So What is Saltbush Lamb?
The Best Tasting Lamb You've Ever Had!
That's What It Is.
Drover's Choice Saltbush Lamb is produced by grazing lambs on the Australian native Oldman Saltbush. Our saltbush fed lamb has a unique eating flavour which is only achieved from a diet high in protein and natural minerals, which are all available from this special Australian plant.
Oldman Saltbush is a very drought resistant plant and has lived a long time in the harsh Australian Outback. Its incredible deep root system allows the plant to access moisture from far beneath the surface, where it can access many trace minerals and also help to reduce soil salinity levels. It does this by drawing salts through the root system and dispersing it on the leaves of the plant helping to regenerate previously unproductive farm land.
The protein-rich foliage and high mineral content of Oldman Saltbush gives the meat a very clean, crisp, lean and delicious flavour, a unique characteristic resulting from the animals grazing on these native shrubs. As animals are also grazing from up off the ground, they avoid traditional parasites often associated with grass land grazing. They require no drenching, worming or mulesing and are a very fit and healthy animal.
Oldman Saltbush is well suited to Australia's low and erratic rainfall conditions. The plant also reduces soil salinity and provides sustainable grazing for sheep all year round. This sustainable farming method aids farmers in surviving harsh drought times, stabilises grazing lands and promotes the growth of our native grasses and wildlife. Planting Oldman saltbush acts as a catalyst, in conjunction with holistic land management practices, to revive soils degraded by unsuitable grazing and cropping practices.
