Running Creek Beef

Delivering to your door direct from their farm, Running Creek Beef producers grass-fed, premium, free-range beef from the mountain pastures & crystal-clear waters of Running Creek, Scenic Rim, Qld.

Second generation cattle farmers Rod & Debbie Richardson launched their paddock-to-plate, true grass-fed beef business in October 2018 with their first delivery from their 670-acre property in the lush and picturesque Running Creek.
Running Creek Beef, named because of the influence of Running Creek and The MacPherson Ranges on the delicious beef, raises premium, free-to-roam, naturally tick-resistant, grass-fed beef cattle featuring the Australian Sahiwal. The Sahiwal was first imported into Australia by CSIRO in the 1950’s due to its naturally occurring tick resistance and ability to produce both beef and milk under hot tropical conditions.
Due to the Sahiwal breed content, the Running Creek Beef cattle are not only grass-fed but also do not undergo regular and invasive chemical tick treatments, receiving only general health treatments to ensure quality herd-health. Less chemicals = healthier eating. Additionally, this decreases the mustering and handling of the cattle which minimizes their stress and boosts the eating quality and tenderness. Please note that our husbandry treatments or feeding NEVER includes the use of hormone growth promotants.
Fresh from the farm via a fully-accredited butchering facility, Gary, the local award-winning butcher from Elite Meats of Boonah, butchers the meat to Running Creek Beef’s customers’ requirements. From eye-fillet to the popular brisket plus the much sought after RCB Fat sausage, all cuts are individually packed into cryovacked (vacuum) air-tight bags by the butcher.
Rod & Deb do the deliveries themselves, creating a direct link for their customers to the producers and farm. Delivering their beef in a Food Safe accredited refrigerated van, customers have complete traceability and minimal food miles with free delivery on orders of 5kg or more throughout Brisbane, Ipswich, Scenic Rim, Logan and Gold Coast. Plus, customers can choose their favourite cuts from as little as 500 grams per cut. Deliveries occur monthly from January to November. For notification of delivery dates register your details on
