What do you get in a side of Lamb?
Lamb is a great tasting versatile meat. From chops to roasts – you’ve got variety to suit any meal or weather!
We’ve broken down and weighed a side of lamb so you can see exactly what you’re geting, and roughly how much of each cut!
How much of each cut do I get?
During our photography day, we weighed out the lamb you see above! As this is a natural product, some variation will occur so please use the information below as a guide only.
In summary, we recieved about 11kg of lamb meat from our “side of lamb” and as you can see a good mix of chops, roasts and slow cooking meat!
|Whole leg of lamb|
|– Leg roast||1.734|
|– Leg roast 2||1.819|
|– Leg Roast 3||0.736|
|Forequarter Chops (round bone)||0.723|
Was it good value for money?
Absolutely! Even before factoring in taste into the equation!
Our side of lamb cost around $135, and we recieved about 10.8kg of meat. This means our price /kg of meat was less than $12.50/kg! (as of 26.4.2023)
This is a massive saving, as most meat these days is easily $15 to $20/kg or more in the supermarkets.
The best part is that a side of lamb takes up about the same amount of space as box of wine, so typically it should fit in a standard fridge/freezer!
