Cherry Tree Organics Beef – Australia - Premium Biodynamic Organic Pure Grass Fed British Breeds Beef & Prime Lamb

Cherry Tree Organic pure grass fed beef and lamb is the product of Shane and Ann Blundy, from their family farm, ‘Cherry Tree Downs’, in the Gippsland region of Australia (Southern Victoria).

The farm is lush in biodynamic organic pasture, receiving more than 40 inches of rainfall a year. The pasture has been the focus for these farmers for more than 20 years, the healthiest pasture root and soil condition will produce feed for the animals which is very high in nutrients and minerals.

The best beef genetics have been developed out also over 20 years on the biodynamic organic pasture. The animals live on the farm in a very relaxed atmosphere, producing exceptional quality beef.

Being fully sustainable the farm produces only a limited number of animals each season that can be made available for eating.

The beef is prized for its taste, tenderness, and high nutritional qualities.

Shane and Ann have a mission to provide total transparency, you are guaranteed the best quality meat, direct from the farm. They would like to share some insights into what and why they have spent 20 years developing their beef for you to try today.


A day in the life of the Cherry Tree Organics team is dependent on the season as there are different priorities on the farm at different times of the year.  The farm day starts as soon as the sun rises, the first priority is to check the animals and ensure they are happy and content.  We then might be moving our animals onto fresh pasture, shearing sheep, checking water levels, mending fences or planting trees.  The day ends just before sunset with a final check of our animals.

What did you do before Cherry Tree Organics?

We are generational farmers, we both grew up on farms; our parents were farmers, as were our grandparents. 

Can you tell us about the nutritional benefits of Cherry Tree Organics?

The pasture on our property is grown using a holistic approach, no artificial fertilizers, or additives. The use of natural minerals and inputs creates an extremely healthy environment for plant growth.  This healthy environment produces healthy animals – high in Omega 3, no hormones, vaccinations or chemicals grown the way nature intended.

What sets Cherry Tree Organics apart from other organic meats on the market?

We practice traditional farming methods; breeding slow growing cattle and allowing them to reach maturity naturally.  We breed Angus and Hereford cattle, these old style, British bred cattle are renowned for their tender meat, natural levels of marbling and an abundance of deep, rich flavours developed through a grass diet.   With plentiful rainfall and a temperate climate, South Gippsland is Australia’s most prized environment for producing superior quality beef & lamb.

Cattle raised at ‘Cherry Tree Downs’ enjoy a low stress life in a natural environment, ethical considerations are foremost in our minds – not only is this kind to the animals but it results in tender meat.

Why is organic so important to you?

Many years ago all food was organic, the way nature intended.  I am proud that we are producing a product that is healthy and real food, not tampered with as so many products are today.  So many foods are interfered with using chemicals, fillers, pumped with liquid to weigh more etc.

We are proud that our product is pure, clean & healthy.

When you’re not busy with Cherry Tree Organics what do you like to do in your spare time?

We love to spend time with our family, especially our two recently arrived grandchildren.  I also practice yoga every day, bike ride and surf.

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only take three things, what would they be?

Organic Rump steak with plenty of fat on, a beautiful Organic Red Wine and BBQ to cook on!  Sweet potato wedges also if I could have just one more.
