“I have been purchasing my meat from the people at Carve Meat Co. for over 10 years now. At Sidart and Cassia we pride ourselves on sourcing the best and freshest ingredients. The Hawkes Bay Natural lamb is simply superb, always of the highest quality and wonderfully tender. One of my other favourite products is the Freedom Farms Pork Belly which has proven to be a very popular dish at my restaurants. You will not be disappointed by the product supplied by Carve – and the service is excellent, too.”
