One full bag of lamb hearts totaling at about 1kg (2.2lbs). The finest New Zealand quality - you will notice that there is no unpleasant odor. There are 4-5 hearts per pack. The heart is a muscle and nutritionally similar to steaks or roasts. However, hearts have a higher amount of protein, B vitamins, selenium, CoQ10, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. It is said that 100g of heart, provides more than 200% of your B12 daily requirement! When it comes to preparation, stuffing, and then slow braising lamb hearts is the most popular cooking technique.
Using the whole animal is a practice that is still common in many countries around the world and is gaining momentum within the (health) conscious carnivore community. We at Horizon Farms we strongly believe in the whole animal butchery where less sought-after parts are also offered so nothing goes to waste. Usually - due to their low market price value, offals and less sought after cuts are sold domestically within the export country, and seldomly make it into export.
New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb takes it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. This is the finest lamb available. If you have never tried lamb or had a bad experience with lamb in the past we urge you to give New Zealand premium quality lamb a try. Our lamb comes from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand.

I used them whole with other whole vegetables in a pressure cooker. Hearty meal with a nice rustic taste.
Organ meats (grass-fed) being highly nutritious, these NZ lamb hearts with their delicate flavor and slightly firm texture are perfect for slicing into curries, stews and sautés. I portion the 1kg amount into several smaller freezer packs for convenience. Highly recommended.
Tender and meaty!
I love eating these every day, great price per weight too
Very fresh and tasty hearts that go great with fried onions, mushrooms and garlic on a bed of rice. I recommend even mixing in a little pork meat to add some great flavour to the dish.
