Paddock to Plate
We care about how our animals are raised, the environment they live in, the feed that they're eating, the way they live and how they've been treated.
The Indigo paddock to plate philosophy means we care about how our animals are raised, the environment they live in, the feed that they're eating, the way they live and how they've been treated.
We look after them in their life and in their death they look after us, providing superb meat for our customers. Our strong focus on ethically produced lamb and pork means we deliver the highest quality product we can.
With low stocking rates, we paddock raise our flock of Dorper sheep which roam free grazing at their leisure. Our vineyard manager Dan Abotomey says “The flock started as an eco way to keep the grass down in the vineyard and put fertiliser back into the soil. Now they are an important part of our Farm business . . . We like to think that we’re showing our animals respect”. Our Berkshire pigs free range over their 20 acre paddock, fed on forage and a premium grain diet.
“We don’t push the animals or feed lot, they get to the right size and weight at a natural rate.” Dan believes “This means a stress free transition from the paddock and superb eating quality and taste.”
We personally deliver to our local, licensed abattoirs when they are just right. A licensed local butcher bones and prepares cryovac meal sized packs.
Indigo lamb and pork is available at our cellar door and local delivery can be arranged (up to 30km from the farm in Everton Upper).
