Falling into a career as a butcher in a small border town on the Murray river, Troy Wheeler (Meatsmith) soon yearned for a greater understanding of where produce comes from. Eager for a greater understanding of his craft, he made the move to Melbourne and after rising the ranks at one of the city’s best butchers, he embarked on a journey with renowned chef Andrew McConnell to create one of Australia’s most bespoke butchers focusing on the best quality heritage meats.
