North of England Mule

A Farmers Favourite Cross Breed Sheep

Native Breed

The North of England Mule is hugely popular with sheep farmers. If you’re ever in the Dales, and think that a sheep looks almost like a particular breed, it’s probably a Mule. They are a cross between a lowland ram and a pure bred upland ewe. For our farmers this marries up the best traits of each, that is natural hardiness and the quality of the lamb. Mules promise excellent meat, with generous layers of fat, and deep flavour ideal either for sweet, succulent roasts, or warming slow cooks.

Tasting Notes: Sweet, Mellow, Rounded
