What is this product?

Our meat lambs are Charolais Lleyn cross with Grey Faced Dartmoor. They are slower growing than pure commercial crosses, but the purpose of the Charolias / Lleyn mother is to grow well on grass without needing additional feed.

These lambs have been born our land, raised on their mothers milk until mid summer when the lush spring grass starts to lose its nutrition. We then wean them onto a hay meadow after a last cut of hay that is left late for the wildflowers to set seed. The lambs then grow on all winter with plenty of space and grass, substituted with occasional oats and hay when the ground is frozen.

Our lambs are condition scored to ensure they are growing and developing a thin layer of fat that will keep the meat juicy and tender whilst cooking.

What will 1 share get me?

Each share in this batch will get you :

  • 2 half legs of lamb
  • 2 half shoulders of lamb
  • Rack of lamb
  • Lamb chops
  • Boned & rolled breasts
  • 1 or 2 packs of lamb mince/cubes

Our lambs are slightly older than supermarket lambs, so cuts may seem a little larger. Joints such as leg and shoulder are halved for easier cooking based on a family of 4-6. They are hung for about a week to develop the flavour slightly without being overpowering.

A Half Lamb is cut and packed in trays similar to how you would expect from a supermarket. It comes in one medium size box weighing between 9 – 12kg and should roughly fit into 1 draw of a standard upright freezer.

The meat will usually be delivered chilled if you have pre-ordered.

We suggest that you freeze it immediately.

We don’t generally supply liver or hearts in the box unless you ask for these as we typically collect these before the meat is hung.
