Grantham Lamb

Premium Lamb Products

Our Lamb is sourced only from our own farms. Its superior eating quality is the result of special breeding and care to ensure quality feeding and calm handling.

Our own breeding program since 2007 is now combined with the benefits of the Australian White breed to give the taste sensations that we guarantee will not be bettered.

About Grantham Lamb

Mary, Denis and Rob Tinkler produce their premium quality lamb on their farms around Jerilderie in southern NSW.

Here the mild climate and irrigated pastures allow year round production.

Their sheep are the result of years of careful breeding to produce a specialist meat sheep. They first used a similar mix of genetics to the new Australian White breed.  Since 2016 they have included Australian White genetics from Tattykeel to build the eating experience.

Carcase conformation of these sheep is outstanding, meaning each carcase yields more saleable quality meat.

Eating Quality

The fat composition and distribution gives the meat its exceptional eating quality. The work done by Assoc. Prof, Aduli Malau-Aduli at James Cook University gives the reason for this exceptional eating quality. His work shows it is the melting point of the fats that gives a meat that “simply melts in the mouth with unsurpassed juiciness and tenderness like no other lamb.”

His work on Tattykeel sheep showed the exceptionally low melting points in the range 28 to 35 degrees C.  Grantham sheep display these same eating and cooking qualities; we have no specific testing on our sheep.

Grantham is the name given to our home property by the WW1 bride from Grantham in Lincolnshire, England.

What Makes Grantham Lamb So Good?

Eating quality is a function of feeding and breeding.

Our lambs are principally grazed on the rich irrigated pastures of the Riverina. The mild climate allows year round production under natural conditions. Our breeding has produced superior carcase conformation and fat composition. This gives us meat that is both tender and has a sensational mouth feel.
