Cull ewe, more commonly known as mutton, are retired breeding ewes that will no longer lamb for various reasons. They are "retired" and given weeks, or months on pasture, in order to rejuvenate after their final lambing and regain body fat. 

These ewes are a mature age of anything from 3 to 6 years old, and therefore stronger, more complex in flavour than younger lamb. The additional years grazing add layers of flavour, and the extra fat makes for an incredibly juicy, succulent meat. They also stand up really well to extra hanging and aging, again intensifying flavour and tenderness. 

The misconception that mutton is tough is truly disproved by this beautiful meat, which really can be cooked just like lamb. The leg can either be roasted fast and served pink, or low and slow. 

This mutton is from the Balcaskie Estate in Scotland, and the same flock of ewes that produces some of our certified organic, PFLA lamb.
