We source our lamb from Provenance
, a farm situated in New Zealand’s high country that has completely transformed traditional farming.
At Provenance, comprehensive farming protocols ensure the biological life of the soil is constantly replenished so the land can be preserved for future generations. Sustainable land use is helped by natural inputs, minimal use of fertilisers and careful grazing.
Lambs are raised and cared for in a natural environment, freely ranging across hills and paddocks as they graze. They are well looked after and treated humanely and with respect. The result is exceptionally healthy animals.
Grass-fed meats are a healthier choice than grain-fed, and lamb is no exception. Lamb raised on natural pastures contain more omega-3s, which are beneficial for good heart health. In addition, lamb’s low carbohydrate content also makes it an excellent choice for keto diets.
Provenance lamb is 100% grass-fed and is free of antibiotics, GMOs and hormones. It has a distinctly delicate flavour that is less “gamey” than other lamb. A subtle sweetness complimented by ‘nutty’ undertones speaks of the unique terroir in which the lamb is raised. A silky smooth texture and fine marbling deliver wonderfully succulent, tender meat, with a clean finish on the palate.
Our lamb shanks come with the bone in, which makes them perfect for hearty casseroles. The slow-cooking process creates a beautifully rich and sumptuous sauce that's full of flavour. It’s a go-to dish for those chilly winter nights.
Each vacuum pack contains four hind shanks, and weighs a total of between 1.0kg and 1.2kg.
