Soy Free/Corn Free raised on sunshine, love, and rolling green pastures.
It was always our family's dream to raise what meat we could if we were going to remain omnivores. We started with chickens in 2017, then graduated to lamb in 2021. It is the ultimate way to know that the proteins we consume are ethically raised. We love them every minute of their lives. We thank them for the sustenance they give our family and we take them to a USDA licensed abattoir that handles their end to our standard. This is what we believe and now we're walking the walk.

We know everything our pasture raised lamb & mutton eat because we're the ones feeding it to them. No corn, no soy ever. Locally grown hay. Locally sourced oats, barley, alfalfa, sunflower & a wee bit of kelp for protein was given as an occasional treat and when they were building their rumens as wee lambs. We use grain sparingly to train them to bond with us. It makes handling much less stressful on the flock and let's be honest, sheep snuggles are the best!
What is the difference between lamb & mutton? In our case it mostly relates to the size of the cuts. The USDA defines it by age. Under two is a lamb. 2 years is a hogget (weird huh?) and 3 years+ is a mutton. Our oldest mutton is just barely 3. We've eaten both and it's nearly impossible to differentiate. Both have beautiful rich red meat and well balanced marbling. Either way you'll be pleased!
