Order A Meat Pack

17 October 2018 Please Note: due to the prolonged lack of rain, we are only able to provide lamb products at this time. Buy your Grass Fed Beef and Lamb direct from the producer in our beef, lamb or combination packs. Exceptional eating and great value. We deliver throughout Australia, refrigerated to your door!  

Grass Fed Beef and Lamb

Running of cattle and sheep together has given us a powerful ecological tool for repair and rehabilitation of our pastures. The ‘Herd Effect’ and ‘Animal Impact’ are tools that we have used through our grazing system to repair and restore problem areas, increasing total yield. This allows us to grow all of our meat the way nature intended – from grass.

Ecological Farming Systems

Gilgai Farm’s ecological farming system promotes an increase in biodiversity to build a resilient ecosystem able to withstand fluctuations in temperatures, rainfall patterns and climate variability while producing healthy and nutritious, quality foods.

Biological Farming

By restoring a chain of ponds system and wetland areas we are rehydrating our landscape to recreate the naturally fertile conditions of the land prior to European settlement. Compost teas are restoring our soil microbial activity which has produced astounding results.

We will be looking at the Observant Remote monitoring system in action and a general look around the farms at the paddocks and livestock and our farming system.

There will be plenty of experts around on the day to help you with any queries eg cost benefits, installations, applications, what can be monitored etc.

Whats Happening on The Farms

Mum and Dad are in the midst of moving into Dubbo after 8 years at ‘Cooee’. They have both been a tremendous help over the years with fencing, tree planting, compost making and helping to identify grass species. I think they are looking forward to downsizing and being closer to all the facilities.

We are hosting two Vet Students from the University of Sydney who are coming to spend a week with us in February.

The initial enquiry was It would be really great to be able to do our practical experience at Gilgai because most of what we learn about is grain-fed cattle (as this is the ‘norm’), so getting a fresh perspective would be very eye opening for us! Hopefully we will be able to impart some of our passion for our system of farming, as well as the health benefits of this system to our livestock and also the end product,  namely grass fed red meat.

Luke and Karissa are well and the twins have started school this year. Dwight had his 3rd birthday in January and the twins have just celebrated their 5th on the 3rd of February.
