Worth Abbey Farm has a combination of traditional pasture and woodland that makes it ideal for livestock farming. Our Lleyn ewes are renowned for being quiet in nature and very hardy.
Our ewes, who are due to lamb in April, graze on white clover and grass which gives the lamb a unique flavour and texture. It is prepared and boxed locally, thereby minimising any undue travel and stress to the lambs.

Roast Lamb – a recipe to make your mouth water!
Whole head of garlic
1 tbsp. salt flakes
2 sprigs rosemary, leaves only, chopped
2 sprigs thyme, leaves only
1 leg of lamb, approximately 2kg
For the mashed potatoes:
25g parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
How to prepare and cook
Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas 3.
Separate and peel the garlic cloves, and crush them with the salt in a pestle and mortar. You need enough salt to give the mixture some grit. Mash the garlic into the salt. Add the rosemary and thyme, then mix with enough olive oil to make a thick paste.
Rub the garlic mixture over the whole surface of the lamb. Place the lamb into a deep sided roasting tin.
Add 250ml of water to the roasting tin. Baste the meat with the liquid then cover the lamb with foil. Place in the oven and roast for 3-3½ hours, until cooked to your liking.
When cooked, pour off any excess oil from the top of the liquid, leaving the cloudy, herby sediment in place. This is the gravy. Cover the pan with a lid and rest for 15 minutes.
Cut up the potatoes and cook in boiling, salted water. When soft enough to mash, drain in a colander then mash with the butter and grated parmesan. Season well with salt and pepper.
Carve the lamb into thick chunks and serve with the mashed potatoes. Pour over the pan juices.
