Seven Hills Tallarook is a large, 600 acre rural property in Tallarook, Victoria. Originally opening in 2007 as a goat farm, Seven Hills has now expanded to include student courses, training, and farm stay experiences. Seven Hills will be featuring at the Royal Melbourne Agriculture Show in 2012, showcasing their premium quality goat meat. They will be representing the entire Farmed Goat Meat industry, in addition to Seven Hills and their 33 Alliance Partners.

Taylan Atar, Managing Director and hands on farmer at Seven Hills Tallarook says “The Royal Melbourne Agriculture Show is the perfect place to showcase some of the great produce coming out of Seven Hills and our Alliance Partners”. “The Melbourne Ag Show attracts 460,000 visitors across 11 days, and gives us the chance to show people how delicious goat meat is, and how versatile it is to cook with.” Atar says “many people don’t think of goat meat as an option when it comes to dinner, when in fact it’s very nutritious and lends itself to hundreds of meal options”.

Seven Hills Tallarook are working closely with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), and the Boer Goat Breeders Association of Australia (BGBAA), and will continue this relationship at the Melbourne Agriculture Show. “We are all working towards the common goal of trying to set up a robust, dependable supply chain for the industry - Seven Hills Tallarook”. “Our relationships with key players in the market like the MLA and BGBAA are crucial in achieving this goal”.

“During the 11 days we will be showcasing, sampling, and cooking our range of world-class products such as Goat Ham, Goat Burgers, Goat Pies, Chorizo, Pastrami, Gourmet Sausages and our full range of primal cuts” says Atar. “My wife Megan and I will also be there interacting with showgoers and answering any questions they have about goat meat or the Seven Hills operation”.

Matt Wilkinson, celebrity chef and co-owner of Melbourne’s ‘Pope Joan’ Cafe, will be running cooking demonstrations and masterclasses at the Melbourne Agriculture Show using Seven Hills Goat Meat. “Matt has been a huge supporter of Seven Hills Tallarook, and we are very honoured to work with him at the Melbourne Agriculture Show” Atar says. We will also be working closely with Matt Baker, chef and owner of Whe-Eat, whose focus and passion lies with local, sustainable food. “He is an expert in sustainable produce, so is a great fit for Seven Hills Tallarook” says Atar.

Goats on the Hill

Seven Hills Tallarook will be hosting exclusive ‘paddock to plate’ days at the farm. Featuring Matt Baker, these paddock to plate events will focus on exploring behind the scenes of a sustainable goat farm, as well as other farming activities.

This will be followed by Sunset Canapes with Three Course Farm Appreciation, matched with Local Sustainable Wines, winding down with relaxing 360 views over the Seven Hills Farm.

Tickets will be available online at the Seven Hills Tallarook website, and at the Royal Melbourne Agriculture Show. Tickets are $220 full day/Dinner only $120

About Seven Hills Tallarook

Seven Hills Tallarook use sustainable energy to produce their own electricity harnessing wind and solar power. Their pristine water comes from captured rainwater, underground bores and natural river systems. The animals roam freely in 20 to 40 acre paddocks.

Each paddock is equipped with shelter to protect the animals from the elements. They are fed a rich diet of Pellets which are readily available on demand and are hand fed fresh fodder 3 times a week that is delicately sprouted in our own Fodder Green House.

Seven Hills Tallarook’s key strengths lie in the ability to produce their own product from “paddock to plate”. They guarantee both quality and consistency without compromise. They recognise that the biggest concern in the foodservice Industry is supply and consistency and that customers want to be reassured that their goat meat supplier provides a product that is of the same quality and standard every time.
