About the breed

The Manx Loaghtan (pronounced Manx Lockton)┬áis one of the oldest and most striking breeds of sheep in the UK, native to the Isle of Man. They are very striking with their big horns (two or four) and golden-brown wool. Termed ‘a primitive rare breed’ it is classed at as ‘at risk’ by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

The Manx Loaghtan is fine boned and late maturing, producing dark, fine grained meat with a distinctive taste and intense flavour, similar to that of game.

As well as being tastier than commercial lamb, it is also healthier, having less fat and cholesterol. The Scottish Agricultural Colleges found the Manx Loaghtan to be 23% lower in fat and almost 10% lower in cholesterol than commercial breeds.

The quality of our meat reflects the diets and livelihoods our flocks enjoy.

Naturally grown to over 12 months of age, they are 100% grass fed on flora rich Leicestershire pastures, free from herbicides and fertilizers.

Matured on the bone for up to 3 weeks prior to butchery.
