Green Connect now sells free range meat



Frequently asked questions

How big is 5kg or 10kg of pork?
A 10kg pack fits in 25 cubic centimetres – about a third of a freezer in an average household fridge-freezer.

What cuts of meat will I get?
Both packs will contain a mix of mince, sausages, bacon, pork chops, scotch fillet and spare ribs, with at least 1kg of each in the large packs, plus a bonus bag of bones in large packs only (great for making soups).

Can I choose specific cuts?
No, you’ll get a mix. A pig has only so many sections that can be made into specific cuts. We want to make sure that the whole animal is appreciated and nothing wasted so we only sell mixed packs. It also means the different cuts can be shared by our customers. To avoid any waste, we’re including a bag of bones with every 10kg pack (on top of 10kg of meat), which can be used for bone broth or soups.

Is it free-range?
Yes! Our pigs were raised on our permaculture farm in Warrawong, where they move about different areas of the farm and feast on leftover fruit, vegetables and plants, and help us cultivate the soil.

Where do I pick up from?
Following customer feedback, we have partnered with Hasties Meats to ensure a more central pick-up location than our farm.  Pick up is from:

Hasties Meats
89-91 Auburn Street

Or frozen from the Green Connect office in Port Kembla (see below).

When can I pick up my meat pack?
Thursday 29 March 2018 (3pm-6pm), or
Saturday 31 March 2018 (7am-2pm)

Alternatively we can keep it frozen at the Green Connect office in Port Kembla for you to pick up during business hours the following week.

Do I need to pre-order?

How is the meat priced?
The price is $23 per kilogram in both packs (but large packs get a bag of bones on top).
We are a not-for-profit organisation set up to provide fair food (by which we mean it is good for the people who grow it – including that they are paid at Award rates, good for the people who eat it, and good for the planet), so the price of the meat is based on what it costs us. We rely on the community to buy it, so please spread the word!
