Why does Lucie's Lambs uses a pasture based system?
Rearing the flock on the rich permanent pasture leys has many benefits for both the sheep but also for human consumption:
Allows the sheep to convert the forage into milk and muscle as nature intended.
More sustainable method of rearing sheep- no inputs, not intensive
Low carbon footprint than more intensive methods- carbon is able to be stored in the grass rather than being emitted when ploughing occurs.
Higher animal welfare, never housed and live as nature intended as well as all five freedoms being met
Much healthier for the consumer, lower saturated : unsaturated fats
