Insist on the best fresh MiddleMay Lamb

Home grown in Northumberland from happy, contented lambs

Our lambs are home-bred and naturally reared. MiddleMay Lamb comes from a cross breed of Clun Forest Leicester female which are then crossed with Hampshire tup, a traditional British sheep. They are situated in our Ponteland based farm.

The lambs stay with their mothers and are milk-fed for at least 5 months, living outdoors grazing contentedly on grassland which has been permanent pasture for over 200 years.

The pasture is ideal for this variety of sheep and includes herbs and spices which help to give the lamb its unique flavour. The feeds including oats and turnips, on which our lambs are reared, are home-grown and organically produced without the aid of artificial fertilisers or crop sprays.

Roast Lamb

Once you've tasted MiddleMay Lamb you'll realise that it's something special. The unique flavour and quality of lamb is due to the way we rear and care for our stock.

Natural, succulent and delicious - we think you'll find our lamb mouthwateringly different - great flavour, lovely texture and colour and, cooked with care, it's…"guaranteed not to shrink"

We strongly believe that our lamb is so good because it comes from well looked after happy, content lambs. MiddleMay Lamb is fantastic for a wide range of dishes, and there's a choice of cuts and recipes available; from traditional Sunday joint to fragrant stir fry.
