Cape Grim Beef Farmers

We are very proud of the select group of farmers that supply us with the cattle used for Cape Grim Beef.

It is a key group of close to 1800 beef farmers, based in Tasmania, King Island and Flinders Island. They are required to meet stringent quality and processing standards set by Meat Standards Australia. These farmers sometimes buy young cattle from the mainland and finish them on the state's lush pastures but ALL Cape Grim Beef cattle are finished in Tasmania.

Producers are selected on cattle breeding and genetic pointers which deliver the most consistent of eating quality. Their farms are located in the highest rainfall areas of Tasmania, delivering the highest and most consistent fodder growth available.

The group aims to maintain the integrity of old grass fed production techniques while taking advantage of technology that allows tracing of every carton of Cape Grim beef back to the farmer who produced it. You can drive all around Tasmania and see Cape Grim signs on farm gates – a reflection of the pride that producers have in supplying a superior brand.

 Farmer Feeding

The use of hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and antibiotics are not permitted in Tasmanian beef farming. Producers readily understand that consumers can instantly connect with Cape Grim’s remote location, sustainable farming practices and ideal grazing conditions, enhancing Tasmania’s reputation as a world leader in successful local food systems.

Our farmers have known for decades that their grass fed beef is special, but now they participate in the network from producer to processor to chef to diner. 

We are very pleased that we can provide this high quality, tender beef to discerning global consumers - it will change the way people think about the beef they eat and where it comes from.
