We source our lamb from a few different suppliers depending on the time of year.
Some of the lamb is supplied by Hugh from our smallholding near Calverhall. The lambs are completely grass-fed and as such provide great tasting, tender meat.
We also take a lot of lamb from some neighbours on the estate — Alex & Tracey Pyke of Manor Farm, Calverhall. These lambs are reared to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards — as with all of the produce we buy in we look for suppliers who have the same ethos as we do, the Pyke family fit this bill perfectly.
Lamb is bought into us in whole carcasses and can be ordered in whole/half boxes to fill your freezer. We present it on the counter in many different forms. Some of our most popular lamb products are our delicious lamb burgers & our minted lamb koftas — perfect with a flat bread, salad & a dollop of tatziki!
