Grassfed Lamb: deposit for whole lamb
Make a deposit to reserve your lamb for January 2023!
Here's the info on our flock:
These lambs were born in winter 2021-2022 and have been grazing all through the grass-growing seasons. They are from our friend's flock, a flock which we have contributed to and mixed animals with over the years! Along with grass, these lambs eat 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. The flock gets a new slice of our 6 acre pasture every of couple days.
We will have lamb available the last week of January or first week of February 2023. We are selling them as whole lambs, meaning you get to order the cuts and type of processing you prefer. We like to get a mixture of roasts, ground lamb, ribs, cubed stew meat, and chops. Since we starting raising them 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 $6.80 per pound hanging weight and a $75 butchering fee. If you would also like the pelt or sheepskin, you can buy one for $110 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, either paid here or with cash or check to us in person. The remainder of payment will be due upon receipt of your meat. Cash or check preferred.
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 $135 each.
