Our sheep are housed during the lambing season of March. The ewes and lambs are then turned out to graze the spring flush of grass. The spring and summer lambs are reared on their mothers milk and grass alone.
When the seasons change the sheep and weaned lambs are fed home produced hay, oats and barley. As members of the Assured Beef and Lamb Scheme our livestock receive the highest animal welfare standards from the moment they are born. The lamb travels only a short distance to a local abbattoir and is then returned to the farm shop. Our fresh lamb is always available from the butchers counter but is especially good in the early summer when the new seasons lambs are ready.
If you have a special occasion or want to order a whole or half lamb please phone ahead and speak to a butcher 01788 832966.
