The lush moorland grasses of Exmoor are highly nutritious for the sheep bred and raised here and contribute to the quality of the finished lamb that is so popular with chefs and diners. There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh Exmoor grass-fed lamb - the nutritious grass diet gives the meat a succulent juiciness and characteristic flavour that is loved by many far and wide.
