A British favourite, with an abundance of lean, succulent meat ideal for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and well suited to cooking with aromatic rosemary, this lamb leg with the bone in is sure not to disappoint. Skilfully prepared by our Master Butcher and left on the bone for maximum flavour, the impressive sweet taste reflects the quality of the lush pastures where our flocks mature on diets of natural grasses.
This plentiful whole lamb leg on the bone is of the finest quality and is perfect for Sunday lunches and special occasions alike, with generous helpings of rich, succulent meat on the bone for the best flavour. For the best finish, roast long and slow so the sweet meat can tenderise gradually and serve with traditional roast potatoes, homemade Yorkshire puddings, and fresh mint sauce.
Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure that our lamb is up to the exceptional standard you’ve come to expect from The Black Farmer.
The Black Farmer have been working with the best local suppliers since our inception. We source highest-quality lamb from the South West of England, which is fed on grass and free to graze the lush fields that abound in the area. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating, which reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.
