WELCOME TO MARLEGOO FARMS
The home of Marlegoo Charbray Stud
& Marlegoo Long-Tail Lamb
Marlegoo is the birthplace of a few different enterprises, which are shared across the 2 family properties "Marlegoo" & "Koolibah", run jointly with Cherie & her parents Mark & Tish Gooding.
"MARLEGOO CHARBRAY STUD CATTLE" breeds & provides quality seedstock to commercial beef producers. Bred in our Central Queensland conditions, of tick, fly, drought & flood - the "survive-ability", fertility & finishing ability of our predominantly polled cattle, stand up to the tests time & again. Our herd is now pure Charbray, a move that was initially unconscious & then with intent, as this breed continued to perform under all the stressors & to fit ALL the markets. As certified Charbray breeders we sell bulls out of the paddock and annually at the Charbray National Sale at CQLX Gracemere, in September.
"MARLEGOO LONG-TAIL LAMB" is our paddock to plate, ethically raised & chemical free meat sheep enterprise, providing lamb direct from our farm to your table, cut & boxed specifically to your families requirements. Ordered direct through us, butchered & boxed in nearby Monto, for collection at either Biloela or Monto.
This boutique sideline business is flourishing beyond our capacity to currently supply, as the quality & flavour does the talking for us. This fact along with the raising of lambs on grass, with guardian dogs, ethically with no tail docking - remains our focus. Quality not quantity! We are beyond excited to have recently received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Capricorn Food & Wine Festival's, "Farmer Meets Foodie Chef's Table", with our lamb.
