I have an article up on The Hoopla today: Happy ‘Free Range’ Christmas. In it, I detail the certification standards around free-range meat in Australia, and give suggestions about which ones to trust and where to source ethically-produced poultry and pork, plus some advice and links on sustainable seafood.
There are more retailers and promoters of ethical and local produce than I had space for in the article, so I thought I’d put a few more here. Not all produce listed by these sites will necessarily be free-range meats – I’ve included local directories here, and you’ll need to do your own local homework on the details!
I’d be very interested in feedback on more sites – I’ll pop them into the following list as I’m made aware of more.

Pigeon House 150 (Wollongong, NSW)
Transition Mt Alexander Local Food Guide (VIC)
