The lamb shanks are taken from both the front and back legs, and boast melting tenderness if cooked long and slow, with the meat falling away from the bone. Sourced exclusively from heritage breed flocks, and reared on lush pastures, the quality of these shanks reflects the rich diet of wild herbs, grasses, and flowers our sheep enjoy.
Shelf life: minimum 6 days.
A cut increasingly appearing on restaurant menus as the delicious qualities of the Lamb Shanks become more recognised. These particular shanks reflect the outstanding quality of our naturally grazed flocks, and are perfect for slow cooking the year round. If braising, serve with mashed potatoes, shredded cabbage hearts, and redcurrant jelly.
About the cut
Lamb shanks are a staple of British butchery traditions, and remains an extremely popular slow cooking cut. The key is to deliver a neat cross section of bone with a generous portion of marrow, and ample meat attached to this, before trimming the bone for neatness. The shanks are a traditional favourite of butcher's, often reserved in generations passed for the butcher's own pot.
About the breed
we'll choose from our selection of available breeds
It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural diversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
