Mutton Chump Chops from the Carmarthenshire hills

These come from the very top of the leg of mutton and make the most tender steaks.  Our secret is (1) older animals, (2) grass-feeding and (3) super-ageing after slaughter.  Wernlwyd (Eng: Grey Alders) is not certified organic but we employ organic principles.  Our pasture has not been reseeded for years, most of it for generations.  Over that time it has become naturalised with wild grasses and flowers.  That brings higher welfare and improves quality.

Our mutton

We look for a minimum of two years of age before slaughter.  Slow growth means a better joint of meat.  Not only that, but we’ve hung this mutton in the chiller for no less than fifty-six days. At that point something extraordinary begins to happen.  The increase in tenderness is dramatic.  The taste becomes deeper and more complex.  The meat enzymes have done their work! We begin to approach, if you will forgive the expression, ‘meatopia’.

Our Environment

Contrary to what you might hear, environmentally the impact of raising sheep and cattle is low. Our animals hang out in fields during the summer and eat silage, harvested grass, in winter.  They are NEVER ‘finished’ on grain in ‘feed-lots’.  After all, sheep and cattle are grazing animals.  Their ruminant digestive system has four stomachs, far more complex than ours.  They are inefficient at digesting grain but perfectly-designed to extract every last ounce of nutrition out of grass and meadow flowers.  26% of the earth’s surface is pasture. By the grace of God ruminants convert what we cannot eat slowly but surely into something for our table we can delight in.

Here’s another point.  These days produce can be flown half-way around the world to satisfy modern food fads. When you choose our super-aged beef or mutton, you are buying local, from farm to fork, and keeping those food miles to the bare minimum.

Our Pricing

Our meat costs no more than what supermarkets charge for their highest quality.  But the similarity ends there.  Older stock means more flavour and longer hanging brings vastly improved taste. By buying direct from the farm, you know what you are eating has been well cared for.  And we know our customers appreciate the very best.

Mutton Steak

We pack two steaks into a recyclable plastic vacuum pack and fast-freeze them.  Defrost completely before cooking.
