Several months ago we sent Keyhaven lamb, hogget and mutton off to be judged for the Great Taste Awards 2017. Here are the results and some of the judges’ comments:

Shoulder of Keyhaven Mutton - 3 stars
"Judges were jostling to photograph and eat this. Melt in the mouth, tender, moist without being fatty with crisp skin. A stonking piece of lamb"
Rack of Keyhaven Lamb - 2 stars
"Extremely tender with sweetness in the meat and the fat. Rounded flavour with the herbs from pasture coming through at the end. Cuts beautifully. Very moreish".
Leg of Keyhaven Hogget - 2 Stars
"Lovely smelling, extremely tender lamb. It was so easy to cut. Its beautifully strong, full flavour had a hint of gaminess and its savoury tasting, crispy fat was a delight. We would absolutely go back for more".
Keyhaven Barnsley Chops - 1 star
"The aroma coming off this gleaming meat with its lovely strip of fat was heavenly. It cut beautifully to reveal tender and succulent meat that had a rich, long lasting lamb flavour. The fat was also sweet and melted in the mouth. A truly lovely piece of meat".
To put this in context there were 12,366 products with only 165 foods achieving the highest and most coveted rating, three stars, 1011 foods grabbing 2 stars and 3171 were awarded a 1 star. That means only 35% of entries were accredited.
The competition was tough and Lisa, Simeon and Keith (In picture) are delighted to receive this national recognition and it is great testimony of the hard work put in by the whole Lisa's Larder team.
They are planning a celebration when they open again on the 22nd & 23rd September and they will have news of their new online shop very soon.
It is official, Keyhaven Lamb tastes great!
