Jimmy The Lamb Man

Jimmy The Lamb Man

The view from East Wingates Farm

My name is Jimmy Bell and I'm known locally as 'The Lamb Man' because I rear, butch and sell traditional Northumbrian Hill Lamb from my family farm at East Wingates near Longhorsley in Northumberland. You can purchase our hill lamb online and have it delivered by mail, visit our butchery at East Wingates Farm where we can cut lamb to order, or find us at the Northumbrian Farmers' Markets. Wherever you buy lamb from The Lamb Man you receive top quality fresh lamb direct from our farm.

Our fresh lamb tastes superb because we:

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

We realise that not everyone has a large chest freezer so The Lamb Man visits the 500 year old Traditional Weekly Wednesday Market in Morpeth, and also goes to the following monthly Farmers' Markets in Northumberland and Tyne and Wear:

  • Morpeth market on the first Saturday in the month;
  • Tynemouth market on the third Saturday in the month;
  • Ponteland market on the fourth Saturday in the month;
  • Alnwick market on the last Friday in the month.
