Arizona Outback Emu Oil Co. – Lance and Jackie Talley began raising Emus commercially for their meat, feathers oil and leather in 1995. They began with one pair of emus and at one time had 250 birds. The market for emu red meat was a slow one, though the emu meat is very low in cholesterol but the cost to process and inspect was expensive. So, Arizona Outback downsized their flock and now gets their emu oil from an American Emu Association certified refinery. Arizona Outback began experimenting with the oil and developed their own recipes for handmade soaps by trial and error sharing samples amongst friends, and includes a line of lotions made with emu oil, goat milk and other fine oil. Lance also makes custom mesquite cutting boards, spoons and spatulas with a decorative touch of turquoise.
