Am I confused, or does New Zealand have so much lamb they can export it all over the world? And if that is the case, in the UK where do all their lambs go if you can only find New Zealand lamb in the supermarkets? When we were in Scotland we saw a LOT of lambs. It was spring and the lambs were bountiful. But in the shops all we could find was New Zealand lamb. If we wanted Scottish lamb we had to go to the butcher. Now, given the choice I would rather buy local. It is grown, slaughtered and butchered without encountering freezers and accumulating travel miles. Having eaten both choices I can tell you that the local bred lamb was far better. The New Zealand lamb is expensive but still nearly 50 percent cheaper than local lamb. Something is wrong here. Our Karoo lamb is some of the finest I’ve ever come across. It is not cheap but still works out at less per kg than what the New Zealand lamb cost us in Scotland. I’ll never complain about the price again though as I can buy South African lamb at any supermarket here.
