Cut from the hind leg of the lamb carcass, there's nothing to beat an organic leg of lamb for robust flavour and super-succulent meat. With a thin layer of fat beneath the skin, gentle marbling throughout the meat and gelatinous connective tissue between the muscles, this is a rewarding joint that's really easy to cook and makes a really satisfying centrepiece. Leaving the bone in adds flavour as the joint cooks and you get the added benefit of oozing, melty bone marrow adding further juiciness to the meat. You can cook the lamb with aromatic seasonings following this recipe!
Lamb has a bit of a reputation for being a spring delicacy, but we think it should be enjoyed all year round! To make sure we have a constant supply of top-quality meat we've organised our lambing schedule to have lambs born twice a year. They'll feed from their mums for four months before moving on to a fully grass-fed system. Because they live a natural, free-range life our sheep produce substantial meat with really distinctive flavour.

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.

There's nothing like a simple, classic roast to bring out the best in your organic leg of lamb. Begin by searing the lamb all over in a very hot pan until it's golden brown and crisping up. Add a bit of flavour by making a few holes in the skin and pressing cloves of garlic and sprigs of rosemary into the meat. Sprinkle liberally with salt (crunchy lamb skin is delicious!) then roast in a 180˚C oven for about 50 minutes per kilo. When the joint has in internal temperature of 52˚C it'll be rare, 60˚C for medium. Remove from the oven and rest, wrapped in foil for at least 15 minutes. Serve with a generous dollop of punchy mint sauce, seasonal greens and crispy roasties cooked in beef dripping.
