Established over 50 years ago by John McKay and his son Greg, McKays Family Butchers has built a reputation for excellence in providing high quality meats at reasonable prices to its loyal customers. In July 2022, the store changed hands and the new owners continue this legacy to serve the community.

McKays employs the finest skilled butchers and professional front-of-shop personnel to assist our customers. Old-world traditional butchery methods are used in the handling of meat, breaking down whole animals to get the best cuts for flavour and consistency. Preparation is done right in the middle of our store so customers can see the entire process.

The range of meat products on offer has been expanded and are sourced from leading producers in Australia who believe in, and practice, ethical and sustainable farming. Our range includes tasty home-made sausages, grass fed top-quality roasts and steaks, succulent lamb and free-range pork and hormone-free chicken and turkey as well as pre-made meals. Special cuts are no problem for our
talented butchers and requests are always welcome.

Need advice on meat preparation? Our friendly butchers are experts in which cuts to buy and how to prepare them for your family.

Kevin (“Big Kev”)

Born in the UK, Kevin and his family migrated to Australia when he was 10. He began his apprenticeship at age 14 working alongside commercial butchers and bought his first butcher shop at 19. Besides owning and managing butcher shops, he has gained additional butchering experience working in abattoirs and boning rooms. In July 2022, he joined McKays as their Butcher Manager, where he has taken the quality and variety of meat products to new heights. Kevin also enjoys advancing the skills of his butchery team by sharing his knowledge with them gained over many years in the industry. Kevin’s main focus at McKays is on superior customer service and he takes particular pride in offering his customers his homemade sausages and special cuts. He especially enjoys having a chat with his customers and on occasion, serenading them with his special vocal talents.



Devon was born in New Zealand where he grew up around farms. This fostered his interest in high-quality, clean and ethically sourced meat products. His passion is Butchery and the farm-to-fork concept. His goal is to have his own butchery business someday and use some of the cattle from his family’s small, rural farm in Yea. Devon recently received his Australian citizenship and is now a very proud Aussie! Devon continues to hone his skills at McKays under the guidance of Master Butcher Kevin and the team at McKays.



Like Devon, growing up on a farm and butchering their own meat created Dan’s passion for learning the nuances of professional butchery. Dan began in the meat business at 16 working with professional and dedicated butchers trained in the art of shaping a great cut of meat and eventually became a full-time butcher. Working with the team at McKays Family Butchers, and especially with Big Kev — his mentor – has offered Dan the opportunity to use his butchery skills to the fullest while enjoying the camaraderie of his mates. Dan is also interested in cooking and developing new dishes which he often shares with customers.
