Lamb riblets are a lesser known cut of meat, taken from the area near the lamb shoulder and sawed off from the top of the bones that form a rack of lamb. These small rib bones don't have as much meat as we generally find with pork ribs, but they are still worth the trouble to cook because their flavor is outstanding.
Riblets are well marbled and can stand up to strong flavours and marinades but are equally delicious kept simple.
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.
