About Us

Hello from Medway Farm

After school James moved away to attend university and ended up working in the Royal Australian Air Force. But a decision to return to James’ roots as a farm boy saw us take on the farming life in 2012 with our young family.

Today we call Medway Farm home and are lucky enough to still have James’ parents living nearby on the farm too. We enjoy farm life and love tending our vegie patch, raising chooks and quails and generally exploring the great outdoors!

Hi we’re James and Belinda Galbraith.

In 1887, James’ great grandfather Frederick Galbraith purchased “Medway” in Sutton Forest in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Since then the Galbraith family have run sheep and cattle on the farm as it was passed down through the generations.

James grew up on Medway Farm and spent his youth swimming in dams, climbing trees and learning the tricks of the trade from his father Bill.

Our farming philosophy

We respect our animals and the food they provide for us.

We have an ethical approach to stock handling and treat our animals with care to ensure they have a happy life and produce a superior, tender product. Our animals aren’t treated like a commodity; they are treated with respect and with gratitude.

We respect our environment and the produce it gives us.

We see ourselves as custodians of the land for future generations and so are careful to preserve the environment and encourage biodiversity. We use careful pasture management, paddock rest periods and appropriate stock numbers to encourage biodiverse pastures containing better nutrients for our cattle.

We respect our customers and want to provide a healthy product.

We’re committed to avoiding chemicals where possible and don’t use hormones or antibiotics which results in meat that not only tastes brilliant, but is better for you and your family.

Our meat

A grain-based diet has the affect of quickly adding weight to cattle but it can also make them unwell and cause harmful bacteria to proliferate. That’s why cattle raised in feedlots often need hormones and antibiotics to keep them healthy.

We prefer to keep our animals healthy the natural way by allowing them to graze on a diet of pasture to ensure they produce a healthier, more nutritious and tastier end product.

Sheep and cattle are ruminants characterised by their multiple stomachs and cud chewing behaviour. Ruminants are designed to graze only on pasture. That’s why we don’t supplement or finish our animals on grain. They spend their entire life grazing contentedly in the paddocks.

All our meat is grass fed, processed to order and delivered fresh from the butcher to your door or you can pick it up from the farm. Our meat comes cut and packed into portions ready to put straight into your freezer or onto your barbeque.
