All of the lamb is 100% grass-fed and spends its life in the fields around the estate. By focusing on several different breeds the farmers are able match the seasonal growth of grass, having more growing lambs when grass is most plentiful. The main Suffolk flock produces lambs from May to July, and the rest of the year lambs come from a variety of breeds, including Shetland and Texel. We are lucky to have an excellent relationship with the small, family run, Downfield abattoir, only 15 miles from the estate, meaning our lambs never have to travel further than this.
All of the lamb from Balcaskie is Organic certified and Pasture for life assured.
