Swaledale Mutton Co.
Prime purebred mutton from the hills of the Yorkshire Dales

Welcome

To a taste from the past

Mutton was once the most common meat eaten in England, harvested from castrated male sheep and from older Ewes once their lambing days were done. The aftermath of the Second World war meant that ewes needed to keep on having lambs for much longer and so the mutton that was available was generally very tough and fatty. Once lamb became available again, everyone moved away from mutton and it became a forgotten food. Forgotten no longer, this meat has a fantastic flavour, especially when it comes from hardy hill sheep (such as the Swaledale) raised on rough upland grazing.  Just enough fat to prevent it being dry and with a superb texture, more and more people are turning back to mutton.
