Mutton from wethers, 4 years old, raised by Bill Bourne

Shetland Sheep Mutton from Northumberland

Rare-breed native Shetland, hardy little sheep who live on wild grasses and herbs. 

The Shetland is classed as a primitive or ‘unimproved’ sheep; however its versatility in providing tasty, sweet meat, highest quality fine fleece, ease of handling and attractive appearance have made it a popular choice for a whole range of people.

 

"Shetlands are a breed of sheep with an historic reputation of producing delicious mutton"

Country View 2004

 

The Shetland sheep produces very high quality meat with outstanding flavour and fine texture. As with other primitive breeds Shetlands tend to store much of their body fat around the organs rather than solely in the muscle. This results in far leaner meat than modern breeds.                                                                                            Thanks to the Shetland Sheep Society for this information www.shetland-sheep.org.uk
