Slow cooked minted lamb

Higginson’s Herdwick lamb will be available in the farm shop in April: available diced, minced, and as chops and steak, perfect for homemade spring dishes, and ideal when partnered with mint sauce.

A great choice is slow cooked minted lamb, also served in the café. You can find everything you need in the farm shop – look out for locally-grown crop to the shop ingredients.
