I am a Shetland Sheep breeder on Shetland and since 2005 I have been selling whole Native Shetland Lamb PDO direct. I have been drawing my state pension for several years and I feel now is the time to thank my many customers and close my direct retail sales.

Briggs Shetland Lamb is now closed. To everyone who has purchased over the last 17 years, thank you for your custom.

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

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 has been mainly available between September and November.

As of 31st January 2021 The UK adopted, in law, its own Protected Designation Origin (PDO) brand protection scheme. Put simply, the regulations of the EU PDO scheme were photocopied and edited to change every reference to the EU with a reference to the UK. These regulations apply in the UK only. It remains unclear if UK products are still protected in the EU and vice versa. The transition period to change from using the EU red and yellow logo to the UK black and gold logo is two years.
