Our Pork Farmer Chrissy - Sustainable and ethical farming

Our wonderful certified organic pig farmers believe that pigs should be raised naturally, in the open air, with love and care. Their pigs’ happiness and welfare is their top priority. We 100% share these values.

Jointly we advocate for the humane treatment of animals. It’s a whole-of-farm accreditation that guarantees the food you eat has been raised in an animal-welfare friendly, sustainable, pasture-based system. Under certification, all animals must be pasture raised for their entire lives. This is NOT the same as ‘bred free-range’ where piglets are born outdoors but moved indoors once weaned.

They see their farm as part of the broader ecosystem and work hard to protect and nurture the surrounding land and waterways. Vegetated buffers purify water runoff from paddocks before it reaches the creeks and keep the farm cool and shaded. Manure and other pig by-products, containing valuable plant nutrients and carbon, are turned into organic fertiliser to regrow pastures. They also rotate their paddocks so the land gets time to regenerate naturally.

The boutique, pasture-grazing farm is located at Kandanga Creek in the beautiful Mary Valley, part of the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

It’s a true, free-range operation. The pigs spend their days in the sunshine, wallowing in mud and foraging for grasses, weeds and roots in large, open paddocks. It’s stress-free bliss.

The piglets are born in the open air and kept with their mothers as long as possible, giving them the best start to life. They grow together outdoors in family groups with ample water, weather-proof sheds and plenty of natural shade. They provide healthy, free-range, organic pork for people who care about what they eat.
Our pigs eat only the best feed which gives our pork superior texture and flavour. Home-grown crops of seasonal vegetables as well as a variety of seasonal fruit and nuts are supplemented with certified organic grain. Being dedicated to planet-friendly farming means they don’t use any chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides or artificial fertilizers, anywhere on the farm.

Our pigs aren’t selected for their growing speed; they’re prized for their flavour.
Our main breed is the slow-growing English Large Black, the Wagyu of the pork world. Highly sought after by restaurateurs and gourmets for its exceptional taste, the breed was imported from the United Kingdom in the early 1900s, and remains rare in Australia. Like Wagyu beef, meat from a Large Black is slightly marbled, making every cut moist and meltingly tender. It’s sweet and packed with flavour. You’ll never forget the taste of bacon and pancetta made from a Large Black belly!
Large Blacks love to graze, making them ideal for free-range farms. They’re good-natured, intelligent and hardy, and make excellent mothers. Their black skin also protects them from the hot Queensland sun.
They keep our herd numbers small—less than half the recommended number of pigs to each hectare—giving each pig maximum space to roam and explore.
