At AJD Meats, we are cattle farmers at heart and we invite our customers to become a part of our story.

Named after "oupa", the AJD brand was chosen to represent our family's values and this in turn is reflected in the way we produce our meat.  

We  bring our customers the taste and health benefits of eating old-school, organic beef, at an affordable price. No routine antibiotics, no growth hormone or grain feeding, as has become the norm in feedlot reared animals. They are free to choose their own diet.

Our animals have to spend a little longer in the green pastures, in order to produce the required meat and layer of fat, which adds vitamins and minerals that may be absent from strictly grain fed animals.  You will definitely notice a distinct flavour difference, particularly when you taste the yummy golden fat.

So like we raise our cattle, take your time, slow down, enjoy our "real beef" and become part of our family.

We now offer customers the convenience of delivering your farm fresh meat to your door. Please enter your preference (deliver or collect) as part of your shipping request.

Deliveries will be done during business hours and we will do our utmost best to deliver between 13:00 and 16:00. Please ensure that there will be someone to accept your parcel at your chosen delivery address.

*Local delivery is within Newcastle, KZN (For surrounding areas like Madadeni, Osizweni and outlying areas around town, please select your location at checkout and you will be charged accordingly.) Delivery usually happens within 2-3 working days after we receive your order, stock and production capacity allowing. But do no fret, we will be in touch.

About AJD Meats

Happy animals

Our cattle are free to roam, not confined to feeding pens. Happy animals make healthy meat for happy customers.

Locally produced

Our farms are located in the Normandien and Newcastle areas. We encourage customers to visit us on the farm, where we host monthly events to share the farm experience. Hennie will become your family's favourite blockman.

Responsible farming

We do not inject or feed our cattle any growth stimulants, as has become the norm with feedlot animals. Although the terms "free range" and "hormone free" are controlled by large corporates, visit our farm and see for yourself.
