ABOUT OUR LAMB
Dion & Ali create a premium lamb throughout the 12 months of the year. We achieve this through being breed and gender specific and keeping the lamb as stress-free as possible.
Our lambs are Romney/texel in conjunction with a Charollais Ram. The Charollais ram breed is fairly new to NZ. With fine shoulders and narrow heads for easy lambing, they are fast to grow and are a high meat yielding sheep. For you the consumer it means you are getting more meat and less bone. They also lay their fat down differently creating intramuscular fat. Intramuscular fat makes the lamb more tender and juicy.
As farmers we don’t eat male produce – this is because the male hormones in the lamb can change the taste at different times of the year. All lamb boxes will contain guaranteed ewe lambs (female eating).
