Taken from the lower joint of the lamb's leg, organic lamb shank is a hearty cut with distinctive flavour and beautiful, flaking texture. Made up of the leg muscles and their connective tissue as well as the marrow-filled bone, lamb shank has everything going for it as far as deep, complex flavour goes. Just the right amount of fat balances out the meat, keeping it as juicy as can be. Slow cooking renders down all of the internal marbling and collagen to thicken the gravy and add yet more flavour.
Our organic sheep eat a natural diet of grass, along with the clovers and herbs that grow in our West Country meadows. Sheep have evolved to make the very best of a grass diet – when they're not grazing they'll be ruminating and chewing the cud to make sure they get every drop of nutrition. We don't feed our sheep cereals and concentrates because our organic pastures keep them in top condition. Browsing and grazing keep them fit and their muscles active, resulting in meat that has robust texture.

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 £5.
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.

Organic lamb shanks need to cook long and low to bring out their best. So brown them off then pop them into a covered dish with shallots, carrots, a good splash of stock and some rich red wine or a hoppy ale (not too dark). Woody herbs with earthy tones such as thyme and rosemary will bring out the sweetness of the lamb. Cook in a low oven for, ooh, four hours and serve with garlicky mash or herby couscous. For an easy one-pot supper, throw a can of butter beans into the casserole half an hour before the cooking time's up.

Great taste - perfect for Easter Sunday. Great taste - perfect for Easter Sunday.
Tender and excellent flavour. More expensive than local butchers but not hugely so and less expensive than Donald Russell. Important for us to have the provenance for both the meat quality and animal husbandry.Tender and excellent flavour.

Arrived perfectly packed in a box full of ice, and I left the meat in there for two days as it’s like a mini fridge (and I don’t have enough space in my fridge). Really happy with the meat quality too. Fast delivery perfect packaging
So pleased with the quality & taste of everything I have ordered.
