Our Story

Generational farming meets innovative sustainability.

We are Marina and Warren Wiggins, and we come from a long line of farmers.

Our passion and goal has always been to provide our community with an exceptional product – locally-bred Dorper lamb raised in a stress-free environment using eco-conscious farming principles.

Generations of farming knowledge

We’re born and bred farmers living and farming on the beautiful north coast of NSW. Farming has been in our family for generations; we carry all those years of knowledge, care and passion with us in what we do.

We established Local Dorper Lamb in 2011 so we could give customers in our local community easy access to amazingly delicious, grass-fed Dorper lamb products. Now we’re introducing the rest of Australia to the finest premium Dorper lamb through our online shop.

“Best tasting lamb I’ve had to date – the quality is amazing!! Each cut I’ve had (nearly all of them) has been so flavoursome. My favourite has been the slow-cooked lamb shoulder in their pasture-raised, grass-fed tallow. I love their seaweed fertiliser too for the gardens; it’s like nothing else I’ve used.” – Jordan Cousins


“Warren and Marina produce the tastiest lamb and offer a friendly local service through the markets. It’s great to talk directly to the people who raise and look after the sheep, local lamb at its best.” – Thomas Scott


“I Love purchasing Local Dorper Lamb’s products at the Ballina Farmers Market at Missingham by the Sea on Sundays. Warren and Marina are extremely nice to talk to and learn about their farm. The taste of their lamb is like none other. So tender and flavourful! Plus, they have such a variety for any type of occasion, but my favourite would either be low and slow on charcoal BBQ or a Shank in the Slow Cooker!” – Alexander Sharkey


“Great local product, a full, rich flavour and not too fatty. The eye fillets, rumps and mince are all wonderful. Love buying local too!” – Helen McDonough


“I had your lamb for the first time this week! A lamb leg roast and some beautiful ribs. I’ve never had lamb or any kind of meat with such depth of flavour, you can taste the care that has gone into these animals. Your ethical farming practises are reflected in the lamb, and I cannot wait until my next purchase.” – Larissa


“Just wanted to say, that was the most delicious lamb chops we have ever had.” – Kristin Bass
