Whole Shetland Lamb box

We have sourced the most incredible Shetland flock and secured a very limited number.

Shetland is a subarctic archipelago in the Northern Isles of Scotland, situated in the Northern Atlantic, between Great Britain, the Faroe Islands and Norway. The islands lie some 80 km to the northeast of Orkney, 170 km from Scotland and 300 km west of Norway but are actually further north than Oslo!

Shetland Lamb is a PDO product meaning it has specially protected status a bit like how champagne can only come from one region, the animals themselves are much smaller than other breeds but slow grown and very tender the meat is very healthy with high levels of Conjugated Linoleic Acid which studies have shown can be protective against cancer.

The animals graze naturally on herb rich pasture, the wild heather, and grassland stretching down to the sea, as this distinctive breed have done since ancient times. 

This whole lamb box is approximately 8kg and contains the following:

2 legs,

2 shoulder,

1 rolled saddle

2 french trimmed rack

5 neck chops

2 neck fillet rack

2 lamb kidneys

1 rump roast joint


Shetland lamb is smaller  than regular lamb, this is a luxury item and the whole box comes in at approximately 8 kgs. 


All of our lamb is 100% grass fed. We only buy from farms that have achieved Pasture for Life certification, this ensures that the animals are only ever fed pasture containing grasses, wildflowers and herbs. This way of farming is as close to nature as possible the animals are living in their natural habitat, exhibiting natural behaviors and eating their natural diet with minimal human intervention.

Most of our lamb is also sourced from farms that practice Holistic Planned Grazing practices that help to regenerate the soil and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by farming in ways that cause biodiversity to increase and plants growth to increase making the soil more resilient to flooding and drought.
