lamb naturally seasoned by the sea
East and West Coast, North Island
“We are custodians of our environments.”
Provenance is a word you’ll hear used frequently by Coastal Lamb farmers. It’s the essence of the brand and of the story of generations of families who farm by the sea, and who are committed to the strict standards of environmental farming required to be a Harmony supplier.
Ten years ago, Richard and Sue Redmayne launched the Coastal Lamb brand from their Turakina farm. Today, 17 families on the east and west coasts of the North Island are part of the Harmony Coastal Lamb family, producing lamb that is ‘salt-kissed’, embodying the special character of its unique coastline setting.
“We are custodians of our environments,” says Richard. “We employ sustainable farming practices to produce the highest quality lamb and to also protect our farms for future generations. To do this, we control every aspect of land management, production and supply chain, including owning our own fleet of trucks to ensure animals are taken care of throughout the process.”
Wetlands have been developed across the farms, fenced off to protect the flora and fauna within as well as acting as a soil nutrient filter. Sand dunes run through areas of farmland and these are protected by plantings of grasses and pine trees, the trees also providing shelter for the stock and to stabilise the soil.
And it’s this coastal environment that gives Harmony Coastal Lamb its tender, light flavour and succulence.
You could say it’s naturally seasoned by the sea.
