Please excuse the poor layout.
This site is under active construction.
I also have much to learn.
I thought it more important to get the information out as soon as possible.

¸ As some of you will realise, buying this way is not the same as going to a shop and seeing what you want to buy. Precise weights will vary.
What will be guaranteed for a particular order is price by weight.

¸ Here is an indication of some likely prices at present - all joints and cuts will be individually bagged.
If you buy half a lamb, weighing about 7.5kg. at £4/kg. it will cost you £30
½lamb = 2 x ½ legs (or 1 leg, if you prefer), loinchops, chops, shoulder, breast.
The most expensive joint bought individually would be £6-£8/kg.
There is a price advantage of roughly 30% in buying all the joints for ½lamb in one order

At the moment my web design skills are somewhat limited. You may prefer me to post you a sheet that you can photocopy and spread around a bit. If you wish to have such a sheet, or have more up-to-date information via email, please email me at johnolan@argonet.co.uk. This will give much the same information that follows :-
