Pasture Raised Lamb Western Mass

What do I get?

Here’s how the sample lamb pictured above finished out. Note: Not all lambs will weigh the same going in and coming out of processing. A lamb is an organic thing - everyone weighs slightly differently just like humans.

The following is an example of how we normally have our lambs cut. After almost 30 years of eating our own animals, we have determined these cuts to be the best for our family.
