Josh points out to the sheep that the blue marking on their heads means that they're being fattened up for Xmas dinner..

Do they still sell mutton in New Zealand. We ate pounds of it as kids but can't get it in teh UK.

You can get really good mutton in the UK, the market's been developing for awhile now, but you need to go to a proper butcher or order it on the net.

Really? Our local Carribean restaurant sells it ... but suspect it's goat.

I think you can still get mutton over there... I even saw Gordon Ramsay cook with it once so we must be able to get it in the UK somewhere... surely!

Hmmm... mutton pies!

I think that it might be a "ask your butcher" buy.

Try ringing a couple of the farmers on this page; www.herdwick-sheep.com/herdwick_meat/index.htm
Most of them do farmer's markets, some supply shops, some do mail order. Lamb is what they tend to push at the moment, but if you ask, I'm sure they can point you at some of the good stuff...

... as long as they don't pass it off as dog. Josh wouldn't be impressed...

Um - these are actually hoggets, which means that they're a year old already. Mutton is widely available here in NZ but hogget tastes better!
