Description

Taken from mature flocks of heritage breeds 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 upland Yorkshire pastures. 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.

Tasting notes:
Region:

It's good to eat and enjoy mutton, showing farmers that there is a market for their flocks of mature sheep. For many years, mutton has been one of Britain's best kept culinary secrets but that's slowly changing as people embrace the quality of this meat. Our flocks forage and graze naturally, eating a mix of wild grasses, flowers, herbs, and heathers. This gives the mutton its rich, succulent taste which makes this meat such a delicacy. We want to revive the tradition of eating mutton and help more people realise that this supremely enjoyable meat should be enjoyed. Our heritage mutton is sourced from flocks of Suffolk, Swaledale, and North of England Mules.
