Shiralee Meats - Certified Organic ACO #12767
Specialists in Organic, Biodynamic, Free Range and Grass Fed Meat.
Shiralee Organic Meats is a premium Australian Certified Organic butcher on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Serving retail customers both in store and online as well as wholesale clients across Sydney.
Shiralee specialises in the finest certified organic, biodynamic and free-range meats from Australia's best and most awarded producers.
They provide 100% traceability and are proudly chemical free.
Their aim is to educate the community and encourage everyone to ask questions about the source of their meat supply. More specifically, is it grass-fed? Is it grass-finished? Does your current supplier have the Certification documentation to prove what they’re saying?
Some so-called “organic” even “certified organic” suppliers (mainly the supermarkets) source their organic meat that may well be labelled “grass-fed,” but in the last few months of its life are forced to feed on nothing but grain. Their heads are locked into holding mechanisms, which are designed to increase their size to the perfect weight in order to meet packaging specifications.
This is not only grossly inhumane but would cause the animal incredible stress, inflammation, even disease in its last few months of life, not to mention being feed toxic grain, which we then eat as consumers.
Animals that are NOT treated in this way will include “grass-fed” and “grass-finished” on their packaging along with the ACO logo. They support farmers who care enough to take the time to implement humane procedures and pay the annual ACO certification costs to ensure quality meat is supplied.
Central to their values is a desire to provide an overall ethical, healthy and sustainable way of producing, farming and eating.
Biohax Organics places weekly orders with Shiralee Organic meat where it is prepared fresh and then frozen the same day for delivery to our store the following.
To ensure the quality of the meat is preserved we also store it frozen until it's purchased. Most meats have a frozen shelf life between 4-6 months and 3-5 days thawed in the fridge.
A slimy surface film that you can see or feel on a piece of steak is a sign of rancid meat or spoilage. It'll be clear or yellowish in color but will make the steak appear shinier than usual. It will also have a slippery or sticky feel when you run your fingers over it.

Reliable & Ethical Supply
Central to our values is a desire to provide an ethical, healthy and sustainable way of producing, farming and eating. Due to the nature of Organic production there are occasions such as drought where we are unable to source Certified Organic produce. In this case we ensure the livestock are raised in the most humane way in paddocks not feedlots, grown using regenerative practices on pastures where there are no chemicals used and never given hormones or unnecessary routine antibiotics.
We can provide details of the farmers we source our products from so you can check for yourself.
Order Notice Period
We’ve specified a 2 day notice period for ordering meat because we want it to be as fresh as possible for consumption.
For public holidays and special events such as Easter, Long Weekends, Winter in July, Christmas, New Year etc. we will need at least 2-3 weeks’ notice for large orders to secure your certified organic meat.
