Kelvin Tombleson was born into a farming family and has raised sheep in New Zealand, (world renowned Canterbury Lamb), Western Australia and now Tasmania. After being out of farming for a while, the urge was too great not to return to his passion. With the support of his wife Jan and children, Chris and Catherine and their families, the desire to share the pleasures of fresh lamb with the Tasmanian people, Braefield Prime Lamb was born.
After moving to Tasmania and purchasing their property at Calder, they have transformed a dairy property into a sheep grazing property. Pastures were rejuvenated to a more suitable feed for sheep to give the meat the exceptional flavour you experience when eating their lamb. The combination of Clovers, ryegrass and Cocksfoot are part of the menu for the lambs to feed on. The flavour of the Lamb is determined by the conditions the lambs are raised and treated before they are processed for the markets.
Kelvin and Jan’s’ lambs are raised breathing some of the cleanest air in the world in the pristine North West Tasmania, whilst the lush green Tarkine grasses enhance the natural flavours of the meat. They are raised from birth to harvest without artificial growth stimulants or antibiotics producing a result guaranteed to satisfy the palette of any meat eater.
The Tomblesons wish to bring the freshest, cleanest meat to their customers, so not only is Braefield Prime Lamb MSA (Meat Standards Australia) approved, they do not transport their paddock to plate lambs in trucks and do not keep them in yards for long periods of time.
You can order a full or half lamb, cut to your requirements, purchase your favourite cuts or try their tasty and extremely popular Gourmet sausage range. The Tomblesons aim is to provide for customer needs, not only selling their Prime Free Range Lamb at Launceston Harvest Markets on a Saturday they provide the Stanley Hotel, Touchwood Café Stanley, Rocky Cape Tavern, Seabreeze at Killynaught and Aged Care Facilities on the North West Coast. If you are unable to get to the markets they also have a home delivery service. You can reach them via their Facebook page or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kelvin and Jan are in the process of having a Web page created for you to place your orders and ensure your supply of Fresh Free Range Lamb. Why not visit the Harvest Markets and meet them yourself, and take home some lamb that in their words, “Tastes the way lamb should taste”. Kelvin is more than happy to answer any of your question regarding the raising and life of Lambs from Braefield Prime Lamb.
