Product Description

New Season Achill Mountain Lamb™ July 2018 TEL:(098) 43158

As Achill Lamb™ is mountain lamb it differs substantially in many ways to other lamb raised on low land pastures or to lambs that are meal fed

The flavours of Achill Mountain Lamb™ reflect how our lambs are raised and what they & the flocks eat out on the open plains and mountains of Achill Island (See video clips on this website)
Every bite reminds us that there are still some foods out there with real old fashioned taste & flavour!

For the first weeks proper finished lambs for butchering can be scarce so it is a good idea to Ring Grainne and add your name to the waiting list

In early Summer Achill Island is colour carpeted with an abundance of summer flowering wild plants & herbs, sweet heathers ,salty seaweeeds and seaside grasses. Imbued with these flavours Achill Mountain Lamb™ is lean, tender & succulent bursting with the summer time taste of Achill Island “Heather sweetened, Seaside seasoned”

Calvey’s est.1962 are personally involved in every step of the process & we send our Achill Lamb™ to you as nature’s gift, totally natural, totally tasty & totally Calvey’s
