About Te Mana
While breeding sheep to be healthier and better adapted to high country environments, Te Mana discovered something never before seen in lamb: sheep with a different type of fat, an intramuscular fat, higher in Omega-3 with marbling on a micro‐scale.
This is not simply lamb. This is Te Mana LambTM – food from heaven. With 30 days finishing on chicory pastures the full potential for Omega-3 is released, and because of its unique composition, Te Mana Lamb doesn’t behave like regular lamb during preparation and cooking. It is more versatile, retaining its shape and texture better, and more forgiving of over enthusiastic cooking!
Te Mana Lamb is aged 21 days, and the consistency and quality of the final product is underpinned by rigorous standards and scientific methodology. The result is an entirely new kind of lamb. Produced by our farming families for you.
Free roaming in the high country of New Zealand – Te Mana Lamb is 100% free farmed and raised in New Zealand’s iconic hill and high country. Just 17 committed founding farmers were carefully chosen to raise these animals on their remote South Island stations.
The unique combination of new breed, rearing location and conditions, farming practices and finishing grazing on chicory herb pastures for 30 days, has led to naturally high levels of healthy Omega-3 and polyunsaturated fats.
