Ethical Australian Cow Hide Rugs
Provenir is bringing Australian made ethical cow hide rugs to Australian homes.
Provenir processes cattle on Australian farms to improve animal welfare and produce exceptional quality meat.
We value and respect the whole animal as a processor and complete body butchery.
We learn so much about the hard work and passion of our farmers and what goes into raising amazing quality cattle when we visit our farmers.
This makes us more determined to value each part of the animal. That’s exactly what our cow hide rug product line is about.
Each and every cow hide rug is unique
There is nothing more exclusive than one of our limited edition rugs from Speckle Park, Hereford, and Hereford X cows from John and Alla’s farm Apsley Downs in c, NSW.
100% Natural & Local Tanning Process
After being processed on farm, our Provenir hides are skillfully tanned at Greenhalgh Tannery near Ballarat. Greenhalgh’s Tannery, a family-owned and operated tanning business, has been in operation for more than 140 years. It tans premium quality saddlery leather and craft leather much the same way as previous generations.
Bruce and Ross Greenhalgh, fifth-generation Greenhalgh brothers use many of the traditional tanning techniques of their forefathers. They also make use of modern technological advancements in tanning.
Since 1865, Greenhalgh’s Tannery is still in operation. It is a vegetable-based tanning operation. This means that wattle bark, rather than chemicals, is used to give the hide preservative and pliable properties. This traditional process requires a lot of skill, knowledge, and time. It takes over three months to complete the hide tanning process, as opposed to the 72-hour process of chemical tanning

Provenir farmers utilise low-stress handling techniques and raise their livestock on open pastures within a familiar herd structure; allowing the animals to express their natural character.
Instead of the livestock being transported, the abattoir comes to the farm. Eliminates unnecessary stress on animals associated with live transport. Less stress means less adrenalin produced, and thus more retained glycogen stores in the meat, leading to exceptional eating quality, taste and tenderness.
Provenir oversees the whole operation from purchasing livestock on-farm direct from our partnering farmers to the on-farm processing, into our butchery and on to you. By processing on-farm and utilising the latest in digital traceability technology we are able to provide full transparency and guaranteed provenance.
Grass-fed & free
Provenir partners with farmers who raise their livestock free-range and grass-fed.
For cattle and lamb, this means they are fed on natural grasses, pasture, hay or silage.
Our on-farm process and artisan butchery techniques ensure that the quality of the meat is retained and maximised throughout the whole process.
No added hormones,
herd antibiotics, or
Provenir farmers raise their livestock naturally: they do not feedlot, nor do they add hormones or antibiotics to the feed as growth promotants.
