Seasonal Cumbrian Suckling Swaledale Lamb is available from Udale Speciality Foods until the end of August.
The young, light hill lambs, which are traceable from farm to fork, produce a tender, succulent, milky and delicate meat from their near-organic diet, grazing on milk, grass and heather on the Cumbrian fells.
The meat is also believed to yield higher levels of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids than lowland lambs. The lambs are sold as whole carcasses with a wholesale price of about £79.
Fans of the meat include Restaurant Sat Bains, Boxwood Caf‚, Langan's Brasserie, the Goring hotel and the Vineyard at Stockcross.
