A British favourite, with an abundance of lean, succulent meat ideal for a Sunday roast or popping on the barbecue, and well suited to cooking with aromatic rosemary. Skillfully prepared by our Master Butcher, de-boned, and butterflied into the characteristic flat shape, the impressive sweet taste reflects the quality of the lush pastures where our flocks mature on diets of wild flowers, herbs, and natural grasses.
The Badger Face Sheep is among the oldest native breeds of Wales. It was originally named “Defaid Idloes” after St Idloes, who was sainted in the 7th century. It has enjoyed a renaissance since the mid 1970s when farmers in Mid Wales established a breed society. the Badger Face breed has two colours, Torddu and Torwen. Torddu means black belly and is mainly white with a black belly and eye stripes, and the Torwen, meaning white belly, shows the reverse colouring with smaller eye stripes. Their meat is known for its quality, succulence, fine texture and excellent flavour.

A staple of British butchery trade, essential to preparing a good lamb leg is ensuring the meat is of the highest quality. We source from traditional farms that have been producing heritage breed lamb for generations, with proven consistency. That makes for the best meat, with ample fat cover but lean texture. The leg is carefully cut, deboned, and laid flat for a neat joint of flavoursome meat.
This lamb leg is of the finest quality and as such is perfect for both Sunday lunches and special occasions, with generous helpings of rich, succulent meat for the best flavour. For the best finish, roast long and slow so the sweet meat can tenderise gradually. Alternatively try marinating and popping on the barbecue for a delicious special.
For perfect cooking and measuring internal temperatures, we recommend a ‘Meater + Wireless Thermometer’. Available to buy here.
