The Shropshire breed of lamb we feel is special - we find it succulent, tasty and renowned for its quality and traditional flavour.


This is one of the oldest breeds in the country - and not available to buy generally- we feel you really are getting something special!

We are members of the Shropshire Sheep Breed Association where our pedigree flock is registered.


We sell prime quality Shropshire lamb produced from our own flock and reared on our own pastures on the South West Edge of the Peak District National Park.


Our lamb is available as:- 

  • Half lamb boxes
  • Whole lamb boxes,
  • All fully butchered with all joints individually wrapped - ready for your fridge or freeze
  • Our lamb is typically 12 months or more old - and are only available seasonally - usually available from February onwards.


If you are interested in ordering, please send us a message via the enquiry form on the Contact Us page - or if you would like to be put on our mailing list for noticfication of when our lamb will be available.


If you coming to stay with us in our holiday cottages and would like purchase some locally sourced lamb from the Peak District home with you - then please let us know, and we will see if we can arrange for some to be ready for you to take home.


Any lamb purchased really helps support this traditional special breed of sheep, and has helped to get the breed out of Rare Breed Status to Tradional Breed Status with the Rare Breed Survival Trust - and this is very much appreciated to support our wonderful flock of special Shropshire Breed Sheep - Thank you.
