Sheep and Grassland Specialist Poppy Frater talks to Richard Briggs of Briggs Shetland Lamb – a company which sells Shetland lamb across the country from London to Lerwick.  We discuss the importance of small-scale abattoirs, the value of coastal lamb to lamb eating quality and consumer health and access to a UK wide market.  Richard remains optimistic about the future of good quality lamb post-COVID disturbance and with a resurgence of the conscientious consumer asking about where their meat comes from.  We encourage others to seek similar opportunities for coastal lamb by talking with the whole supply chain from the producer to the consumer.
