The Black Farmer whole leg of lamb is a thing of beauty. As a large cut, leg of lamb is ideal for Sunday roasts or dinner parties with up to ten people. The meat is lean and tender, in line with its status as a prime cut. If you’re looking to impress with a restaurant-style dish, lamb leg is a fine choice.

A whole leg of lamb weighs over 2kg.  If your order is for our 1.2kg option, it will be a half leg of lamb!

Remove the lamb leg from the fridge at least an hour before cooking. Rub lightly in rosemary and olive oil, then spike with rosemary and thinly sliced garlic. Roast in the oven to your liking, before basting with herbs and foaming butter. Make sure you leave time for the joint to rest and check seasoning. Serve with fondant potatoes, vichy carrots and sliced runner beans. To add a traditional and delicious final touch, rustle up some homemade English mint sauce for the table. We suggest serving the lamb pink; with a bit of practice, you’ll get it perfect every time. 


Even the best meat still requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure our whole lamb leg is immaculate. All our cuts are skilfully prepared by hand in time-honoured, traditional fashion. We never compromise on our standards, which is central to maintaining the quality you have come to expect. When choosing a cut of 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 local produce and farmers to promote a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.

Here’s cooking instruction for Leg of Lamb Butterfly:

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare a roasting pan.
2. Place the butterfly leg of lamb on a cutting board and pat it dry with paper towels. Trim any excess fat if desired.
3. In a small bowl, combine your choice of herbs and spices. Popular options include rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub this mixture all over the lamb, ensuring it is evenly coated.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil. Sear the lamb on all sides until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side.
5. Transfer the lamb to the prepared roasting pan and place it in the preheated oven.
6. Roast the lamb for about 20-25 minutes per pound (450-550g) for medium-rare doneness. Adjust the cooking time according to your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. For medium-rare, it should read around 145°F (63°C).
7. Once cooked to your liking, remove the lamb from the oven and cover it loosely with foil. Allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes. This helps the juices redistribute and ensures a tender and juicy result.
8. After resting, slice the leg of lamb against the grain and serve with your favorite side dishes or sauces.

Enjoy your delicious leg of lamb butterfly!
