Read more about our Pasture Raised 100% Grass Fed Lamb:
We believe that animals should be raised in a way that mimics nature and ALWAYS treated with the utmost respect and care.
Our herd of Katahdin sheep are raised in their natural habitat - on lush green pastures and fields. They are rotationally grazed, never spending more than a day in the same place during each grazing cycle. On average the sheep won't regraze the same ground until at least a month has passed. This allows the pasture time to regrow and soak up nutrients.
Our sheep have free access to wholesome and nutritious food.
During the warm seasons, the sheep are free to graze acres and acres of grass lands. During the cooler times, they are provided access to shelter for protection from harsh weather and are supplemented with our very own farm grown organic grass hay. They always have free choice access to certified organic minerals and Redmond Sea Salt.
This is truly pasture raised 100% grass fed lamb!!
When you raise healthy animals in a way that mimics nature, you create the most nutrient dense foods! We let our sheep be sheep - they're free to run wild, kick up dirt, browse lush green pastures, nap under the shade of trees, and "migrate" together as a herd through our large tracts of land. We encourage these instinctual behaviors. Happy animals that live in a low stress environment create delicious, healthy food.
Why do we raise sheep this way?
Sheep are meant to live their lives outside, eating grass and foraging for other pasture plants. Being ruminants, they are designed to consume plants only and should never be fed grain. While the commodity lamb industry produces large quantities of lamb very quickly by feeding cheap gmo grains, the sheep suffer because of it. Confined and fed a steady diet of grain, they get sick easily which is why the industry relies so heavily on the regular feeding of antibiotics to keep them alive just long enough to process. For us, this is completely unacceptable and it's why we raise our sheep in a natural, pasture based environment feeding only grass. Just like with our beef, pork, and chicken, it takes MUCH longer to raise sheep this way and costs significantly more, but to us it's worth it. On grass alone, it takes DOUBLE the amount of time compared to the commercial lamb industry to raise sheep, requiring more than a year of grazing time out in the fields. While grass fed lamb is often considered lean, that's almost always due to the animals not being raised long enough. That is not the case here on our farm! We let our sheep grow until they reach their full potential and will NEVER rush the process. We would rather have less lamb available for sale than process an animal too soon. This extra time creates real lamb with beautiful marbling, a deep red color, and most importantly - intense FLAVOR! We've had many customers tell us this is the best lamb they've ever tasted and we couldn't agree more. We're convinced you'll feel the same way too.
