Grassfed Lamb: deposit for whole lamb
Make a deposit to reserve your whole lamb for this fall.
Here's the info on our flock:
These lambs were born in winter 2020-2021 and graze all through the grass-growing seasons, eating hay in the winter to supplement. They are from our friend's flock, a flock which we have contributed to and mixed animals with over the years! These lambs eat not only grass but a wide range of forbs and herbs in their pasture and we give them kelp, salt, and other basic mineral supplements to ensure their health. We wormed them naturally mixing up garlic, mugwort and black walnut leaves. The flock gets a new slice of our 6 acre pasture every couple days, keeping them and the grass in best condition.
We will have lamb available during fall of this year; the exact dates TBD. We are selling them as whole lambs, meaning you get to order the cuts you prefer and the type of processing. We get a mixture of roasts, ground lamb, ribs, cubed stew meat, and chops. Since we starting raising them ourselves lamb has become our favorite meat and with a meal of potatoes, lamb burgers and tomatoes and salad we can eat food that was 100% raised on the farm.
We charge $6.60 per pound, hanging weight and a $65 butchering fee. If you would also like the pelt or sheepskin, you can buy one for $75 if you are already buying a whole lamb. We're expecting our lambs to have hanging weights between 35 and 50 lb.
We are now asking for $100 deposits for the lamb as we arrange butcher dates. You can also pay your deposit with cash or check.
You'll need about 2 cubic feet of freezer space for the cuts from one whole lamb.
You can split the lamb with someone else, but just have one person pay and communicate with us or the butcher about processing and cuts.
Hanging weight is the weight of the animal minus the pelt, the feet, organs and other inedible parts. The total weight of your cuts will be slightly less than the hanging weight due to deboning & trimming.
We will sell pelts separately as well later in the season for $100 each.
