CALVEY’S ACHILL MOUNTAIN LAMB ®
Mayo Blackface Mountain lambs are reared, slaughtered and butchered by the Calvey family on Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland. Calvey’s lamb products are then sold under Calvey’s Trade Marks ACHILL LAMB TM and ACHILL MOUNTAIN LAMB TM . 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.
Catering size Achill Mountain Lamb TM carcasses and joints of lamb meat also available butchered and hand crafted to your requirements.
