Sweet marjoram lamb with summer leaves


Add delicious fresh vegetables to roast lamb to celebrate National Lamb Day.

The industry hope Kiwis here and around the world will recognise this incredible feat and celebrate it by enjoying lamb for dinner on Sunday February 15, which is National Lamb Day.

This year marks the 133rd anniversary of one of the most significant milestones in New Zealand’s sheep meat industry. On this day in 1882, William Davidson and Thomas Brydone achieved the remarkable, by launching the first shipment of frozen sheep meat from Port Chalmers in Otago on the Dunedin, bound for London.

Beef + Lamb New Zealand CEO, Rod Slater says this day also gives New Zealanders an opportunity to recognise the hard work of our farmers and as a nation, a reason to be proud.

“So let us here in New Zealand celebrate with some delicious New Zealand lamb,” says Mr Slater.

Sweet marjoram lamb with summer leaves includes baby cos, baby spinach, radishes and marjoram.
