Fifty acres of pasture is a lot of grass to manage, and the local NRM (National Resource Management) – the mob who consult on how to improve and maintain a healthy farm – have told Matthew he desperately needs to get animals to graze his grass… to regenerate it and add fertility to the soil. The quickest way to do that is with a large animal such as cattle. Matthew researches the best cattle for Fat Pig Farm, and how to produce the best quality meat, which is when it's been dry-aged for up to 12 weeks. Value adding his beef means cured products, such as bresaola or condiments like stout mustard, can be sold at the Common Ground shop.
