Our aged lamb is the meat from a sheep that is at least two years of age. This patiently-raised traditional meat offers all the reliable taste we expect from lamb, only more so. Most lamb comes from sheep eight to twelve months old. But if the animal is given more time, its meat develops a noticeably more interesting, fuller flavor that is exceptionally satisfying. The grain of the meat becomes finer too – even more pleasing to the tongue.
We occasionally have aged lamb available. Please let us know if you are interested in purchasing some aged lamb and we will put you on a waiting list – it’s a flavorsome meat, perfect for slow roasting, curry or moussaka, Lancashire hotpot and any number of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall (http://rivercottage.net) recipes! Contrary to popular belief, with slow cooking we have never found it to be tough.
