As seen on The Hairy Bikers - September 2nd 2009.  iPlayer  Episode 5, and for ideas for 2 Year old Hogget Episode 4.  Recipe that won the cook off for the Taste of Dumfries and Galloway.

Many customers hanker after the real taste of mutton. We keep a few wether lambs back each year and run them on the hill for another summer (2 year olds), we also carefully fatten five year old ewes. The end product is superb, giving big meaty chops and joints that are so tender if slow cooked overnight.

Our 5 year old mutton has won two awards : Best Seasonal Product in Britain in the 2006 Taste of Britain awards, and best meat product in Dumfries and Galloway's Savour the Flavour taste awards. Soon to be featured on The Hairy Bikers, the photo features Dave (the shepherd), Karen and Kathryn, Silvy and Ben and David and Si (The Hairy Bikers). Blackface Sheep

The 2 Year Old Mutton is more akin to lamb, though with the richer flavour of its maturity.  Heather Fed.  The 2 Year Olds are available from August until Easter.

If you'd like a leg, rack or loin only please go to the pick and mix or call us on 01387 730326.

Customer comments

Blackface lamb is some of the most delicious I have ever tasted. There is no question in my mind that the diet of heather and moorland grasses give it a distinctive and special flavour. The 2 year old mutton hung for a full two weeks is particularly outstanding.
