Taranaki family run business Green Meadows Beef has acquired the Woodburn Venison brand. The small-goods company has been run by Sally Haslett for the past 18 years in the Hawke’s Bay, but production will be moved to New Plymouth from the 5 November where the other Green Meadows Beef products are produced. Green Meadows will continue the same product lines, so customers can rest assured their favourite venison burgers, meatballs and sausages will not disappear from the shelves.

Managing Director of Green Meadows Beef, Nick Carey, said the team is excited to expand into venison. “Sally has done an incredible job growing Woodburn Venison from the ground up and we are grateful she will be staying on with us for a few months to manage the transition. We are looking forward to continuing production of the delicious Woodburn venison products, as well as exploring new opportunities and experimenting with flavours and styles in the future”.

Green Meadows Beef was founded in 2012 by the Carey family. In 2016 renowned chef Michael Van de Elzen partnered with the team and together they released the Good From Scratch range of Angus Beef & Beetroot and Harissa Lamb & Kumara burgers and meatballs.
