Home of the finest Tasmanian free-range meat and poultry since 1982


Nichols fresh free-range Tasmanian chicken

Chicken has become one of Australia’s favourite foods because it is wholesome, versatile and easy to prepare. White meat chicken is one of the lowest fat protein sources, and leg meat, while a little higher in fat, adds rich flavour to any meal.

At West Hobart Gourmet Meats, our chickens are locally grown by Nichols. All Nichols chicken is free range, as are their Christmas turkeys. All Nichols poultry is produced without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics.

We also carry a range of turkey, duck and quail products.

Customer feedback:

On December 4th, I organised a Christmas musical soirée for thirty guests at Dysart House. John Wilson, whose catering business John & Peter is generally regarded as the finest in Australia, flew down to create the buffet.

Both he and I agree that we have never had finer ingredients, including eight fresh chickens and the best-ever ham from West Hobart Gourmet Meats. Your products are simply the best.
