Local Farm Fresh Lamb Available: Grass-Fed Grain-Finished!

More on the lamb for sale. This is a bit of a repeat of the last email, however this post has pricing and delivery details.

A good friend of ours, Valerie Samutin, is a lamb farmer and manages a co-op of local grass-fed lamb farmers, getting the lambs to market. The co-op is new in the last couple of years and they currently sell mostly to restaurants and farmer’s markets.

The co-op currently has about 10 extra lambs ready for harvest and needing buyers! These are gorgeous, prime, luscious lamb, pasture-raised, grain-finished with non GMO’s, no antibiotics, no hormones, all natural. This means that we can get this delicious meat at wholesale prices right now!

Lamps are sold whole or half and that’s how you order. We aren’t able to order specific cuts at this price, but the half lambs are divided as equally as possible.

If you are getting a half lamb and want organ meat, please say so. Otherwise, it is not included (because most people don’t want it). There are 10 lambs so 10 packs of organ meat, this is not divided. Speak up :)

WHEN

Lambs are ready for processing now. They will be delivered to Lexington the week of 10/8 (next week), time and place to be determined.

How Farm to Fork Animals are Priced

Animals are priced “live weight”. The avg LIVE weight of these lambs is 149 lbs — this is when the lamb is priced and we pay wholesale $2.75/pound.

The avg PROCESSED (or “hot carcass”) weight is 79 lbs (about 53% of the live weight). This is what you get and it’s cut into standard cuts (like you find at the grocery store, list below).

Detailed pricing info is below.

If you’ve never bought meat this way, all you need is freezer space. We always buy in bulk directly from our farmer. It’s the most economical way to get clean, healthy meat!

STANDARD CUTS

– SHOULDER, options: shoulder steaks, shoulder roasts
– NECK, options: sliced, put into ground lamb
– RIB CHOPS
– LOIN CHOPS
– LEG OF LAMB, options: leg of lamb, lamb leg steaks
– SHANKS
– LAMB BREAST, options: rolled and tied, ground into lamb burger

Pricing Details

  • + $20 delivery
  • + $75 processing
