Free Range Can Be Frozen Grass Fed Great Britain Native Breed
Taken from mature flocks of native breed sheep that have matured on wild pastures, this specialty is perfect for rich and robust slow cooks and curries. The deep flavour and character of the meat reflects the lush pastures our flocks graze upon, while the meat is expertly prepared into generous chunks of wholesome mutton.

The Swaledale is the sheep of the Dales. They adorn the signs for the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and can be seen themselves wandering the wild stretches between the valleys in search of foraging. Ours mature slowly, at their own pace, on the heather that grows on the tops. This gives the meat a sweet as well as robust and almost herbal flavour, with the Swaledale providing some of Yorkshire’s most renowned lamb and mutton.

Tasting Notes: Robust, Complete, Herbal

Dark meat with plenty of character, this mutton is cut into generous chunks on the Butchers block for your home cooking. Ours is sourced direct from flocks left to graze in the near wilderness of the Eastern Dales, before being matured for 14 days in our dedicated dry aging room to tenderise the meat. Increasingly in demand, mutton is a key example of our mission to embrace forgotten butcher's practices.
A slow cooking favourite with a low heat serving to break down the rich meat and add to it delicious flavours. Try in a tagine, slow cooking with onion, garlic, tomatoes and mixed spice, and finishing with dried fruit and almonds. Alternatively this is particularly good served with cous cous or some crusty sourdough on a chilly evening.
