the moment they get killed. Sorry - but here's no avoiding that part. They roam freely over beautiful pastures, eat lush green grass and live pretty much stress-free. Some people will say you can’t love animals if you eat them, but we don’t agree. Cows bred and grown this way are so much better off then cows in feedlots so the more people who support this way of farming, the less cows there in industrial-farmed feedlot situations, which is a horrible way for any sentient being to live.

About our farms

We source our animal produce from seven different small family-run farms across NSW. Each of those farms are committed to regenerating the land and have a high ethical standard for their animals. We know each of them personally and are proud to have them part of The Good Farm Shop.

"Eastbourne Farm" is our family farm located 5 hours north of Sydney, inland of a town called Macksville. Mum is the fearless (and less experienced) farmer. She is responsible for mostly annoying our actual farmer, Mick. My parents have owned the property for close to 40 years now. For the last five years (at least) they have been committed to following best farming practice, regenerating the land, and last year the farm became certified Land to Market.

When the cows there aren’t ready, we source from Two Creeks regen farm - located on the lush river flats of the magnificent Dooralong valley on the Central Coast, NSW. Both farms are completely committed to regenerating the land and soil.

Gregory Downs Organics is a family owned and run Certified Organic farm north of Young in the Hilltops region of the New South Wales. They predominantly run organic cattle and pigs but also run a few sheep an alpaca, chickens and some horses as well! ​Their focus is on the health and welfare of the animals, their community and on the regeneration of the land including increasing biodiversity of native plants and animals on the farm. They are currently part of a study with the Australian National University on increasing biodiversity of plants and animals whilst grazing livestock in a holistic natural grazing system.

About the farmers: Clinton grew up in the Northern Territory on a cattle station so has worked with cattle his entire life. Since moving down south onto a smaller property he loves being able to work more closely with the cattle and knows each animal on the farm! Pip is a Naturopath and Nutritionist.

Clarendon Farm has been in operation for over 20 years and are located in Gulgong (near Mudgee), occupying 300 acres. The hens are housed in small colonies inside portable nesting and roosting houses. They leave at daybreak to eat the protein-enriched grains and pasture before returning to lay their eggs and roost at night. The houses are routinely towed across the land to allow the pasture to regenerate. The hens are never confined and are protected from predators by electric fencing and 8 flock guardian dogs. The dogs are Mareemas, a breed used by Roman shepherds and first described in text around 2000 BC. Stocking densities are below the preferred free range standard of 1500 birds per hectare. They do not beak trim their birds as we believe it is harmful and they have so much space there has never been an argument for it. They do not use hormones, antibiotics, synthetic or chemical feed additives, artificial pesticides or herbicides for the same reasons. The eggs are collected 5 times a day to ensure freshness and maintain cleanliness. They are strictly checked and handled to appropriate health standards before being graded and packaged.

Tathra Place is a free-range regenerative multi-species farm in Wombeyan Caves with farmer Luke Winder at the helm. Luke is such an inspiring young man flagging the regen flag high and proud. All his animals are chemical free pasture raised, grass fed and finished and treated with the highest ethical standard. We are so proud to be stocking his lamb, quail and Speckle park beef. He is the real deal when it comes to regenerative multi-species farming. All his hard work pays off not just for the environment, but in the quality and taste of the meat. 

Two Creeks is located on the lush river flats of the magnificent dooralong valley on the Central Coast, NSW. Located down the end of a quiet dirt lane nestled between Jilliby Creek and Wyong Creek, Angus cattle roam freely over beautiful pastures. With a large amount of biodiversity both above and below the soil, it makes it a perfect habitat for many native plants and animals. Daniel, the head farmer at Two Creeks, is committed to protecting and improving the ecosystem by regenerating land and increasing biodiversity. It results in great tasting, carbon neutral certified, Angus beef.

Kanooka Creek Farm is owned and run by Charlie and Sacha. They have had Kanooka Creek Farm since 2016, and live with their two children, 3 dogs, 1 goat, guinea pigs, guinea fowl, dairy breed cows, a bull, pigs, egg laying chickens and  meat chickens. The property, situated in the Pappinbarra Valley, is 45 mins drive from Port Macquarie, via the rural township of Wauchope. Their interests in creative living and organic regenerative practices have been consolidating for over a period of 30 years. Sacha uses a Joel Salatin method of chicken tractor farming, using movable pens that open for the chickens to come in and out. this method also help to naturally fertilise the soil and regenerating the land. The chickens are fed organic feed and not bleached during processing. For more information you can check out their website.
