Lamb Leg, Dorset Horn Originating in S.W. England on the English Channel Coast, the Dorset Horn was bred for meaty legs, which is why it was the breed of choice for English Christmas centerpieces. Now raised on the pastures of Vermont, the Horned Dorset variety makes up less than 5% of yearly Dorset registrations.
Belly and Loin Chops, Tunis Reputed to be 3,000 years old, the Tunis was originally known as the fat tail sheep — the tails are now docked as the fat tail is no longer considered a delicacy. Instead, that tail fat now migrates into the ribs and saddle (loin chops) creating unusually delicious marbling, sweetness, and flavor in these cuts.
Humanely raised on pasture
Antibiotic and hormone free
Raised by independent family farmers
Heritage breeds have more marbling resulting in more tender and juicy meat
