Description

Taken from mature flocks of Swaledale ewes from two years old onwards, this is a shoulder cut of mutton with the bone removed to leave a 'cushion'. This allows for easy carving whilst still maintaining the rich meaty flavour characterised by these ewes' diet of wild grasses, herbs, and flowers on the tops of the North York Moors. This is a delicious alternative to more popular roasting joints, and a fantastic introduction to our English mutton.

About the cut

Shoulder

An absolutely fantastic cut, one that is slowly becoming more popular as people rediscover the qualities mutton has. Ours is sourced direct from flocks left to graze in the near wilderness of the moors of Yorkshire. Matured for seven days in our dedicated dry aging room to tenderise the meat, this mutton shoulder is cut with the bone in for a joint rustic in appearance, but providing consistent flavoursome cooking.

About the breed

Swaledale

Hill Sheep Grazed On Wild Heather

Tasting notes:
robust, complete, herbal
Region:
Yorkshire Dales National Park

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.
