Paddock to Plate Tours - Group Bookings

Tour and Ticket Info

Group Bookings

Maugers Paddock to Plate tour is an interactive & enjoyable experience for any age group and one that may be combined with other activities in the Highlands. Visit Laurel View, the Maugers working farm to learn more about grass-fed beef and lamb production. Find out why raising livestock naturally on grass is better for the animal, the environment and the taste.

As well as running our monthly Paddock to Plate experience, Maugers also offers private Paddock to Plate tours to groups of between 10 and 50. These may be coach parties, schools, corporate offsite events – we’ve even hosted weddings and a buck’s tour with breakfast!

The 3-hour tour includes:

  • Welcome and morning tea.
  • An introduction to the farm, the Mauger family and their grass-fed beef and lamb farming methods.
  • ‘Meet the Mob’ take a walk across the paddocks to see the grazing animals amidst breathtaking Highlands views.
  • Learn about different breeds on the farm, how and why they are selected.
  • The ‘Art of Butchery’ demonstration, where the master butcher breaks down beef, explaining each cut, what to look for when you are buying your meat and taking questions.
  • The plate part! A sumptuous lunch of slow roasted Maugers beef or lamb rolls with homemade preserves.


Take home packs

Your group might like to pre-order some sample packs of our grass-fed beef and lamb to take home. We offer three packs sizes for you to choose from $50, $100, $230.

Order forms can be provided to your group when you book, and your sample packs will be ready and waiting for you at the end of the tour.

(Don’t forget to bring an esky to transport your meat safely home)

“John’s style is so warm, and we felt so welcome by the Maugers. We loved the informal nature of the tour, it was great to ask lots of questions. We came away with a new perspective and it will certainly change the way we buy our meat.”
