Soay Meat Box
For the first time, we are offering some of our own meat for sale to the general public.
We started the farm so that we could grow and eat the best quality, ethically raised food we could possibly get. We’ve spent the last 5 years learning the process of raising meat to organic standards*, with the ultimate care and attention paid to the welfare of the animals we eat.
We have a special place in our hearts for our herd of Soay sheep. Wild, skittish and more deer like than their fluffy commercial counterparts, Soays form the backbone of our regenerative farming practices here at Gartur. None of the animals have ever been treated with antibiotics and live completely on pasture except for a small amount of organic hard feed we give them daily to help them be a little less skittish.
Soay tastes very different to other lamb and mutton you have eaten before. It is a much leaner meat, closer in taste to venison than it is to supermarket lamb. I am not at all a fan of lamb, but I love soay. Our meat is classed as hogget - older than lamb, but younger than mutton.
Our boxes are small, like the sheep they came from. We are currently offering Soay intro packs - a pack of hogget chops (aprox 7 per pack) and a 1kg or 2kg roast. Though, it comes with a warning, it may spoil you for all other lamb and mutton!!!
Total meat packs weigh in at 2kg for a small and 3kg for a large. Boxes are posted Tuesday and Wednesday. We use Puffin Packaging, with completely recycle-able wool lined boxes and ice packs. Parcels are shipped via DPD courier next day delivery.
*please note that while we meet all organic requirements, we are NOT certified organic.
