Reared in Somerset on Coombe Farm, the sheep who produce our mutton play a vital part in our farming activity. Without these ewes, we'd have no lambs and no lamb meat. Our ewes will lamb around 8 times in their lives and when it's time for them to retire they come to Coombe Farm Organic so we can celebrate the mature, rich flavour of their meat. Mutton was once far more popular than lamb, but it fell out of favour when the meat of younger animals became more readily affordable. We're glad there's a new-found appreciation for this traditional meat – not only does it have incredible texture and depth of flavour, but it's also another great way to cut out waste and make use of every resource we have.
