News Traders

Introducing Victoria Lea…

Suffolk Market Events are proud to introduce a new trader at their farmers’ markets, Victoria Lea, founder of The Lamb Charcuterie Company.

Victoria started her business in February 2017 having developed a love of Herdwick sheep during school trips to the Lake District. Having completed a degree in Equine Science at Writtle College, she bought a small herd of this hardy hill sheep breed dating back to the 12th century – they’re a dual purpose breed whose meat is highly sought after and high in omega 3 oils.

On the continent Charcuterie is made with lots of different meats, however Victoria’s company is unique in England as it only uses Herdwick meat. Currently the charcuterie is made by another company to Victoria’s recipes, although her aim is to make it at home herself. She still works full time for the NHS whilst also tending the sheep and her fledgling business with occasional help from  family.

Victoria says “the sheep are quite good and I do try to train them to a feed bucket, however as the flock is expanding and Herdwicks do tend to be a feisty breed, I am looking into getting a sheep dog to help!”

Her company is doing really well in such a short period of time and Victoria plans to grow the business by attending more market and food-related events, doing more wholesale to local farm shops, delis and restaurants and developing her website –

You can find Victoria at our regular Sudbury Farmers’ Markets on the last Friday of the month in St Peter’s Church from 9.30am – 2pm and we hope she will attend more events in the New Year.

We wish her, and her feisty Herdwicks, the best of luck!
