It goes without saying that we think our products are top notch - we wouldn't sell them if they weren't! So we can tell you how wonderful they are, but we think it's best that you hear it from our customers...
Once again the Free Range Butcher have sourced excellent birds for our Christmas tables (one for Christmas Eve and another for Christmas Day), which meant we had lots of yummy leftovers.
We took the plunge this year and used the suggested brining method for extra moistness - what a winner! Even had a container and fridge space so we didn't need to worry about topping up with ice.
Had to leave the basting on both occasions in the charge of husband and sons, they are the champions. They even decided to use some husband-made apricot jam for a last minute glaze, super golden skin was the result - an absolute winner on the table. Have also given up carving before hand and just carve at the table onto people's plates, too easy.
Looking forward to another Easter Sunday turkey, makes it another special family celebration.
Thanks again to the team for working so hard for us all every Christmas and throughout the year.

Our Christmas Ham was our best ever and we've had your hams for quite a few years now.
Sophie, home delivery customer
Yet again Ben, Alison and the team have delivered not only the best ham on the planet, but also a superb shopping experience. Keep up the great work guys.

Delicious Turkey delivered as promised. Well packed. Excellent quality. Excellent flavour.
We have had the Pasture Fed free range ham for a couple of years now. This year I splurged on a whole ham. When it arrived I had qualms, fearing that it was too large. Need not have worried. On Christmas Day we carved a huge plateful which disappeared in seconds. They all loved it - with good reason. It was full of flavour, with a wonderful texture and looked good. As my daughter carved it she said "This must have been a very happy pig"
We are still eating it and still enjoying it..

A large bird (nearly 6kgs). On Christmas morning stuffed with homemade force met stuffing the chestnut stuffing. Used Delia Smith's method, wrapping the bird in foil until 30 minutes before end of cooking time, then allowing 30 minutes to rest. A succulent bird, with moist flesh it fed 15 people so well that the anticipated left overs were very modest. What is now left will be turned into stock. These are the tastiest and best turkeys we have ever had and leave the frozen supermarket product for dead.
This is our second year of purchasing a Ham from the free range butcher and we were not disappointed.
So easy to order on line, delivered to the door in a well insulated foam box. The ham was succulent and moist.
Will be ordering again

This was absolutely the tastiest ham we have ever had for Christmas. I cooked it using a Donnay Hay recipe I saw on her TV show.
It was easily the easiest and tastiest ham we've ever had.
Stellina, home delivery customer
I've bought these hams for two years in a row at Christmas and will continue to do so. Beautifully moist, tasty and smoky. In my opinion, it's absolutely worth spending the money on a high-quality ham from a happy pig. It went a long way in terms of the meat feeding people and nothing went to waste - the ham-bone made some delicious stock, and the skin lends a lovely smoky flavour to stews or home-made baked beans.

My family couldn't be happier with the quality of meat and the service you provide. Everything we've tried was just above and beyond!
It's so wonderful to have a local business that delivers you the best quality products you can imagine. Personally I'm very happy as a mum that I've found healthy sausages for my little one to eat.
Thank you so much for your great work and please keep it up!
Jenny, home delivery customer
I follow a Paleo diet and had been checking various options/butchers for grass fed beef and pastured meat.
I met Ben at the Farmers Markets and asked him a number of questions related to the quality of the produce. His answers fit in with my requirements. I was glad to find a butcher selling the meat I required and that I could buy at the Farmers Markets or via The Free Range Butcher website.
Now, I just order online .... and get ALL my meat supplies delivered to my door. Very convenient!
VG, home delivery customer
Well you would be forgiven for thinking i am on the payroll ...we ONLY eat meat from these guys now. Only problem was the cutlets - didn’t order enough - simply amazing, tender and flavoursome.
Leona, home delivery customer
G'day, I'm just writing to say how impressed I am with your amazing meat and your incredible customer service.Thank you Ben for picking my order and Will for packing it (nice touch with the new little note I found in my delivery today). Wonderful cuts, brilliantly packed. I believe I received my 5th monthly delivery from you today, and I never cease to be delighted. The packaging of the meats is clean and just superb really, the portions are generous, the prices are fantastic and the meat itself is just delicious.
Just as you thank us for supporting our farmers, we'd like to thank you for providing an impeccable service for us. Absolutely LOVE your work Free Range Butcher... you'll definitely hear from me again in a month. THANK YOU.
Michelle, home delivery customer
We are so happy with your service AND the meat is delicious.
Belinda, home delivery customer
Yours is the best value for the best chicken money can buy. I've been buying this chicken, and only this chicken, for 6 months now and will NEVER go back to store bought. Absolutely delicious and the price when bought in 5kg lots is nothing short of ridiculous! Love your work Free Range Butcher.
Michael, home delivery customer
The Preservative Free Sausages were loved by the whole family. They tasted like real meat and the fact that they are preservative free is a wonderful bonus. Thank you!
Laura, home delivery customer
I'd give your Rolled Pork Loin Roast 5 Stars and will definitely purchase more. It was too easy campese on ordering, pick-up, cooking and devouring.
Liz and Matt, home delivery customers
The Beef Rib Cutlet was amazing. I managed to do it justice by pan searing to render the fat and brown the outside then in oven for 10mins (can you tell I have been watching MKR???) and managed to serve it rare.
Leona, home delivery customer
I would like to thank you for the lovely meat I received from you on Monday. Very happy with the service and the meat is really lovely tasting.
Carolyn, home delivery customer
The Chorizo was beautifully flavoured. I made a Paella and can say that the Chorizo out shone the fresh Prawns. Yum!
Elle, home delivery customer
I only buy your grassfed beef mince now. It is better than the grass fed or organic meat from the supermarkets or from many local butchers. Great taste, no fillers, no gunge in the pan when you fry it. Absolutely the best.
Sharita, home delivery customer
Omigod... I am eating the lamb shoulder I bought from you guys on the weekend... there are no words to describe how delicious and succulent it is. I thought your sirloin and scotch fillet we had on the weekend were great, but this lamb is just amazing. I'm almost crying eating it. This is the first time I've had the urge to email about something like this. I'm looking forward to my next purchase!
Samantha, Orange Grove farmers markets
Thank you for providing such a quality product to feed our family of four for 2 nights running. It has been a long time since I have tasted a roast that actually melted in your mouth! If this is the blade steak roast, I am really looking forward to trying the Scotch Fillet!
Angeline Radford, Hornsby
Ben, great to meet you last month at the markets. The Rolled Pork Loin that we bought from you was amazing. We cooked it on the Rotisserie on our BBQ, as you suggested, and rubbed it with oil, salt and a bit of sage. Crackling was crunchy all the way around and the meat was so tender and juicy. We had friends around for lunch and there weren’t any complaints.
Will, Stanhope Gardens
Hi Ben! I bought some Scotch Fillet from you on the weekend at the markets. I just wanted to thank you, first of all for the tips on how to cook the beef, and second for the most magnificent tasting meat I’ve tasted in a very long time. There was no marinade, no salt, pepper or anything on it, and I guarded it with my life so nobody else cooked it! I am a very big fan and will be back to buy up big next time you’re in town! Again, thanks for a great meal, from both my husband and I. Just proves that 'old school' (free range) always tastes better.
Jane Owen, Rouse Hill
Hi Ben, We will be placing another order very soon…we were so impressed with the scotch fillet and the beef strips from our first order…SO IMPRESSED. We both said it was the nicest beef we’d cooked ourselves ever. A few Sydney restaurants might be closing down soon if everyone finds out about you!
Lisa Parrett, Drummoyne
Our Christmas ham was absolutely the most delicious any of us had had for many years. My father is a ham fanatic and he's still talking about it.
We met you on Sunday at Frenchs Forest market with our friend Marion. We bought some rump steak from you and ate it tonight. It was the best tasting steak we have had in ages and we just wanted to let you know. Please keep coming to Frenchs Forest market.
Ray and Judy, Northern Beaches
Thank you, the meat I had last night was beautiful. I have already signed up for your newsletter, and I will certainly be buying more of your products!
