All our Lamb is supplied for us by a traditional butchers who supply only Lincolnshire reared meat. They hang all the Lamb for a minimum one week. This means you can be sure the cuts you buy will be extremely tender and cook with minimal weight loss. All items are packed on the morning of delivery so when we say they are fresh you can be sure they are.
In what quantities is the Lamb available?
They generally come packed by the kilo but roasting joints can be supplied in increments of 0.5 kilo to suit your requirements. Generally a kilo of meat will serve approximately 6 portions.
The Lamb prices look expensive. Why should I pay that much more?
We do not believe our prices are excessive although they may look more expensive than some of the cheaper products available in the supermarkets you will probably find they are better value for money. All our cuts are from prime stock, which gives better meat to start with. When the stock is hung they do lose weight through the loss of fluids. This leaves a better piece of meat for you to cook. Generally you will find as well as a much better flavour you will get less shrinkage when cooking and actually be able to serve more portions per kilo compared to cheaper meat.
Can you say exactly which farm has supplied the Lamb?
Yes we can. On a weekly basis we know exactly which Lincolnshire farm the stock was raised.
Lamb Chops tend to be quite small and don’t have much meat on them so I tend not to buy them. Are yours the same?
Lamb Chop is one of the boss’s favourite cuts of meat and it was a concern when we first talked to the butchers about dealing with them. The boss knew that it was possible to cut chops to a much bigger size than normal and he arranged this with the butcher. That means our Lamb Chops generally weigh about 5oz each which means you get plenty of meat on them and they are better value than the normal Chop.
How many Lamb Shanks will I get to a kilo?
Shanks do vary a little in size but generally speaking they will be 3 or 4 to each kilo depending on the size of the stock available at the time.
Do you supply more unusual cuts? Things like pigs fry, liver, veal etc.
Yes we can supply pretty much any cut you want. If it is not on the menu it is because we had to limit the number of products purely for space reasons. So if there is anything you would like that is not listed please just ask.
