Our Lamb Supplier | The Rare Breed Meat Company
The Rare Breed Meat Co.
Howard & George Blackwell
At The Rare Breed Meat Company, we rear or source all of the produce ourselves and offer complete traceability for our customers to ensure that the highest levels of animal welfare are adhered to.
We passionately believe in the quality of the meat produced from these animals that have been reared in totally free range environments and fed only on natural foods that are free of any form of growth promoters.
The Blackwells source the majority of the lambs from Essex and Suffolk on the coast areas such as Woodbridge, Walton-on the Naze, Mersea Island and Foulness Island, we also draw some from Kent.
WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL
The Salt Marsh lambs that we supply enter the market from June and can go through to about March; The succulent sweet flavour of this lamb is a direct result of the natural marsh land grazing which they roam freely over in the summer months. The natural grasses and samphire are free from any form of fertilisers and provide a totally natural environment for the sheep.
