A smaller lamb roasting joint, also suited to pot roasting, and complete with the robust flavour of our lamb, sourced from the valley tops and river meadows of the Yorkshire Dales. Prepared using traditional seam butchery to give a neat joint of lamb leg perfect for smaller tables or appetites, and ideally served with classic roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and mint sauce.

The Texel is a relative newcomer to these Isles, but have been a huge hit with chefs, butchers, and farmers alike. Thick set and tough, they can thrive anywhere, producing some of the most consistent lamb with an even covering of fat, and meat that is sweet and delicate. Often to be seen in larger flocks, occasionally nibbling on turnips and sugar beet, this lamb is a great all rounder, perfect for steaks, chops and roasting joints.

Tasting Notes: Delicate, Sweet, Rounded

This joint is cut using the art of seam butchery. That means when cutting the butcher tries to preserve entire muscles, not breaking up the natural state of the meat, and therefore preserving it as best as possible for cooking. It's a time consuming process, one that takes great skill to cut immaculate joints, but well worth the effort ensuring perfect finishes to the meat when cooked.
A favourite of chefs for serving roasted meat to smaller tables, this joint boasts the character and flavour of the traditional leg, but is much smaller in stature. As such it only requires a short time for roasting, while the seam butchery preserves the natural state of the meat for succulent texture. Serve with roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and rosemary scented gravy.
