The team attribute their business success to the diversity of their customers with retail consumers a critical mainstay, however they have also built an exceptionally successful wholesale side of the business.
“We supply to many of the region’s boutique restaurants and cafes – who all share our ethos for high-quality locally-sourced meats,” Ashley says.
These include Eltham Valley Pantry, Nat’s Coffee, 86 on Main, Quattro and Two Hands just to name a few – and, unsurprisingly, these are also some of Tina and Ashley’s favourite places to enjoy a meal after and during work hours.
The next step for the business will take it from Alstonville to the world, with online sales launching later in the year. “This is really the great unknown for us and we’re very excited for the challenge.”
Ashley has a simple formula for success: “Happy customers, happy staff, moving with the times, and helping support local growers and businesses in Northern Rivers.”
