Emerald Valley lamb is produced in the fertile, pristine Goldfields region of western Victoria. Lamb has been produced there since 1880, giving it a rich history with solid blood lines. Widely considered a natural haven, the region is internationally recognised as one of the best grazing environments for producing premium export quality lamb that is delicate and succulent.
As the 'superior taste by nature', all Emerald Valley lambs are 100% natural free range pasture fed lambs that have access to lush natural grass, clean water, and fresh country air. This type of feeding process enables the lambs to reach their potential in a stress free environment the way nature had intended – free from hormones and growth promotants.
Emerald Valley lamb is processed by the Australian Lamb Company (ALC). ALC is Australia’s premier lamb processor, and the market leaders in the supply of chilled lamb to Australia and the world’s most prestigious establishments.
