Six Generation Family Business

The Greenham family took over the Smithton abattoir in 2001.

They soon realized the quality of beef in Tasmania, particularly the North-West, was outstanding.

Whilst the locals had known for decades that their grass-fed beef was special, it was the combination of a forward thinking processor, great cattle farmers, an ideal climate, knowledge and desire to create a great product that culminated in the launch of Cape Grim Beef in 2007.

From humble beginnings, the brand has grown to include established loyal customers throughout Australia and internationally in Japan, Korea, Thailand, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Russia, Nepal, South Africa, Seychelles, USA and the Maldives.

For a time Greenham operated the Melbourne City Abattoirs; these days they pride themselves on over the hooks trading with local growers, where cattle are sold directly to the processor and feedback on carcass grading is used continually improve beef cattle production.

Greenham’s work with the Cape Grim Beef brand is credited with reviving cattle farming in the Tasmanian North-West through their Smithton plant and they also work with the Robbins Island Wagyu brand in association with the Hammond Family.
