About Our Lamb

Our lamb comes from local farms where it is reared to the highest quality by dedicated, skilled farmers. Our lambs are allowed to mature and develop naturally, while grazing out of doors on the best grass. Our lambs are not fed any growth promoters, hormones or antibiotics. Our lambs are allowed to grow at their own pace and exercise at will, resulting in healthy fit lambs which are nicely but not excessively fatted, meaning that once slaughtered the lamb can be hung for a good ten days.

How to Spot Good Lamb

Look for nice, plump-looking joints which show no signs of drying out, nor of excessive moisture. The colour of the flesh should be a clear, brownish-pink, with no signs of bloodiness. The fat should be parchment white, dry, brittle and waxy. Do not worry about the coloured stamps that you often see on lamb, they are made with vegetable dye and are safe to consume.
