Millbeck Farm Herdwick Lamb is deliciously tasting, delicately flavoured and reared completely naturally on the Langdale Fells of the English Lake District. Our lamb is not mass-produced, factory farmed or force fed but slow matured – it is ready, when it is ready.

The stress free environment and high standard of animal welfare produces a meat of exceptional eating quality, with a fuller flavour and succulent texture.

You can now order your Herdwick Lamb direct from the farm on which it is produced – saving you money, retaining all the fell farm freshness and helping to preserve the livelihood of Lakeland farmers.

Our lamb can be ordered whole and half. A whole lamb weighs between 14kg and 18kg (approx 30 to 40lbs). Carved by professional butchers into convenient cuts and bagged for freshness, all the meat is ready to cook or suitable for freezing.

At Fornside Farm we are now selling our own Herdwick lamb and aim to have some available to order every 3-4 weeks. The lambs are taken to a local abattoir and butcher. The meat is hung for a week in the traditional way in order to tenderise the meat and enhance the flavour. The lamb is then professionally butchered into convenient cuts and bagged so that all the meat is ready to cook or home freeze.

Meat can be collected from the farm or sent direct from the butcher by overnight courier.
