Meet the Meat

Carve Beef

Carve beef starts with the world’s best breeds, including Angus and Hereford.

Our New Zealand beef is slowly matured on luscious New Zealand grass to produce tender, flavoursome meat. Grass-fed beef is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, and high in vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Our beef is cold boned and aged for flavour, tenderness and consistency. For those that like extra intensity, try our delicious dry-aged beef.

We also offer a selection of premium beef from our international suppliers.

Lansdowne Beef

Lansdowne Angus Cross cows graze freely on nutritious pastures along the beautiful South Pacific coast.

They live in small family herds, enjoying clean air and the lush, salty pastures and rolling meadows of the Conway Coast. With a setting like this, it’s no wonder that Lansdowne sustainably produced beef tastes so succulent and flavourful.

Black Origin

Premium New Zealand grown wagyu using traditional Japanese techniques.

New Zealand grown Black Origin comes from a group of Japanese breeds revered for their superior marbling ability. The animals lead stress-free lives, receiving soothing massages and being slowly fed on nutritious grains. This results in a supremely tender meat, with softer fats that enhance the juiciness and flavour.

The selection process is rigorously administered by a dedicated team of farmers, experienced livestock personnel and a master grader, ensuring that through different seasons, regions and breeds, the best products are always chosen.

The farmers’ care and passion for great farming shines through in their succulent, tasty, Pāmu Venison.

Carve Free-Range Chicken

Carve chickens are raised on the green fields of the mighty Waikato.

They’re free to peck and forage from spray-free pastures, just as nature intended. The chickens enjoy a mix of quality cereal grains, including corn, wheat, and sorghum, supplemented with vitamins and minerals to ensure good health. The result is tender, juicy, free-range chicken.
