Dunwood Farm Staffordshire Meat Delivery and Ipstones Butcher

Our Lamb

We believe that English lamb is the finest in the world. Many of the most popular breeds originated here, and it is on the poorer, steeper ground unsuited to crop production that lamb production is most suited. 

We source from like-minded farmers in the Staffordshire Moorlands and Peak District.  The permanent, herb rich pasture from this area provides a perfect diet and habitat for producing succulent, sweet tasting lamb.

We source our lamb predominantly from the Turnock family in Blackshaw Moor (3 miles from our base).  They farm pedigree Shropshire sheep, a superb native breed that ticks all the boxes for us: local, traceable, native, high welfare, and superbly tasty.

The Shropshire breed of domestic sheep originated from the hills of Shropshire, and North Staffordshire, England, during the 1840s. The breeders in the area used the local horned black-faced sheep and crossed them with a few breeds of white-faced sheep (Southdown, Cotswold, and Leicester). This produced a medium-sized polled (hornless) sheep that produced good wool and meat.

We also have good availability of slow grown hogget, and native breed mutton.

Our meat can be purchased online on it’s own or as part of our free Meat delivery for certain postcodes in the Staffordshire Moorlands area.
