Our traditionally reared Blackface Lambs from the heather clad hills here in Dumfries and Galloway are now available for delivery. The hill farmed Blackies lamb much later in the year so it is only now that our ‘Spring Lamb’ is available. They enjoy a free-roaming existence in hefted flocks and are left to mature slowly. The heather on the hills is now in flower which gives our lambs that delicious special sweet flavour both ourselves and our customers love. Nothing quite like it! We offer a choice of three different Blackface Lamb boxes: Compact Blackface Lamb Box, Half Blackface Lamb Box and Whole Blackface Lamb Box or you may prefer to select individual lamb cuts to create your own bespoke box.
We are also delighted to be in full swing with our ever popular 5 year old Blackface Mutton. This meat, which has the greatest depth of flavour is best cooked very slowly, then eaten tender and falling off the bone, perfect for the cooler weather ahead. We offer a choice of two different Blackface Mutton boxes: Half Blackface Mutton Box and Blackface Mutton Compact Box or you may prefer to select individual mutton cuts to create your own bespoke box.
Due to the resounding success of our Saltmarsh Lamb in June, we have are pleased to say that we will have this wonderful product again for one week only in September. As the name suggests, these lambs graze naturally on the coastal marsh lands that are covered by the spring tides. Their diet consists of a variety of wild plants, herbal grasses and minerals found only on these salt marshes. The result is a delicious sweet (not salty) flavour of unique taste and texture. It will be available for delivery on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th September. There are three selections available, Whole Saltmarsh Lamb Box , Half Saltmash Lamb Box & Compact Saltmarsh Lamb Box
As many of you may have read, the Grouse Season this year will be very poor. The snow in late Spring and the very warm Summer have resulted in much smaller numbers than we have enjoyed the past two seasons. If you would like to be added to our waiting list please do not hesitate to telephone us on 01387 730326.
