WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result.

WHAT IS ORGANIC LAMB?​

All of our organic lamb comes from free-range animals born and reared in our lush, sustainable West Country pastures. Many lambs are grown quickly, fed on grain to ‘finish’ them at speed, we believe that it’s better for animals to grow at the rate nature intended and lead active lives.

Ingredients

FOR THE MINTY RAITA

  • 300g Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1/2 large cucumber, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/2tsp sea salt
  • 1tsp Steenbergs organic minty lamb rub
  • a small handful fresh mint, finely chopped
  • a swirl of olive oil

FOR THE LAMP CHOPS

Method

  1. Rub the lamb chops with little olive oil, then sprinkle on the minty lamb rub. Repeat on the other side. Ideally leave to marinate in the fridge for an hour before cooking
  2. Prepare the minty raita by combining all of the ingredients in a bowl and topping with a swirl of olive oil and a sprinkling of minty rub. Place in the fridge until needed
  3. Prepare the barbecue or grill to a high heat. Season the lamb chops with a good grind of sea salt and then cook the lamb chops for 4-5 minutes on each side (for medium rare). Leave to rest covered with foil for 5 minutes 
  4. Sprinkle on some more minty rub and then serve with the minty raita 
  5. Delicious with flatbreads and salads for a summer feast

Frequently asked questions

  • Our lambs at Coombe Farm Organic feed on our abundant West Country pasture, thriving on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs.

  • Organic lamb has to be certified by an approved organic body to a number of set organic standards. These include the space that an organic lamb animal has to graze, the way that it’s food is grown, without the use of pesticides and or unapproved fertilisers. The standards for organic lamb also cover use of medicines and other points that improve the welfare and conditions throughout the life of the animal and on through slaughter and butchery.

  • When choosing lamb to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are several studies that suggest organic meat is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. We believe organic lamb tastes better than commercially farmed alternatives, tasting ‘meaty’, rich, sweet and decadent. 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 hearty immune systems and strong skeletons. All of this influences the way their meat tastes and cooks, we really believe that happy animals result in the best quality and best tasting meat.
