Farming Standards

The Lamb Man works very hard at ensuring that the lamb raised on East Wingates Farm is of the highest quality and is exceptionally well looked after. We are members of Eblex and FABBL and carry their logos on our site.

  • Eblex - The English Beef and Lamb Executive.
  • EFIS-FABBL - The Farm Assurance Scheme

We have now achieved the Quality Standard for British Lamb, follow the link to find out more

Homeopathic Animal Remedies

We believe in traditional farming methods, and East Wingates Farm has been part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme for over 12 years. East Wingates Farm is made up of non intensively farmed upland pasture. We use no fertilisers or pesticides and give only the minimal amount of medicine to the sheep. Wherever possible we use homeopathic remedies supplied by Blue Merle Animal Health.

"The quality of the lamb was, as always, exceptional, and was very much commented on at our last dinner party."
Dr Julia Betts, Northumberland
