How we prepare your Lamb

When you buy a whole lamb online or from our shop, it is expertly crafted and butchered into its component parts, including joints, cuts and chops.  We place the lamb meat in freezer bags ready for your deep freeze and clearly labelled showing you what’s in each transparent bag.

When you order/buy an Achill®Mountain Lamb carcass, Grainne will telephone you to discuss your individual requirements and preferences with you. She will explain every cut and joint and she will craft the lamb tailor made to your family requirements. You will receive your butchered and crafted Achill®Mountain Lamb carcass in a specially selected insulated box to ensure freshness is not compromised on delivery. From our hill top to your table top, Achill®Mountain Lamb carcass, Calvey’s gift of nature.
