 Shh'annu is now being served by over a dozen of the UK's Michelin Star restaurants in the UK.

Shh'annu is more than just a breed, it is a technique.  Certainly, the breeding is important - it is a 3 way cross between Suffolks, Texels and Cambridges, called a "Kirkwood Composite".  More important, perhaps, is the age of slaughter - 14 months minimum for shh'annu.  Also, all shh'annu are hung for at least 2 weeks as carcasses. 

Shh'annu comes from Kirkwood farm, near Lockerbie, and the animals are born and reared out-of-doors, eating grasses (clover-rich pastures) all their lives - no artificial feedstuffs.  Minimal use of fertilisers, chemicals, drugs, even vaccines and antibiotics all leads to a superior taste. Medicines are certainly used if needed for an individual animal, but there is no routine overuse. Slaughter is done locally and with minimal stress. Butchery is back on the farm.  Every attention to detail is pursued to improve the taste.

The lamb topside is found in the short-cut leg area above the silverside and near the rump and this boneless rolled, and tied roast is tender, flavourful and simple to cook.

Perfect for summer dishes with asparagus and new potatoes or equally at home in the Autumn or winter with wild mushroom fricassee, glazed carrots, pomme Boulangere and a bold jus made from our Salsus Veal or Beef Demi Glace.

For best results, marinate the lamb joint overnight in olive oil with fresh garlic and sprigs of rosemary. 

Season well and brown the outside in a nonstick pan over medium heat, then roast in the oven at 180°c for approximately 20 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 55°c for medium rare. Allow to rest for at least 20 minutes, then return to the oven for 3/4 minutes to heat through before serving. A 500g± topside serves 2 very generously or  3 people with a more refined garnish.

For the shipping fresh and frozen goods we use high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network.

To keep frozen goods at the correct temperature we use a safe alternative to dry ice.  These gel packs freeze to a temperature of -45° and stay frozen for an extended period of time. Completely food safe and fully recyclable/reusable.

All ingredients that we sell are hand selected choosing from the best product available.

We only use premium express courier services and aim to have produce out of our hands and into yours in the shortest possible time.

All perishable goods orders are safely packed in thick, wool lined, insulated boxes with Eco friendly Ice packs, guaranteeing freshness for a minimum of 2 full days in transit. Much longer in colder seasons.


The vast majority of frozen food shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this.  In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in straight in your freezer.  Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.


All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper.  This is suitable for storing in your fridge.  If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac.  Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
