From Nature Pastoral Co. - Premium saltbush meats

Why all the fuss about saltbush?

Meat raised on saltbush combines a rare combination of low fat content, whilst producing a distinct, robust taste.

The meat has been shown to retain its marketable selling colour for longer and shelf life has seen to be slightly longer than meats not grazed in this manner.

The meat tends to present a nice minerally character without the fatty after taste on the palate. Saltbush meats have been found to have high levels of antioxidants. Combine this with low fat and cholesterol levels, and you have a meat for the 21st century.

The saltbush plant is native to our land. The many species of this plant are drought resistant and are in plentiful supply on our station.
