Starting Fresh

It’s been a while but we have been busy working on many things and one of those is joining with a home delivery company with out lambs. It is a big step for two small companies to join together, to work together with the one goal: providing fresh, superb quality foods to many who are time poor, do not wish to shop in a supermarket and want to support the local grower / primary producer and small business.

We have met and talked and agreed we need to give it a ‘red hot go’ as they say in Australia. We will supply them with grass-fed fresh lamb, advertise and move it out. It’s a win win for South Australians, you can go on-line to http://www.firstfroots.com.au order your fresh fruit and vegetables and from next month lamb. we will be doing joint press releases and advertising so that you know when we will be on their shelves (in the cool room) and be delivered fresh, cold freezer or meal ready to your door.

With First Froots there is NO joining free, enter your postcode check your home delivery status then register login, see their extensive menu, check out the price list – no hidden costs here, order what you want, select payment and then enter. delivered fresh to your door, we have tasted a fine selection of fruit and vegetables and after 1 week, we had to throw NOTHING OUT, it is fresh not stored in warehouses till it’s needed. The taste and quality are that of a farmers market, we highly recommend the service, if they delivered to Keith we would be using them exclusively. When you join tell them via Bully Beef and other meats blog.

 

 

 

buying fresh meat

At this time of year Christmas and holidays, food takes centre place in many social gatherings, family get together and work place meetings. Most societies celebrate, mourn, rejoice and relax whilst sharing food. Food is seen as a sign of acceptance and a sign of hospitality, in olden times you would be offered a meal as you may have travelled for days, the weather and distance would play a part in what you were going to receive as a guest into some bodies home.

Beef is a staple in Australia, “it is the second most popular fresh meat consumed through the food service industry (after chicken)”(1)

“Australians eat an average 33kg of beef and veal per person, per year. This has remained relatively constant for the last 15 years.” (2)

Make sure when you purchase your meat it is as fresh as possible, you are more likely to get fresher meat from a local butcher, farmers market or ordering direct from farmers you know than from super markets. No place will sell ‘bad’ meat let me make that clear but those listed above will be fresher and you will notice a completely different taste to anything you purchase in the supermarket. When meat is packaged there is an absorption pillow under packaged meat and the longer the meat has sat on the pad the more it has absorbed and the ‘older’ the meat is. If there is juice in package the fresher the meat, but it is like anything else if you open it and it smells off, it is likely to be off, do not eat ‘turning meat’ return it immediately to the place of purchase in Australia, they will refund you and notify their supplier immediately. It is better they know than not for other consumers may have also bought something that is not right.
