We are Jon & Vanessa Holt & together with our 4 young children, we own & operate Quality Pasturefed Beef. It is a great privilege for our family to be able to share our 100% grass-fed & finished, hormone & antibiotic, gluten, preservative & nitrate free beef direct to you - the consumer.
Being fourth generation farmers/cattle graziers, our history is steeped in producing top quality beef. We value the lessons learnt from those generations gone before us, but also look to the future to keep our business thriving in an ever-changing world.
Based in the Chinchilla district on the Western Darling Downs, Quality Pasturefed Beef has been operating since 2014 & now spans over three properties totalling just under 2000 acres, some of which has been in the family for over 80 years.
Our holistic, regenerative & natural sequence farming practices enable us to maximise production from the land that we have, while also continually improving soil quality, ensuring that we have top quality land for future generations to continue the farming legacy should they wish to.
Our herd consists of 140 Droughtmaster/Brangus breeders & their progeny.
To maintain a high standard of living for every animal in our care, we follow low-stress handling methods & continually interact with the cattle to ensure they are always at ease with us. This also helps us to help them, as it allows us to closely monitor each animal’s health & condition.
Through our ‘paddock to plate’ approach, customers are able to meet the farming family which has produced their food. By using a true ‘nose to tail’ philosophy, we offer products from fat, bones & organ meats right through to the premium cuts of fillet & rump. We also offer 5-10kg variety packs as well as bulk 1/8th, ¼, ½ or whole beast options.
Through our door-to-door, direct to customer deliveries throughout SE Qld & our regular farmers market presence in Toowoomba, we are able to have continual ongoing contact with our customers & give full support to the ‘shop local’ philosophy. We love being able to chat to people at our market stall and thrive on their positive feedback & genuine appreciation of the service that we offer.
The farming lifestyle is not always easy, but it’s one we proudly choose & love.
It is an absolute pleasure to be able to bring you Quality Pasturefed Beef.
