One of the sad realities of our commercial farming system is that adult males are not prized for their flavour and unique taste like in many other cultures around the world. Ram or adult male sheep has a different taste and texture than normal mutton or lamb. It has a deeper flavour closer to beef then baby lamb. In our opinion the unique taste works perfectly as a slow roast or in in long slow curries or tagine. This ram was 7 years old and had a great life living on pasture on Fidelitys rich and fertile land. Limited stock.
