What differentiates Ring of Kerry Quality Lamb Products?
Lambs are mostly grass-fed. The little supplementary feed that is used is regulated by the group reducing the effects that some animal feed can have on palatability.
Male lambs are castrated, eliminating the risk of ram taint, which can negatively affect taste.
Post-slaughter, all lambs are matured for a minimum of 7 days. This is longer than the industry norm and leads to more tender meat.
All lambs are fasted and rested prior to slaughter – reducing stress and enhancing the meat colour.
All lambs are cut to customer specification and vac packed. The vac pack used is 2/3 times thicker than industry norm, preventing punctures and reducing the risk of freezer burn when product is frozen.
We offer full or half lamb options.
All lambs are traceable from farm to fork and each vac pack is labelled accordingly.
All farmers supplying to group belong to the Bord Bia Lamb Quality Assurance Scheme.
Deliveries are made direct to the customer’s door in our own refrigerated van or in a special chill box. Nationwide deliveries are made via courier.
