Pyrenean milk-fed lamb under the Axuria label is available in the UK exclusively through Wild Harvest. The ewes give birth to the lambs in the mountains and lambs suckle only on their mother's milk, hence the appellation "élevé sous la mère". Due to the use of the ewe's milk for local cheese, the Axuria lambs are weaned early. They are brought down from the mountain and slaughtered within 45 days of their birth. The conditions in which the lambs are reared means they are free from antibiotics and hormones and of course feed only on their mother's milk. The lambs are fully traceable to source to ensure caterers receive the authentic product. Until the end of May, Wild Harvest will be stocking cuts including culottes, the carré (saddle and best end), pairs of shoulder and whole lambs.
