From Lauriston's North Ronaldsay Sheep

Organic, Biodynamic, Frozen


The North Ronaldsay sheep is classified as a primitive, short tail sheep and is extremely rare.  Its robustness and hardiness is ideal for the estuarine, salty marsh meadows at Lauriston.  We have about one hundred and fifty breeding ewes and five rams.
The ram lambs are usually taken to a very small local abattoir when they are around fifteen months old.  They are not castrated so the meat has a wonderful full flavour.  It is hung for ten days



Lamb neck is a fabulously underrated and inexpensive cut of lamb. It is a tough cut that requires very long, slow cooking. Although It may look as though there isn't much meat, it yields a surprisingly generous amount once every scrap is tender.
