Herdwick Sheep

An ancient breed of Lake District sheep. They're exceptionally hardy, and their diet of lichens, ling heather and bilberries gives the dark meat a slightly gamey flavour. Lakeland, is more widely available - and a Swaledale and Herdwick cross. For the real thing see Agnus Farm Meats in our Mail Order Section
