Green Pastures Square Meater Stud Farm

The Southern Highlands Home of Square Meater Cattle

NellyNELLY: I'm a bit of a ring-in, not belonging to Green Pastures Farm but living on a nearby horse property. What has brought me into this blog is a visit to my place yesterday by a smartly uniformed Collin, arriving with a colleague in a big red truck labelled "Exeter Rural Fire Brigade."
On one of the hottest days so far this year - over 40C in some places - they were inspecting one of the dams as a possible source of water if we get a bushfire hereabouts. So while they were walking acroHeadsUpRED6ss my paddock I crept up behind them and gave Collin a nudge in the back.  

He got a bit of a shock, but recovered quickly enough and tried to get me interested in joining his band of volunteer firefighters!  I thought maybe the heat had got to him, but evidently they originally had horses to pull the water tanker. Nowadays, of course, that's the job of the big red truck.

I heard later that Collin was the auctioneer at a fund-raising dinner at Exeter's Studio Restaurant, managing to bank over $2,000 for brigade equipment as well as he and Fran having a good time and some exceptional food! Which reminds me ... it's time to get my head in a nose bag.



We'll soon be taking orders for our next meat deliveries.

Those who bought any of our meat packs last time around will be advised directly of what will be available and dates for pick-up or delivery.

New customers are welcome! Information on meat pack options will be forwarded on request to

As last time, all processing will be closely supervised in line with our view that animals we breed for food need to be treated with respect, and subject to minimal stress.

Certainly, the latest steers being grown for our family, friends and neighbours have been enjoying a relaxed lifestyle, with plenty of sunshine, feed and water aplenty.
