“John is an award winning small goods maker and butcher at the state and national level. His hams truly are the best Australia has to offer. Tradition and quality meats hang from every corner of this shop. John has featured in advertisements promoting locally produced food. The shop is always full and turnover high. For a real treat try John's aged rump and while you are at it, pick up a mate's loaf and bones for your dog! ”
