Parkhurst Quality Meats


For those who have been reading for a while, you know that I love supporting the local guy where I can. If every dollar I spent could stay in the region I am residing, I would make it so. In that vein of thought my local butcher, Parkhurst Quality Meats, not only provides me with a large variety of butchered goods, but has second to none customer service, and an attitude of constant improvement and development.

I love my meat. I love beef, lamb, goat, chicken, duck, crocodile, in fact if it can be butchered, I’m in! Reggie and his team provide a large variety of butchered meats, and meat products. The casing window is chock a block full of different cuts, marinated products, stuffed products, a large selection of flavoured sausages, jerky, cabana, salami, and the list goes on. You can walk past the window every day, and every day there will be something new. And if you don’t see something you want it is nothing to the boys and girls to go and grab it for you. I have been exclusively eating the meat from Parkhurst Quality Meats for nearly two years now, and I have never has a bad or even mediocre product. The team love feedback on what you have tasted, and will endeavour to take any thoughts on board. The team also provide bulk packs in the form of ‘BBQ Packs’ with differing denominational values attached, or going whole hog and ordering a quarter of a Cow. Nothing is too much for the team, and everything is sublime.

The customer service at Parkhurst Quality Meats is second to none. The service you receive at the window is superb, but it even extends beyond that. Myself, and many other customers are welcomed just by walking past the shopfront. The staff always remember your name, and are genuinely interested in how you are doing. They are the epitome of a small community Butcher. It reminds me of the old TV show Cheers where Everybody knows your name. The team remember what you have bought recently, ask how the product was, and make suggestions based on your feedback to ensure that you have the best dining experience with their products. They are always innovating based on customer feedback, which just shows that the team really listen, and genuinely care about your feedback. Nothing is too hard for the team. If something isn’t in the casing window, and they have it out back, it’s yours. If you have a budget and an idea in mind, they can tailor the meat selection accordingly. They even help with portions and required amounts of meat. Nothing is too hard for the team.

I’ve already touched on the constant improvement and development that the team put into their products, and it shows. It almost seems every time you turn around, Reggie and the rest of the team at Parkhurst Quality Meats are winning an award for some creation of theirs. This not only reaffirms their devotion to improvement, but also shows the level of product you are receiving. Even products like the humble sausage has all of the love and attention to detail that can possibly be poured into it, added in. I could not speak more highly of the products that Reggie and the team produce, but instead of being verbose, I will let the pictures of just some of the awards that they have been awarded.

If you live in Rockhampton, or even the surrounding region, and are looking for a great, friendly, local butcher, then look no further than Parkhurst Quality Meats. You will not be disappointed.
