about layer marney lamb
We are a family run business based at Fiveways Fruit Farm, Stanway, Colchester and have been producing Prime Quality Lamb for the past 25 years. Since 2001 all our lamb has been retailed direct to the public through Farmers Markets. Our Lamb is butchered and packed by us in our butchery and sold at many farmers markets and through our shop.
Good Quality Lamb We have 600 breeding ewes all of which are native breeds mainly Welsh Crosses these are all put to the Suffolk Ram to produce prime fat lambs. Our ewes and lambs are grazed extensively on local parkland and water meadows being stocked at a very low rate of 3 ewes to the acre.
The ewes return to the Farm in January for housing before they lamb in March once lambed they return to their summer grazing where the lambs will remain on a diet of grass until they are ready for butchering. We use our nearest Abattoir at Chelmsford so cutting down on travelling and stress for the lambs. Our lamb is 100% grass reared and free range, properly and honestly produced with the animals welfare the Top Priority.
renaissance mutton is available from sept - may.
