If you love lamb and you love the taste of bacon, then we know that you’ll love our Original Lamb Bacon. As the name suggests it is a bacon made with lamb, not pork. We have mastered the process of salting, smoking and curing all sorts of lamb cuts, but our first product launched over two years ago is LAMB BACON. There are many types of bacon throughout the world and now there is Lamb Bacon in Australia.
Our Artisan method use salt cure and wood smoke just like a traditional pork bacon, but its not pork. It has a similar appearance to a streaky bacon and can be used in lamb bacon recipes as a replacement for bacon and to add a modern twist to a favourite. Lamb Bacon Pizza, Lamb Bacon BLT, Lamb Bacon and Eggs.
We love how it always finishes with a lovely crispy crunch when it is cooked. It really is the best of Lamb and the best of Bacon.
We have spent months refining the traditional techniques of salting, smoking and curing so that every mouthful celebrates the lamb flavour and texture while maintaining all of the delicious bacony things we love.
Using natural flavours, sourced predominately from Australia, each release is hand crafted by Lamb Bacon entrepreneur, Toni Barton. Toni developed the idea in 2016 in a bid to value add each lamb cut from her property in Central Victoria. Half way between Lancefield and Tooborac. Toni started breeding Australian White Lambs, the wagyu of lamb, some years ago and was determined to pave the way in lamb smallgoods globally.
In 2016 our Lamb Bacon releases included a variety of hand crafted flavours including LamBacon™ Maple, LamBacon™ Sriracha, LamBacon™ Lemon & Pepper, in collaboration with Melbourne distillery LamBacon™ Starward Whiskey & Spiced Apple. However we will never tire from the original LamBacon™ Murray River Salt, Wood Smoked release.

The Australian Lamb Bacon Story
It all began with Lamb Bacon Entrepreneur Toni Barton, a sheep farmer in Central Victoria, Australia.
The farmer, Toni Barton, breeds Australian White Wagyu Lamb, some 80km north of Melbourne. Toni’s farm has provided excellent quality produce to her growing customer base since 2012. Toni has built her farm and lamb smallgoods enterprise from the ground up. She started with just 40 ewes. Fundamentally it was important to manage the gut flora and health of the flock. “I committed early on that we would never grain feed our stock, even if it meant we needed to make sacrifices with volume of output.” As a first generation sheep famer, Toni needed to pave the way in sales, distribution and value adding. Launching Australia’s first ever lamb smallgoods was more than she ever bargained for, coming from a city marketing role in financial services. However with grace and grit, she has learned everything from boning out lambs, packaging to small goods manufacturing.
Toni launched lamb bacon with her Australian White Lambs in 2016. But as demand grew, today we sell to customers, restaurants and retail outlets known as The Original Lamb Bacon Co.
