YES. Our burger patties are made and snap frozen. All of our other products are portioned and packed to order fresh.
Our boxes your order is delivered in can be recycled.
Vacuum sealed bags are recyclable.
Melaleuka Farm is moving towards a fully sustainable model.
Our meat is vacuum sealed which removes the oxygen from packaging and reduces the ability of bacteria to spoil the meat. This extends the shelf life of the product. When opened, you may notice the meat can be a little darker in colour and have a slight odour. Upon exposure to oxygen the meat should return to a more familiar colour and the slight odour should dissipate within 5-10 minutes.
We are not certified organic. Due to the location of our farm being on the coastal plain it’s hard for us to be organic, as we need to use mineral supplements and fertiliser for our soil.
We breed and finish all of our own cattle and we have a mix of grain and grass finished and all our cattle are free from antibiotics and hormones.
Melt beef is the Dawkins Family registered trademark referencing the low melting temperature fat which is genetically inherent in the Japanese breed Akaushi which forms the core of our herd.
Melaleuka Farm has its own marble grading system which is based on Aus-Meat and MSA marbling reference standards, it is as follows:
Melt references Aus-Meat and MSA marble score 0-2
Melt+ references Aus-Meat and MSA marble score 3-4
Melt Wagyu references Aus-Meat and MSA marble score 5+
All our produce is from our family owned and operated farm in North Dandalup, with the purpose to produce healthy beef that also provides superior flavour and eating quality.
The farm has been owned by the family since 1948 and there are currently 3 generations actively involved in farming today.
We run a true farm-to-table operation involving research, meat processing, packaging/labelling.
We currently retail to our hospitality venues and retail sale to the public with 9 pick up locations across Perth, Peel and the Great Southern regions.
We use a unique breed of Japanese cattle called Akaushi (also known as Japanese Brown or Red Wagyu) to help us improve the quality and healthiness of our beef.
This breed has a strong ability to deposit high levels of marbling with a low melting temperature of fat, which is healthier for you than traditional beef and provides superior flavour and eating quality.
The fast growth of Akaushi cattle coupled with the ability to gain healthy marbling quickly means that we are able to provide our customers with exceptional beef at a very reasonable price.
From genetics and research to breeding and growing, our cattle are treated with great care and ethically produced. Free from hormones, antibiotics and left to roam on our 5000 acres.
Yes. All products except our sausages are halal as we use natural pork casings.
Grass fed, finished on grain
Brighter red colour to the beef with whiter fat and more consistent marbling
More ‘buttery’ flavour
If you like your meat to have more marbling then you’re more likely to enjoy the flavour of Grain-fed beef.
100% grass fed
Slight yellow hue of fat
Complex, ‘beefy’ or ‘meatier flavour’
Generally more costly to produce, grazes longer, uses more water for pastures, higher labour cost to produce, requires rotation
If you like the idea of cattle raised on natural pastures, then Grass-fed is for you
