Mutton's deep, rich flavour is shown off to its best with this impressive cut
For meals where a bit of drama's required, pick a 3-bone rack of organic mutton and really impress your guests. The rack combines the succulent eye meat (the bit you normally see on a juicy chop) with a delicious layer of fat that melts through and bastes the meat as it cooks. Cooking this cut on the bone not only assures it stays moist, but it also contributes extra flavour to the meat during roasting.
At Coombe Farm Organic, our mutton comes from ewes who've retired from our breeding flock. That means they've grown to maturity naturally, have well-developed muscles and a strong skeleton. All of these things ensure their meat is strongly flavoured (but not 'gamey') and has excellent texture (but isn't stringy). Mutton's a distinctive meat that's having a bit of a renaissance right at the moment. With a cut like the 3-bone rack, you'll soon understand why.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

Cooking your 3-bone rack of mutton to perfection isn't enormously tricky but you do have to keep your eye on the clock. We find that the timings given for cooking rack often result in very rare meat, so having a meat thermometer to hand is the ideal way of knowing when to take it out of the oven. After searing the skin of the rack until it's sizzling golden brown, roast it in a 200°C oven for about 20 minutes. When the internal temperature of the meat reaches 60°C your mutton will be pink and juicy in the middle so you can take it out when it's at about 55°C and give it a good 20-minute rest wrapped in foil. The residual heat from the bones will continue to cook it as it relaxes. Carve and serve with some rich red-wine gravy, celeriac purée and honey-roasted carrots for an understated but delicious supper.

I've never eaten a rack of Mutton before and it was lovely!
After I cooked the meat I was surprised at how different it was than goat I've eaten before. It tasted fresh and rich in flavour.I've never eaten a rack of Mutton before and it was lovely!

The service from Coombe Farm is always excellent - and what fantastic products. Knowing it's all properly farmed and therefore earth friendly is also very reassuring.
Ordered bone broth online. Website easy to use. Delivery arrived on the day and in the time slot specified. The pouches arrived still frozen thanks to the really excellent packaging. I also appreciated that all their packaging is recyclable!
The invoice was in a nice little folder, which also gave some useful information on how to store, defrost and heat the broth. I was quite impressed. I feel I’ve ordered a product that has been carefully prepared and shipped real with care, and that the company has a high standard of customer service. I definitely recommend. Oh, and the bone broth is delicious too :)
