This months $100 packs have been put together with a focus on end of winter warmers. Next months special will cater to highly marbled BBQ steaks and succulent spring time specials.
Heartland cattle are uniquely free range, grazing on natural clover and rye grass pastures, with a grain supplement program. They drink from crystal clear spring fed creeks, and currently produce an average marble score of 4
Heartland Wagyu is part of the Binnie Beef Group of companies, a family business established by Stephen & Liz Binnie, and hinging of the back of 3 generations and 120 years of stud stock breeding on the family farm, situated on 7,000 acres of prime raising country in the heart of the Hunter Valley.
Steve & Liz have 4 young kids, who represent the 5th generation of Binnies born and raised on the family farm.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the Heartland Wagyu 2A experience. We have raised these animals with love and care, under beautiful, peaceful management and surroundings.
Our Heartland Wagyu beef is one of nature’s super foods, offering health benefits to rival salmon, quinoa and broccoli.
Wagyu is a renowned source of essential vitamins, nutrients and omega oils, which protect the human body from heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, depression and Alzheimer’s disease*

Heartland wagyu is tested for the Stearoyl CA desaturase (SCD) gene. There are several different DNA sequences of the SCD gene in wagyu cattle* these are categorised into 2 groups based on the amino acids Alanine (AA) & Valine (VA). Cattle that have the SCD type A gene have enzymes that are able to change stearic acid (saturated fat) into oleic acid (a monounsaturated fatty acid)* Oleic acid makes the fat soft with a low melting point.
By using the SCD gene we can select the cattle which deposit soft, and oleic acid-rich fat, that is delicious and healthy!
Recent research demonstrates that high oleic acid ground beef may reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease, lower LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL cholesterol ( the good cholesterol)**
