marinating a whole roast lambWe are based on a traditional Dales Hill farm and therefore have access to some wonderful flavoursome lambs. We hang these for at least a week before cooking.

As with the pigs the difference between the roast lamb and spit roast lamb is the cooking method; the latter being done on a spit and the former in a large roasting tray. The tray roasting allows extra joints to be cooked at the same time. Cooking times are approximately 3 - 4 hours.


An approximate guide for catering would be :-

Formal dinner:- 30-40 servings per lamb

Bread buns / pitta bread:- 60-80 servings per lamb


As with the hog roast we can either cook at your event, deliver a ready cooked lamb or provide a DIY option.
