We create the highest quality hams and smallgoods based on seasonal supply from farm grown produce in a pristine setting.
Country Style Smallgoods commenced in 2013 when Sebastian saw the potential for his quality artisanal smallgoods to be produced locally in the Ballarat region. Initially Sebastian supplied his Country Style Smallgoods on a wholesale basis to deli's, restaurants and cafes in Melbourne and the greater Ballarat region.
Sebastian's parents are originally from Istra, a peninsula off the Northern Coast of Croatia. The southern European lifestyle is renowned for quality cured meats, using processes from previous generations dating back hundreds of years. Sebastian's meat producing skills were acquired whilst a boy residing with his family in Musk, southeast of Daylesford making a variety of salamis, proscuitto, pancetta and cappocollo was a daily activity. To quote Sebastian, "Growing up, it's what we did, our cultural thing."
You can currently sample Sebastian's quality meat produce at a large number of places around Ballarat including, The Lane, Cafe Meigas, Jacksons & Co, L'espresso, Java, The Unicorn and Mid City Bar & Grill just to name a few. If you are in Melbourne you can pop into the legendary deli, Casa Iberica to purchase some of his produce to take home.
