Fornside Farm, St John’s in the Vale, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 4TS
Tel: 017687 79173
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.
