Cut (obviously!) from the forequarter of the animal, organic shoulder of lamb is a joint with a really distinctive character. Open-grained and intensely flavoured, the muscles of the joint are subtly marbled and interspersed with melting fat and connective tissue. Leaving the bone in contributes even more deeply savoury flavour to the meat and, when cooked, the outer fat and skin will crisp up to a crunch. View the perfect how-to recipe here.
All of Coombe Farm Organic's lamb comes from our hardy flock of cross-bred sheep. The breeds we've chosen make the most of our abundant West Country pasture, thriving on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs. Growing slowly, the lambs build heart immune systems and strong skeletons. All of this influences the way their meat tastes and cooks.

No. You can leave a message with your order telling us where you would like to have your box placed. It would be best placed somewhere cool or at least in the shade – especially during the hotter months of the year.

Our couriers will send you a text message or email, which ever you prefer, giving you an hour slot when your box will arrive. If that doesn’t suit you, some options will be provided to make your delivery more convenient.

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.

Because our lambs have are free range, their muscles – especially their shoulders – have worked hard. So easy does it when it comes to roasting this joint. For a slight twist on a classic, sear your shoulder of lamb in a hot pan until the skin is brown and sizzling. Make a paste of around 6 anchovy fillets and smear it over the skin. The anchovies will dissolve during the long cook and act as seasoning. Set your joint on top of a good handful of peeled shallots or red onions in a roasting tin and pour in enough lamb or chicken stock to fill the dish halfway. Add a good glug of sherry vinegar, some big sprigs of woody herbs and a grinding of black pepper. Cook for at least four hours in a low oven, topping up the liquid if necessary. Serve with the creamiest mash and fragrantly spiced red cabbage.

The veg box was disappointing..... lettuce was old and wilted potatoes soft apples bruised and beetroot not ripe , didn’t feel it was value for money despite this the meat was 2nd to none .... fresh and very tasty
Coombe Farm products are excellent! Timely, tasty and terrific service. Five stars.
Absolutely gorgeous food, always delivered on the date ordered for.
Organic, not rip-off prices, good value for money instead :-)
I have been buying from them for years now, always helpful if I phone them, and a lot of gluten free items which is very important as I'm celiac.
Finding fair priced, organic and gluten free all in one is easy with Coombe Farm, a nightmare with most other places!!!
