Hagen’s Organic Meats is an organic butcher based in Richmond, Melbourne.
The store was established by Royce Hagen in 1999 as one of Victoria’s original organic butcheries. Drawing on almost two decades of organic food experience, Royce and his wife Susan have strived to become Melbourne’s premier purveyor of fine meats. The desire was always to provide a healthier, more environmentally friendly way of eating.
They know the best farmers and they work closely with them to guarantee the highest quality product. They know what the animals are fed and they know the animals have been treated well. Royce personally oversees both Hagens stalls with the help of his son, Oliver. And they know that nothing can substitute for years of first-hand, organic experience.
Hagens Organic Meats can also be found at the Queen Victoria Market, at their long established stall at the Prahran Market and their new store in Bentleigh. You can also find their meat at Sunnybrook Health Store or order online and have the items delivered to your door.
Hagens also offer classes where they pass on their many years of experience in meat and organics. They demonstrate how the animal is broken down into its primal cuts, whilst at the same time explaining different uses for each cut of meat. Then it will then be your turn to pick up a knife and prepare your own cut of meat.
This is a “hands on class” and the classes are limited to 8 people with 2 butchers to watch over and guide you. You will take home the meat that you butcher on the night whilst also getting a meal at the end of the class matched with the appropriate beer.
Due to popular demand, they are now able to offer people butchery class vouchers, these make an excellent gift for Christmas, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, etc. With 12 months to use until expiry there’s no reason to worry about dates.
