Our young Ontario lamb is raised on free-range pasture, and like all of our animals, is treated with loving kindness for a stress-free life.
The flock is raised on no-spray organic grasslands, where they are free to roam all spring, summer and fall. Over the winter, they eat 100% non-GMO grass and hay, cut from the same naturally-grown pastures.
They are raised without antibiotics or any other drugs or growth promoters. Just all-natural, free-range lamb, grown the way our great-grandparents used to eat.
Our lamb is drug-free, antibiotic-free, raised on GMO-free & spray-free grass and hay, and with zero animal-product feeds.
The tender meat is processed at a regulated, government inspected and family-owned local butcher shop. Each side of lamb is dry-aged, then artisanally hand-butchered into individual cuts. Then they’re vacuum-sealed so they will stay fresh in your freezer for up to a year.
We offer our lamb as a side, half-side, or whole lamb, butchered into a nice selection of cuts for your freezer. The video below, while not done exactly the same way as our butchering process, gives a nice overview:
Choose the size of your lamb order
You can choose a whole, half or quarter lamb. Like our sides of beef and pork, the price is based on the dressed weight / hanging side weight of your lamb:
- Whole lamb — 50 lbs dressed weight — $14.45/pound.
- Half lamb — 25 lbs dressed weight — $14.95/pound.
- Quarter lamb — 12.5 lbs dressed weight — $15.45/pound.
The above weights are based on the dressed weight of a lamb, which means the initial hanging weight of the sides before dry-aging and butchering. The total weight of your lamb cuts will be about 67% of the dressed weight, after butchering into individual cuts and removal of unnecessary bone and fat. This works out to 33.6 lbs of cuts for a whole lamb, 16.8 lbs for a half lamb, and 8.4 lbs for a quarter lamb.
A typical quarter lamb will yield approximately:
- 0.75 lb rack of lamb,
- 1 lb loin chops,
- 0.75 lb lamb shank
- 2 lbs leg roasts,
- 1.8 lbs shoulder chops,
- 1.1 lbs ground or cubed lamb (choose below),
- 1 lb soup bones — also great for dog treats!
A half lamb will give you double those amounts, and a whole lamb will give you 4× the amounts. Sorry, no organ meats are available. Each individual cut may vary ±5% in weight, so we check each order to make sure that we give you the same total weight for everything.
We deliver our lamb to you fresh-frozen in individually vacuum-sealed cuts.
