Why Buy New Zealand Lamb?
Why buy New Zealand lamb when the very best ´New Season´ organic British lamb is available from Devon!
Few could argue against buying British farm produce which is also better for the environment and better for the economy than foreign imports. New Season lamb is often sold in March for the Easter traditional roast, however this is only possible if farmers ´force´ ewes into an early breeding cycle so that lambs are born in winter and weaned in the spring.
At Eversfield we work with nature and breed from our ewes at the end of year, lambs are born in March producing new season lamb from the summer onwards.
Once weaned, our young lambs are grouped and given large open meadows to graze in.
Eversfield Organic can offer quality lamb all year round. The most tender new season lamb is available from July to September. Through the winter our lambs are over 6 months old and the meat develops a more mature texture and flavour but still delicious. Older lamb is perfect for slow roasting or braising, and more consumers are requesting a return to Mutton or ‘Hogget’ – which comes from lambs between 12 and 24 months old. We often have older lamb available so if it’s Hogget you’re interested in, we can probably prepare it for you.
