Meat connossieurs and food lovers – from top chefs to foodies – across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, in fact the whole of the UK; will now be able to enjoy a truly unique offering thanks to an exclusive agreement between the Cotswold Chicken Company and Gower Salt Marsh Lamb (PDO) – a food name with Protected Designation of Origin status, like Champagne, Cornish pasties and Melton Mowbray pies!
Based in Ashton Keynes, Gloucestershire, the Cotswold Chicken Company is now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Gower Salt Marsh Lamb, the multi-award-winning fine meat which comes exclusively from the 4,000 acre salt marsh that covers the northern shores of the Gower Peninsular, Britain’s very first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Speaking of the exciting partnership, Nick Passmore, Owner of the Cotswold Chicken Company says:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to now be supplying Gower Salt Marsh Lamb – the Rolls Royce of lamb, you could say! We take great pride in working with British farmers, artisans and breed specialists, and are very selective in sourcing the highest quality products from some of the UK’s best independent farms. Fine meat connoisseurs – from the greatest Michelin chefs to consumers who consider themselves to be the ultimate foodies – will want to get their hands on this divine Welsh lamb which comes only from a specific area of Wales, a large tidal salt marsh within the Burry Estuary. The unique environment on which the sheep graze is rich in samphire, sorrel, sea lavender and thrift; a pasture which gives Gower Salt Marsh Lamb its distinctive and special flavour.”
The marsh is abundant with salt tolerant herbs, and it is from the lambs grazing on this wonderful herb forage which gives Gower Salt Marsh Lamb its mild, sweet and delicate flavour with grassy, herby and slightly salty fresh notes. Lambs roam freely across the marsh, and must spend at least half their life grazing the salt marsh in order to be sold as Gower Salt Marsh Lamb. Thanks to its unique story, delicious taste and provenance, it’s no wonder Gower Salt Marsh Lamb makes for some of the finest quality produce in the UK.
The Cotswold Chicken Company is now welcoming orders for the new season of Gower Salt Marsh Lamb, available until the end of December. Delivery is available both locally, using its own fleet of refrigerated vehicles; and nationally throughout the UK, using a reputable courier service.
