What is the key to producing really delicious lamb?
Great British Food, Awards Winner 2019
LAVINTON lamb wowed the judges in the Great British Food Awards 2019, scooping the top prize to be crowned Britain’s Best Meat!
Award winning LAVINTON lamb is native breed lamb produced by shepherdess, Sophie Arlott, in rural Lincolnshire. She pays particular attention to which breeds of sheep produce the best -flavoured lamb. Sophie has spent years carefully selecting and cross breeding different native and primitive breeds for the perfect combination and has now hit on the perfect formula. This lamb is completely unique to LAVINTON.
Nathan Outlaw, two-star Michelin chef, who judged the meat category in the Great British Food awards, even described it as "faultless".
“Amazing quality meat. We cooked it low and slow and the shoulder was really moist and tender. This lamb had a delicious sweet flavour and the fat was very good.
An excellent piece of meat – faultless”. Nathan Outlaw
Lavinton’s lambs save wildlife and wild places
Lavinton are delighted to be working in partnership with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. Our lamb is grazed on some of their nature reserves, including Porters Lodge Meadows and Bottleneck and Jackson's Meadows.
Traditional grazing is an essential management tool for a range of grassland habitats and it is great to know that our lamb not only tastes great but also helps to save some of Lincolnshire most precious landscapes.
We’d like to think that our partnership with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust helps to support their work to continue to safeguard these special places for future generations.
