Orkney's Best - the best food from Orkney
are we allowed a small toot on our trumpet?
"Compared to the lamb we purchase locally (I buy it only from the R**** F*** 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 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.

do you trust meat labels....?

food labels are still a trap for the unwary and even when buying

from the biggest names , not all is always what it says it is.

If meat is "cheap" there just has to be a catch..

and it will probably be impossible for you to

know for certain where in the World it originated

so why should you trust us....?

because one label is different,the


Protected Designation of Origin

However, very, very little of the beef and lamb

which is raised, or sold, on Orkney

is allowed to carry this E.U.Certification..

ours does, ALL of it.

The Protected Designation of Origin states that:

"Orkney Beef (& lamb) is 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."
