Visually stunning, and on the bone for maximum flavour, the Rack of Lamb represents a choice line up of succulent lamb chops in one place. This is ideal as a smaller roasting joint for two, promising the qualities that set our lamb apart. That is, rich flavours owing to the lush pastures of our farms where our flocks mature on diets of wild flowers, herbs, and natural grasses.

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

Known as CarrÉ d'Agneau in French cuisine and butchery textbooks, the Rib Rack of lamb is cut out at ninety degrees to the spine of the animal, leaving the ribs intact with the prized rib meat attached. The ribs are then French trimmed to leave clean bone at the end of each rib for maximum effect. More commonly simply cut into chops, the Rib Rack is a favourite of chefs and increasingly in demand.
A fantastic alternative to a conventional lamb roast, and ideal for smaller tables, the 7 Rib Lamb Rack showcases both the quality of our English lamb and our skilled artisan butchery. For a truly memorable meal, try cooking 2 racks, then presenting so the ribs interlock for a “Guard of Honour,” served with gratin Dauphinoise, baked carrots, and rosemary scented gravy.
