Close to the pasture based sheep and beef farms of Otago and Southland, and with a long history of settlement from Scotland, England and Europe, with their traditional meat cuisines, Dunedin is an outstanding destination for meat lovers. For hunters, shooting introduced game animals like wild deer, pigs, rabbits, chamois, thar and even wallabies, a local butcher offers a processing service where the meat is butchered and returned as sausages, steak, mince or other cuts, taking the hassle out of dealing with the kill.
Leckies Butchery in the beach suburb of St Clair is a 3rd generation family business which celebrates its 90th year in 2017. Their meat comes from Canterbury, Otago and Southland and their pork comes from the Otago Peninsula. They make a large range of small goods including sausages, saveloys, frankfurters, black and white puddings, and you can even order haggis online.
Deep Creek Deli has two shops, one in South Dunedin and the other in North Rd. They have a large selection of free range and organic meat for sale and their sausages come in a stunning range of German flavours and styles, dairy and gluten free.
