Asda is to stock lamb sourced from sheep farmers on the North York Moors during the autumn lamb season.

The lamb, raised on farms within the national park, will be supplied by Seven Hill Farmers. Some 1,200 lambs a month will be supplied to Asda from September to December each year during the course of the £1m three-year deal, with lamb chops, shoulders and half-leg joints going into 32 Asda stores nationwide from 7 September.

The deal was brokered by English Farming and Food Partnerships.
