What else do we offer?
At Hummerstons we have stringent quality standards when it comes to sourcing and selecting our products. We only buy M.S.A graded beef, which comes from Gympie in QLD. Our standards are not limited to meat: our pork is sourced from the Murray Valley in NSW, organic chicken from Young NSW, Junee Gold lamb (NSW) and our veal is sourced from Victoria. We also provide a great selection of game. All of our sausages are made fresh on the premises, and includes a range of gluten-free and preservative-free sausages.
At Hummerstons we like to help make life easier for our busy customers by providing a free delivery service, covering suburbs from Roseville to Balmain. Ordering over the phone or by email is now even easier, with a comprehensive listing of our products listed within the pages of this website. We also provide a vacuum-packing service, which provides greater flexibility for longevity and storage, according to individual needs.
Hummerstons Gourmet Meats also strives to give back to the community, raising money for numerous charities and sponsorships through the ‘Buy Your Dog a Bone’ program. Hummerstons has supported and continues to support many charities over the years such as the Drought Relief, Breast Cancer Foundation, the Spastic Centre and the Heart Foundation, amongst many others; and most recently the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. We also support many organisations throughout the local community.
