Hoggett is sheep meat, 12-24 months old. Ours are reared on the Howgill Fells and fattened on the lowlands around Sedbergh. Unlike lamb, which is often slaughtered shortly after weaning, our Hoggett benefits from the flavours of the grasses, legumes and herbs of the Howgill Fells.
Producing hoggett allows us to employ a very low intensity farming system, lambing in late April onto rich spring grass and bringing them down onto the lowlands of Sedbergh for winter provides optimal animal welfare conditions.
Produced and processed locally, our hoggett has travelled less than 50 food miles in its whole life, therefore it has 100% traceability and the lowest possible carbon footprint.
Unless requested otherwise, our Hoggett is delivered frozen, vacuum packed and labelled. The box will include:
2 x half shoulder, de-boned & rolled
2 x fore shanks
2 x half leg, de-boned & rolled
2 x hind shanks
14 x cutlets
10 x loin chops
2 x breasts de-boned & rolled
If you would like the Hoggett cut differently, please let us know. If you would like mince or lamb burgers please let us know.
Hoggett & Lamb are slaughtered every Tuesday to order and available for dispatch or collection the following Friday.
