Woodlands Wild on the Great Ocean Road near Apollo Bay Victoria supplies prime Otway lamb and beef to Lorne, Wye River, Kennett River, Skenes Creek, Apollo Bay and the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne.
The farm is home to an amazing diversity of plants and wildlife. We are visited by echidnas, koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, parrots, honey eaters, kookaburras, and occasionally a fish or two spotted in the pools of the bordering creek. Areas of undisturbed bush are a wonder-land of tree species, beautiful fungi, cool temperate rain forest, and amazing tree ferns.
Whether it's the Superb Blue Wren flitting from perch to perch, or the breathtaking Wedge Tailed Eagles soaring effortlessly over the Bluff to survey their domain, there is unmatched beauty in every corner of Woodlands Wild.
There are five generations of family connected with Woodlands Wild and a lifetime of love for the land.
The lightly stocked farming of beef and sheep over the decades has been mostly for the purpose of land care, keeping weeds away and pastures healthy. Sale of the limited number of cattle and sheep has historically been through the wholesale markets. This has masked the individual identity to consumers of our excellent quality meat, lost in the general supply chain.
As the next generation of property stewards takes up the reins of Woodlands Wild a new and exciting direction is in progress. Seasonal lamb and beef is being supplied direct to consumers at the Apollo Bay Foreshore Market and Fairfield Farmers Market.
We are also offering prime Otway lamb and beef for order online. This is a 'boutique' family farm so supply is seasonal, with lamb from December to July and beef once every eight weeks. Everything we sell is grown and lovingly cared for at Woodlands Wild. We don't buy livestock in from other farms to meet orders. You can subscribe to our 'new season notifications' below and always be the first to know when product is next available.
In addition to free delivery to Lorne, Wye River, Kennett River, Skenes Creek and Apollo Bay, we also deliver free to the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne, in the local neighbourhood of one of our family members. Free delivery is offered to combine travel time for multiple customer orders and to reduce the food miles for your purchase. Delivery is in an accredited Primesafe cool room vehicle.
We have always known the quality of our livestock is exceptional, and this is now being confirmed by the wonderful feedback from our valued customers. If you would like to try our prime Otway lamb or beef we would love to welcome you as one of our select new customers. We hope the delicious flavour of well cared for and ethically farmed livestock is a delight to your tastebuds.
