The New Forest Food & Drink Festival touches the coast path so this is the moment to mention the existence of rare Keyhaven Lamb.
As part of the festival, Aubrey Farm atÂ Keyhaven will be open this Friday 4 November and Saturday 5 November 9.30am-3pm. Its shop, known as Lisa’s Larder, will be having one of its occasional openings.
Keyhaven Lamb, like Romney Salt Marsh Lamb in Kent, has a spacial taste enhanced by the sea salt in the grass. You can sometimes see the sheep grazing near Sturt Pond at the start of the Hurst Spit.
This Friday and Saturday there will be a Â lamb dish (Â£4.95) available to enjoy in the marquee from noon.
Keyhaven is just beyond Milford-on-Sea.
