With outstanding natural succulence and juicy flavour, these Barnsley Chops reflect 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. Their meat is known for its quality, succulence, fine texture and excellent flavour.

Taken from the loin the Barnsley Chop is instantly recognisable for its curvy symmetry, and is a staple of British butchery boards. The loin is considered the most valuable part of the lamb, with the meat here very flavoursome and tender. Matured to concentrate the flavour, these steaks are sourced from small farms in the Dales and Fells to promise only the best quality.
The quality of our free-range lamb makes for delicious chops, perfect for wholesome and nutritious mid week meals. To fry, add to a hot pan on a high heat, cooking for four to five minutes on each side for a medium rare finish, before leaving to rest for a few minutes. Serve with minted peas, grilled tomatoes, and buttery mashed potato for a quick meal with plenty of quality.
