UK's First Mutton Week

Aldeburgh town has gone mutton mad!

        Interesting mutton facts….

  • The older and more exercised the muscle of a grazing animal, the more intense a flavour it has
  • Mutton has been found to have 40% higher levels of Omege-3 fatty acids than lamb
  • Of all the grazing animals, mutton has the richest source of Vitamins B6 and B12, thiamine and iron

 And because this under-rated, healthy meat tastes so completely delicious, we’ve decided to give it its own festival…
