We are now taking orders for lambs that will be ready between December 2011 and February 2012. Only a limited number are available. Make your reservation today by completing this form. You can find all the details about ordering and processing below the form.
How much will it cost?
Our lamb is $4.80/lb hanging weight plus a $60 processing fee. Your total price will vary depending on the weight of the individual animal. A 100lb lamb will have a hanging weight of about 40lbs, so will cost about $192 plus the $60 processing fee. A lamb that hangs at 40lbs will yield about 25lbs of meat, so the cost per pound of meat in your freezer will be about $10/lb.
To help you compare that price, lamb selling in the grocery store currently selling from $4.30/lb for stew meat to $14/lb for loin chops. Ground lamb in the store is selling for between $5/lb and $8/lb. Of course, our grass-fed lamb is much tastier and better for you!
There is a $75 deposit due to secure your lamb. The balance is due at slaughter. There is a $20 surcharge for 1/2 lambs, due with the deposit.
How much meat will I get?
The exact amount of meat will vary based on the size of the lamb. A 100lb lamb will have a hanging weight of about 40lbs. The cut weight (meat in your freezer) will be around 25lbs.
The meat from a whole lamb will fit in about 2 grocery bags. A whole dressed lamb will fit in most refrigerator freezers.
You will choose exactly how the lamb is cut, but you can expect a mix of cuts that you would see in the grocery store such as roasts, steaks, stew meat and ground lamb. You will have lots of options.
Our lambs are raised 100% on rotationally grazed grass. Grass-fed lamb has 2-4 times more omega-3s than grain-fed meat. Grass-fed lamb is also lower in LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). The breed of sheep we raise, Katahdin, are bred to produce great tasting meat on a grass-fed diet.
