Lamb

Sheep roaming the high pastures of the Yorkshire Dales are a familiar site - shepherds have kept watch over their flocks in The Dales for generations.

Our farmers and smallholders work in harmony with the seasons and select breeds accordingly - the conditions are ideal for hardy breeds that thrive on the lush grasses, wildflowers and herbs that are abundant in The Dales - breeds like the Swaledale, an iconic symbol of The Dales, or the Lonk, Dalesbred and Herdwick.

These varieties are ideally suited to the terrain and able to withstand the cold, often wet and stormy periods in the winter in a way commercial lambs would not. The natural diet and landscape produce a smaller, darker-fleshed lamb with flavours reminiscent of the heathers and herbs on which they have grazed.

We dry-age the carcass to enhance this natural flavour before our expert butchery team prepare a range of classic, time-honoured cuts - from a majestic whole shoulder perfect for slow weekend cookery, roasted over potatoes boulangère style, to chops ideal for a delicious and quick mid-week meal, seared over a high heat with rosemary and garlic. Offal, an often neglected treat is prepared with the same respect, in keeping with our whole-carcass, nose-to-tail ethos.
