Yorkshire's Finest Mutton

Traditionally mutton was always the meat of choice, and far more widely consumed than lamb. However around 70 years ago this inclination began to shift in favour of lamb, due to changing food fashions, and a common misconception that the flavour of mutton was too... muttony!

It’s true, that by virtue of its age and quality of life mutton has a full and rich flavour, its meat is a darker colour than lamb, and has a generous fat content. We believe these qualities to be mutton's crowning glory; with a flavour big and bold enough to withstand some serious spicing, from tagines and curries to a classic shawarma, mutton is a versatile ingredient, and thankfully making a long overdue resurgence in our kitchens.

More about Yorkshire's Finest Mutton

Our mutton comes from hardy hill breeds like the Swaledale, Lonk and Dalesbred. For centuries shepherds have selected these breeds to roam the Yorkshire Dales, as they’re perfectly adapted to the wild conditions; the summer heat and extreme winters on windblown moortops. A lamb becomes hogget on its first birthday and mutton on its second, although arguably the best mutton comes from sheep aged 4-6 years. The flavour of our mutton meat is characterised by an entirely natural diet of grasses, herbs and heather on which the ewes graze as they live wild and free on Yorkshire's ancient landscape.

We further enhance this unique depth of flavour by hanging the mutton on the bone for a minimum of 3 weeks; its then expertly seam butchered by our team to showcase each cut at its best. Our mutton is the finest that’s farmed on The Dales. By virtue of its 2+ years of age spent living wild and free on the Yorkshire Dales, our heritage breed mutton has a full and rich flavour, characterised by an entirely natural diet of grasses, herbs and heather; this unique taste is its crowning glory.

Swaledale mutton is Always Fresh Never Frozen®, expertly butchered to order, vacuum packed, and shipped in recyclable packaging to arrive safely insulated and ready to enjoy.
