CALVEYS ACHILL MOUNTAIN LAMB
Achill Mountain Lamb is reared, slaughtered and butchered by the Calvey family on Achill Island on the west of Ireland. These lambs have the freedom to graze all over the island from the seashore to the hills and mountains. They drink their mother’s milk and munch on wild herbs, heathers, grasses, mosses, lichens and seaweed.
This pure diet and pristine environment makes for a special type of artisan meat just bursting with flavour. It’s tender, slightly salty and utterly addictive. Top chefs and home cooks agree.
Trade/Catering size carcasses and joints of Achill Lamb also available butchered and hand crafted to your requirements.

Achill® Mountain Lamb from Calveys is naturally special and distinctive. Calveys are a large family including female farmers who for seven generations have been herding Mayo Blackface Mountain Sheep on Achill Island in Co. Mayo producing Mayo Blackface Mountain Lambs. Since 1962 Calveys have also been slaughtering and butchering their blackface lambs in their own Abattoir & Butchery on Achill Island. In 1962 Martin Calvey’s Achill Lamb first came to market. What Calveys do today uniquely remains unchanged.
When the live blackface mountain lamb is ready it is expertly selected. It is also then slaughtered, butchered and hand crafted on Achill Island in the Calvey Family’s own Abattoir and Butchers in Keel, Achill Island, Co. Mayo using the same craft work, artisan traditions & specialised skills preserved over 50 years and steadily passed on down through generations.
