For the past four years Andrew Sippel and David Strudwick have been capturing the original taste of the outback with Drover’s Choice Saltbush Lamb. In 2004 the two Western plains farmers came together and started the business in Coonamble, NSW.
Over the years Drover’s Choice have perfected their very special meat ensuring it’s original taste of the outback is brought to you every time in the full flavoured, tender and succulent taste of saltbush lamb.
Old Man Saltbush is a native plant with a rich source of minerals and nutrients. This deep rooted perennial plant assists with sustainable land management, agriculture production and helps prevent salinity and aridity.
Old Man Saltbush is environmentally sustainable which guarantee the lambs are able to be fed this plant all year round regardless of weather conditions.
To ensure a consistent eating quality, the Saltbush meats have established a special finishing property at Coonamble where they have perfected the saltbush lamb grazing techniques.
All the saltbush meat is chemical free and the sheep graze in paddocks planted with old man saltbush along with scattered mature trees and consistent tough lasting grass. The native plains can survive the toughest environment which keeps the stock healthy and happy.
The lamb gets taken to the butchers just a short way away at Narromine where the meat is cut into its best prime quality all year round.
