Jimmy Bell - The Lamb Man

Jimmy Bell - The Lamb Man

Jimmy Bell is known locally as 'The Lamb Man' because he rears, butchers and sells traditional Northumbrian Hill Lamb from his family farm at East Wingates near Longhorsley in Northumberland. 

Jimmy attends market in season only (October till March) following the seasonal rearing of his lamb. 

You can purchase his hill lamb online and have it delivered by mail, visit his butchery at East Wingates Farm where lamb can be cut to order, or find him at Morpeth Farmers' Markets. Wherever you buy lamb from The Lamb Man you receive top quality fresh lamb direct from his/ farm.

Jimmy's fresh lamb tastes superb because he:

  • Uses only the finest quality Texel-cross lambs.
  • Uses lambs from a non-intensively farmed upland pasture in Northumberland.
  • Avoids using chemicals or pesticides on our farm.
  • Gives the minimal amount of medicines to our sheep and use homeopathic remedies where possible.
  • Hangs his lamb for ten days as was the custom for traditional butchers.
