Wickedfood Earth meat

Our meat has no MSG, and is liquid smoke, nitrates & nitrite, gluten and cereal free. Every month we put together a box of delicious veld-raised meat products, with drop-off at Wickedfood Cooking School, Suninghill on Saturday morning, click here to order.

All the meat used in our recipes come from the Wickedfood Earth farm. All our animals completely veld-raised and finnished. We do not use of routine antibiotics and growth hormones or growth stimulants. Through natural farming, our animals take, longer to reach maturity, often twice as long. Our animals muscles  work, which ensures added flavour. Our meat therefor benefits from longer cooked at lower temperatures. –

  • A working farm  – we have an extensive fruit and berry orchard, our vegetable gardens are planted with a wide variety of naturally grown produce, and animals including poultry, pigs, cattle and indigenous sheep.
  • A Country Cooking School, – the commercial arm, offering cooking classes for both individuals and corporate groups, which ensures that the project is sustainable; and
  • A community upliftment training project, – where we are giving back to local communities in the form of skills training, from permaculture farming practises, through to cooking and processing. Products produced during training are available for sale to clients at the Country Cooking School and Wickedfood Earth online market.
