Where to buy wholesale meat or even half a pig in Canberra?

By treeroo - 23 May 2015 7

Hi guys,

This might sound weird, but I have been looking into ways to buy half a pig or lots of uncut meat at wholesale price but found nothing so far. Most butchers will sell for higher price than the big two supermarkets.

Is there any abattoir or farm in Canberra or nearby that will sell uncut meat at discounted price directly to the public?

 

What’s Your opinion?

?Hi treeroo,

There is a butcher in Dickson who has there on farm on the outskirts of canberra.

We use to go there when I lived in Watson and even though we have moved to Bonner now we still visit them. They are around the service station .

http://www.lostriverproduce.com.au will have more info about it.

Just speak to the staff and I am sure they will sort you out or possibly point you in the right direction.

My 2 cents.

Thank you

Lost Valley Produce in Dickson are fantastic for whole carcasses.

otherwise, any good butcher, including the other excellent dickson butchery, will source you the meat you want – that’s what butchers do…

Very true and I should be clearer in my communication.

I was more recommending them on the combination of the quality of their meat, the cost per kilo and their customer service rather than the ability to supply a particular product.

I get all our pork from Jordo’s. They have free range pork, I won’t support factory pig farms.
Prices are on their website.

Try Jardin Freshlife in Tuggeranon, or The Food Forum at Belconnen Westfield. They supply industry (hospitality) as well, so you might be able to find your specified cuts…

Try Solly’sBulk Meat ( http://www.bulkmeat.com.au ). They had a stand at the Canberra Show this year and we were really impressed with what they had on offer. In the end we decided not to follow through with purchasing through them as our freezer is not large enough to store this much meat at one time. I think they can provide pork as well – just ask them about this aspect. We have been having good success with Lachlan Valley Meats in Fyshwick. I have read that other Rioters haven’t been that impressed with them but we have been. We can taste the difference in the flavour of the meats compared to the big grocery chains and find it a pleasant change. I recently put in an order for a brisket (pot roast) and was satisfied with both the service and the meat. They even offer half sides of lamb in their shopfront (they were $8.99 a kilo last week). You can’t find those at the grocery chains anymore. Please keep us up to date with what you find and your review of the service and meats.
