Authentic Shetland Lamb, an exclusive product, is a highly valued delicacy by many of the leading chefs in the country. Together with some local producers we bring to you a niche breed of lamb which is tender, flavoursome and heather-fed.
Why Shetland Lamb?
Shetland lambs live an extremely healthy and natural lifestyle as they journey through the many voes and over the numerous hills which make Shetland such an ideal place to breed exceptional quality meats.
The meat is naturally lean with an exquisitely succulent texture and a sweet aromatic taste which enliven the senses.
The slow-growth process on the heathery landscapes and seaweed-rich shores allows for much lower levels of shrinkage during the cooking process.
Quality Standards and Traceability
High quality standards are stringently maintained throughout the rearing process right through to delivery. We guarantee the highest standards of husbandry are maintained during the lambs' lives causing them as little stress as possible providing healthier meats rich in Omega 3.
Shetland Lamb is protected under the European Commission Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) scheme meaning that any true Shetland Lamb must be bred and finished on the Shetland Islands themselves.
Full traceability is available on our lambs including information on the croft of origin and the geographical features of the area in which the lambs were raised.
Shetland Lamb is available from October to March.
