Roasts don't get much more traditional than when they have an organic shoulder of mutton as their centrepiece. This is a seriously delicious cut, packed with intense flavour and offering just the right amount of bite. Mutton is renowned for being hearty and earthy and those are qualities you'll find in abundance when you tuck into this joint. To make things simpler, our skilled butchers have removed the slightly awkward shoulder bone so carving will go off without a hitch. We love this Gill Meller recipe
At Coombe Farm Organic, all of our livestock is reared in high-welfare systems and our land is managed according to stringent Soil Association rules. That means the pasture our livestock grazes isn't treated with chemicals so their meat is clean and untainted. Our flocks of sheep live outdoors year-round, only coming indoors very briefly to lamb. In the summer they eat fresh meadow grass and in the winter they're supplemented with hay and silage made on the farm. Living on this diet lends our mutton an authentic sweet and herby flavour that's a true taste of tradition.

No. You can leave a message with your order telling us where you would like to have your box placed.

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.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.
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.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Your organic shoulder of mutton is a versatile cut that can be roasted in the traditional way and served with crispy roast potatoes and a generous dollop of mint sauce. Or it can be rubbed with aromatic spices and pot roasted until it's so tender it's falling apart. One of our favourite ways to cook it is to marinate it overnight in yoghurt and Indian spices before giving it a leisurely roast in the oven until it's cooked through (40 minutes per 500g, plus 40 minutes extra at 170°C fan) then throwing it on the hot grill of the barbecue to sizzle and char. Serve with flatbreads cooked over the coals, a herby salad and some dhal.

Very good value for money, I slow-roasted this for nearly 3 hours. The flavour is strong with that lovely grassy undertone, delicious. The mutton was still not really tender after all that slow cooking, but that may be my cooking technique! With...Very good value for money, I slow-roasted this for nearly 3 hours. The flavour is strong with that lovely grassy undertone, delicious. The mutton was still not really tender after all that slow cooking, but that may be my cooking technique! With the left-overs I made a Lamb Pasanda - perfect.

Very helpful on the phone . The delivery is very prompt and the chicken I ordered is excellent . It is so good to know it in organic . I love the bone broth they do , very tasty .
Yeah - delivery was fine and packing was good. But you should ignore any rubbish legislation about recycling. There is a lot of packaging and all of it can be collected by you and re-used for my next order. You might say you are not permitted by govt regulations - but I say why should we listen to people who clearly do not have our interests at heart. We shouls take back our power and be our own authority and just be good - common sense individuals. I want to recycle this material - so can you collect it from me and use it again - I won't tell if you won't - who's in charge here.....
