Grass-Fed Lamb

We've partnered with our friends at Lost Sheep Ranch who also raise organic, grass-fed Katahdin sheep. Together our sheep are 100% pasture-raised and never fed corn or soybean feeds, with hay supplemented in winter after winter stockpiled pastures are grazed. Utilizing management-intensive rotational grazing, we are simulating the massive bison herds on the plains of North America from generations ago, thus improving the health of our soil, the health of the pasture, the health of the livestock, and ultimately the health of the community through the high-quality lamb we offer. Moving the flock with high frequency and supplementing the flock with organic, free-choice minerals keeps the flock in optimal health. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! 

Deposits for grass-fed lamb wholes or halves are accepted in the online shop or retail cuts available using our online form for pick-up.


Lambs Born on Pasture

Lost Sheep Ranch begins lambing in April when the pastures are lush and the weather is favorable--replicating natural systems. Pasture is abundant and within days a lamb will begin learning from its mother which plants to eat. By the second day, a lamb is able to keep up with the flock--and fast enough to evade attempts at capture for ear tagging and weighing. Lambs are transported to us in late summer--before the boys are mature enough to breed.


A Lambs Diet

A sheep's diet consists of about 40% forbs and woody brush--plants most would mislabel as "weeds." Our pastures are not mowed, allowing an abundance of wildflowers and other native forbs to grow, which with their deeper root structures are able to pull minerals from deeper in the soil profile to the surface. The sheep prefer these plants first after a move to a new field because of the mineral concentrations and health benefits they provide--nature's immune boosters!


100% Grass-Fed Meat

After about 7 months of rotationally grazing fresh pasture and sequestering carbon into our soils the lambs will reach an approximate market weight of 70-800 lbs, yielding 40-50% finished cuts depending upon customer cut preferences. 100% clean, genuinely all-natural protein fed by sunlight and fresh pasture. A new option that our partnership with Lost Sheep Ranch affords is the ability to hold lambs over winter to put on extra weight--120+ pounds by the following June (~14 month old lambs).
