Enjoy Spring Lamb
Eating good quality food, in the season in which it is naturally available, is a very special culinary experience, and it’s important to make the most of it. Of course, when you order online with Ó Crualaoi, it’s possible to fill your freezer and enjoy our tender spring lamb at any time, but there’s nothing quite like the taste of spring lamb in the springtime!
Spring lamb is so called because it is in peak supply during the spring. Traditional breeding cycles mean that lambs are born in the winter and ready for sale in the spring. Spring lambs are generally milk fed and are considered to be particularly sweet as they graze on the fresh spring shoots of grass.
