Tablelands Premier Meats is the trade name for our abattoir.

Our abattoir is licensed for all red and non-red meats, and we regularly process sheep, pigs, goats and cattle as well as emu and poultry - chickens, ducks, turkeys etc. Our beef floor is 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 slaughtering service available , no minimum number required
  • Butchery and packing available
  • Volume rates may apply, contract rates negotiable

Our undercover receiving pens are designed 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.
