Our Producers

Proudly partnering with Australia's best producers.

We carefully select our producers and are very particular about the supply chain ensuring a sustainable growth plan for both the animals and the environment.

We only work with farmers who put effort into both of these areas because without the natural environment, we have nothing. 

We believe the producers we select are some of the best in the country and are confident they will deliver us a superior product 52 weeks of the year. 

At Marsh Butchery we are blessed to have such support both from our wholesalers and farmers knowing we are the oldest butchery in Cairns we have forged the longest relationships with them seeing four generations of farmers come through since 1926 to now. 

It’s a true testament to the agricultural industry and we are proud to showcase our Australian farmers and producers in our shop daily.

Australian Black Wagyu

Australian black Wagyu is a globally recognised brand all over the world in high-end restaurants and premium Butcheries.

Security Foods also has a large share of the export market as well exporting their premium Wagyu to over 20 countries in the world.

The entire breeding and feeding program has been put in place to ensure the cattle have the highest chance to marble and also keep the animals' welfare in the most natural manner.

Security Foods uses Karoge Washu bred wagyu and Tajima bloodlines. Once selected as a grow-out steer the cattle then go into the feedlot for a minimum of 420 days coming out at approximately 390kg-420kg and a minimum marble score of 5.

SF Select Full-Blood Wagyu

The SF Select brand is more commonly known as full-blood Wagyu beef.

The traits of this beef are like no other, being full-blood cattle the 500 days on grain rely on help stimulate the intramuscular fat cells which then creates marbling in the beef.

The SF Select brand is a  more marble score and genetic specified product being only full strains of wagyu cattle that can make the grade and then must achieve a  minimum marble score of 7 to 9+.

This Wagyu beef has a rich and distinctive flavour that will create a butter-like film in your mouth whilst giving you the natural tender aspects of a steak that we have come to desire and expect from Wagyu.

Free-to-Forage Free Range Chicken

Lilydale chickens are handled with care right from the hatchery to the open fields of their farms.

The chickens are raised by passionate farmers under the Lilydale program that ensures animal welfare and the feeding program stays in place with a rich diet including cereals and protein meals.

In the large spread-out farms there are hay bales out to allow the chickens to use their natural instinct to walk up the wooden ramps into the huts. This allows for fun and encourages the exercise of the chickens.

There are also shade huts and trees to allow the chickens to escape from the heat, allowing the chickens to dig in soft soil and roam around searching for grubs and worms.

All this natural behaviour makes for better-flavoured chicken that is healthier for you.
