Feature Producer: Western Plains Pork

The guys in the kitchen are loving using Western Plains pork for a rotating selection of dishes. The quality is incomparable and the result delicious. But the best part is their sustainable practice.

Located in the cool, temperate grassland plains of Western Victoria, 150 kilometres west of Melbourne between Ballarat and Geelong, Western Plains pigs live in an outdoor bred environment. The sows live outside in small paddocks with ample shelter, water and wallows. They give birth in insulated huts and the piglets are weaned into special strawbased huts “eco shelters”.

Western Plains Pork is produced completely free of artifical growth agents or stimulants. All stock is fed a diet comprising wheat and barley naturally grown in the immediate area. This scientifically balanced regime is designed to maintain the amimals in excellent health and condition.

Western Plains Pork is fully accredited by the Australian Pork Industry Quality Program and in many areas even exceeds the already high standards set by that body. Indeed, in Australia approximately 5% only of pigs produced are bred outdoors.
