Beulah ewe and this years lamb

Beulah ewe and this years lamb

 
Organic lamb and mutton from Butser Hill were on sale from today in the visitor centre shop. Pre-packed frozen joints are available, and whole and half lamb, fresh or frozen on request.
 
The Park has a sheep flock of 220 Beulah ewes which lamb in april each year. The flock is there to maintain the National Nature Reserve in favourable condition and is currently being helped in this task by two small herds of Aberdeen Angus steers. The Beulah originates from the uplands of central Wales and has among its qualities, a strong maternal ability, hardiness, easy care characteristics and a good crossing potential. It is considered an ideal breed to spend the whole year out on the Downs with out the need for shelter or much supplementary feed. 

 
Rother Valley Organics is a local farming partnership set up by the Sprackling brothers who look after the livestock on the hill and process the meat through the Park’s shop, farmers markets and restaurants.
 
In addition to this years lamb, and older animals sold as mutton, the shop also has venison around the year, and subject to season, rabbit, pigeon and pheasant.
