Orkney's Best - the best food from Orkney
Quote of the Month
"Compared to the lamb we purchase locally (I buy it only from the Royal Farm in Windsor) yours was much more tender and lean, and had a background sweetness that made it extremely delicious". A.M. April 2014


visitors come to Orkney for many different

reasons – birds, free fishing, walking, diving

and archaeology are only a few of the attractions

many return year after year

for, despite the wind turbines,

it's still mostly visually stunning and

an oasis of peace and calm. 

world-famous for the quality of it’s beef, lamb

and fish - quite simply, the best in Orkney is as

good as it gets - Orkney is washed by the

Gulf Stream, with a mild (if windy!) climate and long summer evenings when the sun hardly sets.

lush grazing, clean seas, virtually no pollution,

crystal clear air it's a good place for

humans and animals alike.

maybe it is rather a long way to come for

the Sunday joint, a pack of sausages or some of the wonderful Westray fish but with a few clicks of the mouse you can have A Taste of Orkney on your table.

Our aim is very simple: to provide you with the best.

Labels are a confusing trap for the unwary

even when you buy from the biggest names in the business,

not all is always what it seems , still less what it used to be.

What’s NOT on the label is as important as what IS

and never more so than with meat,

if it’s at cut price there just has to be a catch

and one of the many catches is that it could be VERY difficult to

know for certain where in the World the meat came from

but NOT with ours

all the beef and lamb you will see here was

born, raised and prepared, under the

strict conditions of

Orkney's Protected Designation of Origin

which describes why it


"Orkney Beef (& lamb) s derived from cattle ( & sheep)

born, reared and slaughtered in Orkney.

The distinctly different texture and flavour of Orkney beef & lamb is

largely due to the topography, geology and climate

of the Orkney Islands which imparts specific characteristics

to the grass and herbage providing the main diet.

The Geographical area is limited to the group of islands in the

North Atlantic off the North Coast of Scotland known as the Orkney Islands."

and guarantees that

every stage was carried out

entirely on Orkney
