With plenty of sweet, succulent lamb, the Lamb Shoulder is a great alternative to the more popular leg. Left on the bone to give the meat flavour upon cooking, Lamb Shoulder is suited to serving alongside all the trimmings as a Sunday lunch. Exclusively sourced from free-range and heritage breed flocks, this joint showcases exactly why our lamb is so special, with all the qualities you’d expect of wholesome Irish lamb.

Local Irish Farms
Our meat is predominantly sourced from small farms, as well as our own. We only select breeds that are known for yielding the best meat in the world, with all natural diets and slow growth producing excellent marbling and fat content, allowing a superior depth of flavour. Sustainability is also a priority among our farmers – livestock on these farms contribute to a biodiverse landscape contrary to the destructive nature associated with much larger scale farms.
We are notoriously picky
Only the best of the best makes The Butcher's Block grade. Decades of experience go into inspecting every single carcass. The knowledge that goes into examining the muscle tone, fat covering and marbling of each animal is what sets us apart. If our expert inspectors don’t judge it to be absolutely perfect, they turn it away at the door.
