Gary McBean certainly knows his meat…and the Prahran Market. He’s been there since the ripe young age of nine. “My first job was to rake the saw dust in the butcher shop”, says McBean of his early foray into butchery. “Then I became the offal sales boy with my own register, starting at 4am and finishing by 12pm on a Saturday”, McBean continues to tell me of his early teen years working with his father at the market.
Whilst not all products are certified organic at Gary’s, McBean knows where the meat has come from. “I know all of the farmers. The farmers care about their cattle. No hormones are used, no sprays are used and the cattle are grass-fed. The animals are raised and cared for in the same way a certified organic farm would take care of their animals. I’m more interested in animal welfare and when you know the farmers and how they treat their animals and you get to see it for yourself, I know they’re not lying to me!”
