Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our lamb shanks are immaculate. All our cuts are skillfully prepared by hand in time-honoured, traditional fashion. The high standard of the cuts helps with flavour, ease-of-cooking, and presentation. When choosing lamb, look for firm, fine-grained meat with a velvety texture; it should be moist, rather than dry or slimy.
The Black Farmer works with the best local suppliers. 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. We show our passion for high welfare by promoting traditional farming methods and encouraging a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This approach reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.
Our lamb shanks are vacuum packed to keep the meat fresh for longer. This also makes them suitable for home freezing, just be sure to defrost thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.
