As a child, my Grandad called me a Blackface Baa Lamb. It stuck for quite a while, mainly because I had an aptitude for getting dirty.So when the Hairy Bikers visited The Blackface Meat Company back in 2009, I watched with amusement and recalled family outings in the Yorkshire Dales when my Grandad would point out my 'brothers and sisters'.
Imagine our delight when we were asked if we would like to try some Scottish Blackface Mutton - Yes please!
Given the choice of Diced Mutton or a Whole Rack, we chose the Rack.
Blackface proudly announce their products as "Fresh from the Wilds of Scotland to your Door" but our 'taster' came frozen, along with the advice that after defrosting the meat has a shelf life of 10 days.
