New season lamb, yum!
Another favourite time of year for us is when our our new season lamb starts. We sold our first 2 lambs at Wallingford farmers market last week although the temperature was more like a November market! Extraordinary weather. New season lamb is a lot paler in colour to our lambs which were born last March. Our favourite new season cuts are chops and cutlets which will literally melt in your mouth and take minutes to cook, yum! Even Belle is licking her lips in this picture!
As I write now we have glorious sunshine which is so lovely to see, we have missed it. It is only now that it is easier to see the benefits of the last few weeks of rain as everything looks so green and the grass looks fantastic. The lambs will just be starting to eat the grass and take less milk off their Mum's so they will be really benefiting.
Before we know it we will be haymaking and thinking about winter again!
We are at Henley farmers market this Thursday and Wantage on Saturday, come and see us!
