I am a Shetland Sheep breeder on Shetland and I sell whole Native Shetland Lamb PDO. This lamb with subtly different characteristics is available freshly butchered, chilled and packed suitable for restaurants and for home freezing. 18-month old hogget and mutton are also available in the same form.

We have nearly sold out the 2015 Native Shetland Lamb PDO. The last order date is 27th November for delivery early December.

If you wish to place an order or wish me to keep you informed of availability and delivery dates, please fill in your details on the Contact/Enquiry page or contact me at my email address above.

100% NATIVE SHETLAND LAMB All the lambs come from pure bred Shetland flocks raised on the isles. They are processed and packed for me by the local cooperative, Shetland Livestock Marketing Group

DELIVERY DIRECT TO YOUR DOOR is available throughout Britain via Royal Mail’s Next Day Special Delivery Service. I can also, by prior arrangement, deliver the boxes of meat personally in Shetland (Mainland) and to addresses in Eastern Scotland (near to the Aberdeen to Edinburgh Road connection). Again by prior arrangement I am able to deliver whole carcases by refrigerated transport.

SEASONAL I believe that the best flavour of Shetland lamb comes from animals that graze the natural Shetland plants and grasses. Consequently, Briggs’ Shetland Lamb is mainly available between September and December.
