Exmoor Lamb wins Gold

West Ilkerton Farm were awarded Gold for their half leg of lamb at the Taste of the West Awards

The farm near Lynmouth in Exmoor has been handed down for generations. Their aim is to blend modern knowledge with sustainable farming methods using local breeds that are suited to the area. ‘Red Ruby’ Devon cattle and Exmoor Horn sheep have been bred on the farm in an unbroken line for well over a century, so they are keen to conserve this living link with the past and hand it on to future generations.

The Taste of the West Gold Award shows that Exmoor lamb really is the best.
