Welsh Lamb Boxes

100% Grass Fed

Our flock here at Argae Cottage consists of two native breeds:


Black Welsh Mountain sheep are one of Britain's smaller native breeds. They are small and hardy, able to cope on the sparse grazing of the Welsh mountains.  However, they seem just as happy on the good grass on our lowland smallholding! 

Our Lleyn ewes are slightly larger, and originate from the Lleyn peninsula in North Wales.  Lleyns are renowned for their fantastic mothering ability, and their ability to rear strong, healthy lambs at grass.

Our flock lambs in March/April, with the ewes in the fields close to the house and access to a cosy, sheltered barn.  Assistance is rarely needed, but we are always on hand just in case!

The ewes and lambs are soon out in the main fields, enjoying the flush of Spring grass.



After weaning at 4 months old, our lambs grow slowly at grass throughout the summer months, with the majority of them reaching maturity in the Autumn.  The smaller lambs continue to graze through the winter months, and are finished in the following Spring.


Our growing lambs are not fed any concentrate/grain based food - just pure Welsh grass throughout their lives.

We use a local butcher, who prepares and packages the meat for us.

Our Welsh Lamb is juicy, tender and truly delicious.  It is also thought that grass-fed meat has certain health benefits, such as higher levels of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, and higher antioxident levels.

Lamb Boxes

Boxes full of our delicious, grass reared lamb are available from August onwards each year, with a smaller number available again in April/May (these are lambs born the previous year and grown slowly over winter)

All freshly prepared by our butcher, and packed ready for the freezer.
