Established as a mixed farming enterprise in 1962, the picturesque Seville property is now the home of Little Creek Cattle Company.(LCR), including Little Creek Simmentals established in 1991.
Through years of research, observation and much 'trial and error', LCR is now able to use a total conception to consumption beef program.
The introduction of our innovative Beef Direct program has been a great success, and now means our breeding program is tested by the harshest critic... the consumer. Our repeat customers are testament to the premium quality beef we offer to the public.
Each carcass is evaluated three times. By LCR in the paddock, again under the knife, and finally by the consumer on the taste buds!!! We are beginning to determine which breeds and even which genetics deliver greatest profits to the producer and the best eating experience for the consumer. Our Beef is marketed though out Melbourne via Home Delivery and the Farmers Market circuit.
On the management side, we are trialing different feeding regimes to determine how best to get steers and heifers to a marketable stage. It's a big challenge keeping green feed to our cows 12mths of the year!!!! We use no hormones or antibiotic treatments.
Already finding European x British breed steers are standouts in pasture utilization, they are more than proving their worth on the hook and on the dinner plate. We encourage serious beef producers, who have not yet looked at crossbreeding, to do so. The hybrid vigor advantage is hard to fault. Heterosis may well be the beef producer's greatest ally.
We would like to thank you for visiting our website. It is under continuous development, and we encourage you to drop by regularly to keep up to date with our breeding program and our new beef direct products and options.
Please feel free to contact us via this website to discuss your requirements.

Our beef is grown and finished in the lush pastures of the Yarra Valley. We use no hormone implants or antibiotic treatments on our steers. At our boning room in Coldstream, the beef is dry aged for 2-3 weeks before it is butchered. This means that our beef is clean, healthy and deliciously tender.
We are now able to provide not only a bulk order delivery service, but now attend a wide range of Farmers Markets across Melbourne and surrounding areas. This means that discerning beef connesseurs can stock up the freezer or buy a single steak depending on what is easiest for them. Side orders can give you a double bonus of great beef and greater savings. Bulk orders can be ordered online and start at $9.99/kg
We attend up to 15 Farmers markets every month. Check out our market list. If possible it is best to pre order for the market as the lines can be big and we only have limited stock for each market. A retail price list and order form can help with your choice.
We deliver into Melbourne and suburbs every week, and depending on your locality and order, can deliver within 7 days. Please keep in mind that orders of selected cuts will need to total around $100 or more to qualify for delivery. Side orders can take between 2 and 3 weeks before delivery. Delivery fees are minimal. Check the delivery map to see what fee applies to your area.
Our alliance with Finley based Killara Rise Lamb , allows us to provide a variety of options. A mix of beef and lamb can give you even more options at meal time.
We hope you enjoy our grass fed beef and lamb. We are sure you will appreciate the extra effort it takes to bring you red meat with great flavour AND tenderness.

1 kg beef rump, cut into 3cm cubes
2 medium onions, cut into 3cm dice
2 red peppers, cut into 3cm dice
100g button mushrooms
200g thick-cut rashers smoky bacon, cut into 3cm dice
freshly ground pepper
1 cup red wine
2 garlic cloves
2 bay leaves
3 sprigs thyme
½ medium onion, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place the cubed beef in a shallow container. Add the marinade ingredients and use your hands to toss well so the beef is evenly coated. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat your barbecue to high. Drain the marinated beef and pat it dry on kitchen paper. Thread the beef, onion, pepper, mushrooms and bacon onto skewers, alternation to your liking.
Season the shashliks lightly then grill for 8 minutes, turning them frequently, so they colour and cook evenly.
Remove the shashliks from the heat and serve with a plain pilaf.
Pot-Roasted beef shin with smoky bacon and baby onions
Beef shin is one of those bargin basement cuts that are fantastic for long, slow cooking. It’s often sold off the bone as gravy and makes great pies and soups. Here it’s cooked on the bone as a tasty pot-roast, and the meat’s intrinsic chewiness softens down to a melting tenderness.
This pot-roast is definitely a better the next day sort of dish, as the flvours develop and intensify with time. It’s a meat in its own right. This is great served with creamy buttery mash and a bottle of full bodied red wine.
1 x 1.8kg beef shin
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
250g thick cut rashes smoky bacon, cut into 4 cm dice
2 anchovy fillets
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 sticks celery, chopped
6 garlic cloves, halved
400g button mushrooms, halved
2 cups red wine
3 cups beef stock
3 sprigs thyme
2 bay leaves
200g green olives
chopped parsley to serve
Preheat the oven to 150 oC
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy based casserole then sear the beef until evenly browned all over. Lift the beef out onto a plate.
Add the butter to the casserole. Fry the bacon and anchovies until the bacon begins to brown and the anchovies start to melt. Add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic and stir together well. Lower the heat and sauté gently for 5 – 8 minutes, or until the vegetables soften.
Add the remaining ingredients to the casserole and bring to a gentle simmer. Season to taste then cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 1 hour then remove the lid from the casserole and cook for a further 1 ½ hours. By the end of the cooking time the beef should be completely tender and falling away from the bone.
When ready to eat, sprinkle generously with parsley and serve with plenty of mashed potatoes.
Roast stuffed brisket of beef
When it’s cleaned and trimmed, brisket forms a large flat piece of meat, which is ideal for stuffing and rolling. It’s the perfect cut for feeding a lot of people cheaply! The brisket is a fairly fatty piece of meat that comes from the breast of the animal.
1 x 3.5kg beef brisket
freshly ground pepper
Greek olive and caper stuffing
200g kalamata olives, pitted and roughly chopped
1 cup homemade sourdough breadcrumbs
½ cup chopped parsley
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons capers, chopped
2 anchovies, chopped
3 tablespoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven 165 oC
To prepare the brisket, lay it out on your work surface, and trim away any excess chunks of fat and sinew. Use a sharp knife to score the membranes that cover the surface.
To make the stuffing, mix the ingredients together thoroughly. Season the brisket all over with salt and pepper and spread the stuffing evenly with butcher’s string at 5cm intervals.
Place the rolled brisket on a rack inside a large roasting tin. Roast for 3 hours, turning every 30 minutes so that it browns evenly.
Remove from the oven and leave in a warm place to rest for at least 30 minutes before carving.
Because of its fattiness, this is a cut that works brilliantly with the strong salty flavours of the stuffing. Serve it with Garlic and Rosemary roasted Potatoes and gravy.
My favourite way of cooking oxtail is in a sticky, full flavoured soup.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2kg oxtails, cut into small chunks
freshly ground black pepper
2 medium carrots, roughly chopped
2 sticks celery, roughly chopped
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
4 onions, sliced
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1 cup red wine
1 cup port or Madeira
6 sprigs thyme
1.5 litre good quality beef or chicken stock
¼ cup chopped parsley
Heat the oil in a heavy based casserole dish until it sizzles. Season the oxtails. Brown them all over, then transfer them to a plate. Add the carrots, celery and parsnip to the casserole and sauté over a medium heat until they begin to colour.
Add the butter to the casserole and when it begins to sizzle, all the onions and garlic. Sweat over a medium heat until the onions begin to soften and turn a plate golden brow. Deglaze the pan with the red wine and port then return the oxtails to the pan.
Add the thyme\me to the casserole then hour on the stock. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Cover the casserole and simmer gently for 3 hours, or until the meat is very tender.
When cool enough to handle, pick all the meat from the oxtail, discard the bones. Return the meat to the soup, taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking and serve garnished with parsley.
