Have you ever tried Hebridean lamb? 

No! So why not give a Heb a try? – We eat nothing else.

The meat of the Hebridean has a unique and distinct taste. It is ideal as a roasted joint or made into casseroles and tagines. It can be purchased directly from us as boxed meat at certain times of the year. It’s not just us - Hebridean meat is in demand by top chefs and restaurateurs as it lends itself well to gourmet meals.

Our lambs are reared until they are approximately 15 months old, which we feel is the perfect age for the combination of tenderness, flavour and size.  They are allowed to develop and grow slowly, giving a high quality meat, low in fat and full of taste.

This slow to mature way yields a lean but very flavoursome meat with a thin covering of fat.

Slaughter is at our local private abattoir where they prepare the carcass to our specific requirements after hanging it for a week. The carcass is typically 20kg or a little more before cutting up.

For the more adventurous, we can supply the carcass whole, along with a DVD, enabling you to become a home butcher! Click to play a low resolution copy of the DVD  

We are happy to arrange delivery locally or could arrange chilled overnight delivery. We can take orders from about June but the more time we have to plan the better for us and the lambs.

Mutton, which is being rediscovered by discerning meat eaters such as Prince Charles and Hugh Fearnely-Whittingstall, is also available from time to time. You will see on the Mutton Renaissance website that Hugh  recommends Hebrideans as a breed of sheep with an historical reputation for producing delicious mutton.

Please remember - our lambs are reared in the old fashioned way. Purchasing your lamb from us enables us to continue keeping Hebridean sheep, provide conservation grazing and help ensure the survival of rare and traditional breeds.

You can even order and pay for your lamb via credit card over the internet.
