Mutton from North Yorkshire Farms

At Grid Iron Meat, we are passionate about free-range mutton, which is sourced from sheep over two years old and reared on pastures in North Yorkshire. These sheep are healthier compared to their grain-fed counterparts, resulting in meat with a firm and rich texture and lots of flavour. The sheep have worked harder and lived longer, resulting in a truly delicious meat, much like native breed beef.

Mutton is a meat that has been enjoyed for centuries in many parts of the world, and it has a rich history and tradition behind it. The word “mutton” actually comes from the Old French word “moton,” which means sheep. It is the meat of a mature sheep that is over two years old and has a much more intense flavour compared to lamb.

In the past, mutton was the most popular meat in the UK and other parts of the world, but over time, it lost its popularity to lamb, which is more tender and has a milder taste. However, mutton is making a comeback in recent years, as people rediscover its unique and delicious flavour.

Mutton has a darker colour and a firmer texture compared to lamb, and it also has more fat, which adds to its flavour and richness. This makes it perfect for slow cooking and braising, as the fat and connective tissue break down, resulting in tender and flavourful meat. Mutton can also be grilled, roasted, or pan-fried, and it pairs well with bold spices and flavours.

One of the main benefits of mutton is that it comes from free-range sheep that have been raised on pasture, which makes it a healthier and more sustainable choice compared to factory-farmed meat. Mutton is also a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, including iron, zinc, and vitamin B12.

In the UK, mutton is a popular choice for traditional dishes such as shepherd’s pie, Lancashire hotpot, and roast dinner. It is also used in international cuisine, such as Moroccan tagines, Indian curries, and Greek souvlaki.
