Butterflied Lamb Leg
Butterflied Lamb Leg
New Season Winter 2023 Lamb, pasture-raised in the happy and fertile conditions of Mangaroa Farms.
The butterflied leg is prepared from a boneless leg, by opening the leg and cutting the muscle to create a butterfly shape. This is a perfect cut for the barbecue, as a butterflied leg cooks quicker than a full lamb leg.

Resilience & Regeneration
Our veges are grown locally on our farm with no harmful sprays/chemicals inside our greenhouse, or outside in one of our classic 25m long garden beds. Happy herds of sheep, cows, and chickens are grazed in the pastures nearby, working as part of a regenerative system that nourishes the underground soil microbes, and giving back to Papatūānuku.
