Matilda’s Natural Australian Lamb is sourced from ranchers in Southern Australia dedicated to high standards of animal welfare and sustainable ranching systems, Matilda’s Lambs are raised on open pastures in an unspoiled environment. Our lamb is graded at the processing facility to ensure only the very best are selected, the cuts are then vacuum sealed for freshness and shipped to you as a chilled product (never frozen), allowing the product to age naturally. Matilda’s Natural Australian Lamb is available in a full range of well-trimmed cuts suitable for retail and food service outlets.
Matilda’s Natural Australian Lamb is produced in Southern Australia and is a pasture raised product; our sheep are grazed in open pastures and grasslands (paddocks) for their entire life. This means our lambs receive the substantial percentage of their feed and nutrients from open pastures.
It is not industry practice to use antibiotics in lamb production in Australia unless a lamb is showing signs of illness. Lambs that have been treated with antibiotics because of illness are excluded from the Matildas Natural Australian Lamb program.
Matilda’s Natural Australian Lamb does not contain artificial ingredients or additives; all products have been minimally processed.
