Canowindra's licenced private full service abattoir where all staff have formal qualification in animal welfare.


Tablelands Premier Meats is the trade name for our on-farm abattoir.

Our abattoir is licensed for all red and non-red meats, and we regularly process sheep, pigs and goats  as well as  emu and poultry - chickens, ducks, turkeys etc. In  January 2018 we completed our new beef floor, equipped with 1 tonne lifters, enabling processing of all sizes of livestock.


Tablelands Premier Meats provides

  • Dedicated processing for hobby farmers, organic producers, butchers, 

       market retailer and the grower/consumer.     

  • Private kills , no minimum number required
  • Butchery and packing available
  • Volume rates may apply, contract rates negotiable  
  • Must have PIC & NLIS declaration and Pig Pass  and visible pig tattoo (pigs only) with all stock. 

Tablelands Premier Meats is not halal or kosher, and undertake no ritual slaughter.

We have upgraded our receiving pens to protect animals from heat and nature's elements and has different size pens to accommodate different numbers and species of animal. The pens are adjacent to the abattoir to provide stress free environment for the animals and handlers with a much more effective and efficient process and system, and separated from our own yards to promote biosecurity.
