Conygree Lamb

Lamb Boxes

We sell boxes of fresh lamb ready for the oven or freezer. Each tasty box includes a range of popular joints plus some mince, cubes or burgers.

We can vary the boxes to suit your needs working with our butcher to prepare special cuts as desired. However, we recommend our most popular boxes as follows:

Fair Price

Our lamb is not only great tasting but it is also great value. Although we do not aim to compete on price with the cheaper supermarkets or imported lamb products you will find our price more than matches other quality products on the high street.

Quality Assurance

All our sheep are reared to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards. The farm is managed organically: we are assured by Organic Farmers & Growers and the majority of our land is in the Environmental Stewardship Scheme to benefit farmland birds and wildflowers. Our lambs graze the wildflower meadows here at Conygree all year, maturing naturally. Our pasture fed production is certified by Pasture for Life.  For more information visit: Quality Assurance.

Well Hung Meat

All our lamb, hogget and mutton is hung for a minimum of eight days to allow the meat to mature and tenderise before being jointed and packed by a local master butcher.

Traditional Taste

Many people agree lamb from traditional breeds raised on species rich grassland is the best they have ever tasted. Our customers certainly think so. A good amount of fat and marbling is crucial to the taste.

Health Benefits

Research has now shown that meat from slower growing animals which graze on species rich grass is a healthier alternative than meat from grain fed animals. Pastured meat is:

  • Lower total fat levels than meat from grain-fed animals and is also lower in saturated fat content.  It has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a lower, more balanced (and healthier) ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Significantly higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than meat from grain-fed animals and higher levels of vaccenic acid, which can be turned into CLA
  • Higher vitamin and mineral levels than meat from grain-fed animals. Particularly rich in vitamins A and E, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium

Many of the health benefits associated with pasture-fed meat decline after only a few weeks of grain (maize, soya, cereal) feeding. Grass fed should mean 100% grass fed - Pasture for Life certifies this.
