The Otways are blessed by a temperate climate, reliable year-round rainfall and fertile soils.
Our objective is to deliver a genuinely superior product that is clean and healthy. Our farm is located in a beautiful sheltered valley, backing onto the Great Otway National Park. One quarter of our land is given over to natural forest and revegetated shelter belt, which is beneficial on many levels including cattle and wildlife welfare, water quality and environmental sustainability.
Otway Prime livestock is strictly free ranged and grass fed, with all hay and silage harvested from our own land. Grass fed animals produce leaner, healthier and more flavoursome meat when compared to grain fed beef and lamb. This is without compromising on tenderness.
Otway Prime beef and lamb is produced with reference to Meat Standards Australia guidelines to minimise stress and guarantee meat quality. Our animals are always treated in an ethical and humane manner both on farm, but equally importantly, once they leave the farm. We do not consign animals to bulk transporters, saleyards or other handlers where they can be mixed, roughly handled and exposed to high levels of stress.
Important to ultimate eating quality, Otway Prime beef and lamb is dry aged on the bone for maximum flavour and tenderness.
We offer a range of bulk beef packs that can be customised to our customers likes and needs. These are outlined on the Where to Buy page of this website. Our popular 15kg pack, represents about one-eighth of a beast and incorporates most of the cuts available.
Our bulk lamb packs comprise whole or half lambs and we also do a slow-cooking pack. A broad range of cuts are presented, ensuring our customers receive an interesting and diversified product selection, that lends itself to a variety of cooking styles and techniques.
We are happy to customise a bulk pack comprising both our beef and lamb, so please contact us directly.
At all times, our customers only pay for trimmed premium lean meat, packed in meal-sized portions.
