|What others think|
While we know the lamb we sell is of top quality, and being a shepherd for the day is great fun, we appreciate that you might not want to take our word for it... so here is just some of the feedback we have had from our customers. If you have bought some lamb from us or have been a shepherd for the day then we would love to hear what you think too.
You kindly supplied the leg of lamb we had for Christmas lunch. It was voted the best lamb any of us had ever had, so thank you very much. Elaine Walby, London
We just wanted to mail you to say what a fantastic day we had with you. The whole day was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Watching Holly and Toby grow in confidence with the animals throughout the day was so encouraging to watch. Both have spoken of little else since the experience. It also seems to have reinforced the thought of working with animals when they are older. We were all amazed by the dedication you have in raising the flock. The lamb we took home at the end of the day was also delicious. It’s great for the kids to see the process of where their food comes from. All in all a truly memorable day. Thank you. Vinny, Lou, Holly & Toby
I went to the South Oxford Community Center Farmers Market this morning and was convinced to buy a shoulder of lamb. As Roly suggested, I put it in the oven at 180ºC for 45 minutes and then at 150ºC for as many hours as possible (in this case, it was a bit more than 4 hours). We just ate the most delicious piece of lamb tonight! You should have seen my 10 month old daughter savoring your lamb...it was tender, full of meat, and very flavorful. It only needed salt, pepper, rosemary, olive oil, and garlic. Looking forward to buying some of your delicious lamb next week! Ivelisse Cabrera, Oxford
Thank you so much for an AMAZING day! My dad and I loved every minute and it has wholeheartedly reaffirmed out belief that farming/self-sufficiency is something we would love and enjoy doing. Thanks for letting us get so involved and I will definitely never forget delivering that little lamb or herding the sheep with Belle! It certainly was a brilliant birthday present and thank you for making it possible. Lauren, Rugby
I bought a piece of frozen mutton from you at the last Wallingford farmers market and it was excellent. It was the first time I had roasted a mutton joint and I had heard that the flavour might be strong and even gamey but it was just delicious and I'm not sure why everyone isn't eating it. I will certainly be buying more. It tasted all the better knowing the animal was more mature when slaughtered rather than being a youngster. Jennie, Wallingford
Thank you so much for a splendid day and what fun it was! Joe has hardly stopped talking about the experience since, he loved it. Roly was great and made the whole day so interesting and entertaining (I grinned all day long, with pleasure) also Mel and Akash your vet students were so friendly and very knowledgeable, thanks guys. Sorry to have missed the birth of the triplets but helping to bring 2 lambs into the world was a wonderful experience we won’t forget in a hurry. Thanks again!! Lin and Joe
I don't think I have tasted rack of lamb like yours since a trip to Paris 7 years ago. Beautiful product! Wished I lived nearer to buy. Mark Fairhurst, Gloucestershire
I just wanted to let you know that the lamb I bought from you recently really is the best lamb we have ever tasted! It is so tender and 'melts in the mouth'. We have eaten the 2 legs already and was much appreciated by friends and family. So, well done and we look forward to eating more in the future! Caroline, Stanton St John
Thank you so much for all of your help with the mutton, quality of the mutton meat was fantastic. Leslie, London
The Easter feast was a resounding success. The lamb was absolutely delicious (although we have much left so I cooked some last night too, and am doing a curry tonight and then will make meatballs if there’s still some left over after that)! Stella, Oxford
Camilla and Roly have a skill at talking in an entertaining way to the public while having a hand up a sheep! Graham, Wallingford.
We would like to thank you for your wonderful hospitality on Thursday we had an amazing day. We were so impressed with your passion and commitment and how you managed to keep going on so little sleep. We were exhausted by the end of the day and we had had a full nights sleep. The quality of the animal husbandry was first class, your knowledge and care of the sheep and lambs was of the highest standard. The variety of the tasks we were able to get involved in was fantastic we especially enjoyed the actual lambing but working with Belle was also a great experience. We hope the quads continue to do well and the little triplets are making good progress. We have told our stories to anyone who would listen. Kinnon and Phil, Wirral
Just HAD to let you know what an amazing day we spent with you last Saturday!! Our 380 mile 'round trip' was well worth it for all the fun we had with our grandchildren at the lambing weekend & we can't wait till next year!! Mandy Levy
