In our shop, the most popular meat order for Easter Weekend is definitely lamb. Easter is timed perfectly with Britain’s natural lambing season.
‘Spring Lamb’ means any lamb born in late Winter or early in the year and slaughtered before 1 July. This means that you’re getting the optimum age for the lamb. In good farming, the lamb will have naturally-weaned from the mother and will have already had a healthy grass diet for a month at least. The animal will have grown to a good size for the commercial viability as well as the ethics of its lifespan and, at this size, the taste and tenderness of the meat is at its best.
Farming and breeding have developed wonderfully over the years for a year round supply of exquisite lamb in this country and it’s thanks to these farms that we can stock British Lamb all year. The tradition of Spring lamb at Easter lives on though and a Roast Leg of Lamb or a slow cooked Lamb Shoulder certainly makes for a wonderful centre-piece for an Easter Weekend gathering.
