Welsh Salt Marsh Lamb From One of Rick Stein's Food Hero's
One of the epicurean delights available in summer is the unique taste of authentic SALT MARSH LAMB.
This is lamb, bred, born, reared and fattened on land that is regularly covered by tidal waters, only to be found on some estuaries with grazing containing grass, samphire, rushes and seaweed.
The availability of this type of grazing is rare and gives the lamb meat a unique and fascinating taste, which is not obtainable from land, adjoining, but not regularly flooded by the sea. This taste is only achieved from grazing land that is flooded by daily tides.
Elwy Valley Welsh Lamb are able to supply special SALT MARSH LAMB which is guaranteed to fulfil1 all the essential criteria mentioned from an estuary in an area of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by mountainous hills and with unpolluted water, and with salt marsh grazing on several thousand acres.

Mutton is once again being regarded as a premium meat and it's all thanks to the Mutton Renaissance Campaign of which we are also members. Instigated by the Prince of Wales in 2004, the campaign - coordinated by the Academy of Culinary Arts (of which Prince Charles is patron) and the National Sheep Association - has steadily been gaining pace.
We are happy to supply mutton both in carcass form or in cuts. Elwy Valley Welsh Lamb mutton products have recently featured on the Channel 4 series Jamie at Home with leading chef Jamie Oliver
