About Garth

Naked Meats

As one of Tauranga’s most go-ahead butcheries, we are offering good old fashioned personal service, while also embracing the future of retailing.

  • Top quality products
  • Best customer service
  • Competitive prices


We started in 2015 buying beef and lamb from Sean and Lodie Brosnahan from the Sean and Jodie Farm WAIOTANE STATION east cost.

Sean believes in Biological Farming practices.

What I have noticed:

  • Darker colour to the meat
  • Leaner meat
  • The fat is denser more concentrated
  • The fat has a flavour from the past
  • It has a longer shelf life [quality of meat] its tender, rich in colour and flavour
  • The lamb hogget and beef all have similar properties
  • Bostock chicken from the Hawk’s bay has a 10 day shelf life which is 3 day longer than other brands

I believe it’s the quality of food not the quantity that counts depends on the size of the individual

The polio diet is being more widely accepted in the sports world with the all blacks using it finding player are faster learner stronger and have more endurance stamina 
I believe some of the ways we are preserving food is doing more harm than good.

Garth says Naked Meats is all about butchering the old way, and you won’t find meat that hasn’t been aged correctly or contains nasty additives. If you want to buy one steak or 10 you can do just that. And if you don't see exactly what you want, all you have to do is ask.

During 2015 sean and jodi Brosnahan of Waiotane station decided to start a natural organic cattle station.

The genetics to his Angus beef was bought over from Scotland in the 1860's , along with Lamb and Hogget.

To which are also supplied to Bostock by Stan.

Because Absolute Angus has become totally organic there are no longer toxic pesticides in the soil, so the cattle is heathier

therfore the meat you recive is of the highest possible organic qaulity.

Your organic meat has a deeper red colour because of the rich meat.

It now has a higher concentration of Omega 3.

It now has a naturally longer shelf life to conventional meats.

Also its fat content is more concentrated , denser and harder.

After trying out almost every butchery in the Tauranga region, we came across the newly opened Bostock Butchery in Te Puna. The quality of meat is exceptional and so is their personal service. They definetly know their meat and we will recommend them to all our friends.
