A pioneer in a delicious cohort.
This little Wagyu, grass-fed and serene
Raised by a farmer whose philosophy was keen
On finishing on grass, a carbon-efficient way
Best steak competitions won, a prize to display
Direct from farm to plate was his fate
No abattoir or distribution, a unique state
A mobile abattoir came to his farm
And with skilled hands, he met no harm
Cut and shaped by a caring butcher's hand
He was placed on plates across Auckland
Generations of his family from Japan came before
Michael, a colonel, led a better way to adore
No synthetic fertilisers on his land, he commanded
He knew we must give back more than we demanded
A stand for farm to fork, for a better future to support
This little Wagyu, a pioneer in a delicious cohort.
When can I expect delivery?
Processing resumes in early 2024. Join the forward order list now, and you will be notified when the next animal is ready for delivery.
What cuts are available?
Everything from the nose to the tail, curated into a selection of boxes. Enough for a couple, a family or a community. Food service options are available too. Get in early to get the cuts you want.
Can I get it elsewhere?
Selected restaurants and butchers have access to Earth First meat. Ask your locals.
Why hasn't this been available before?
Current regulations prohibit "home killed" meat being sold. But, an innovative approach to mobile abattoirs enable them to be licensed, and therefore supply meat direct to market. Change starts with a choice.
