We have LAMB!
We're now accepting pre-orders for our whole and half lamb!
We purchased our lambs from local sheep dairy Glendale Shepherd in early April when they were 10 weeks old. Since then they've been enjoying fresh pasture as we move them multiple times a week all over the farm under our intensive rotational grazing system. And they've also had tasty vegetable treats whenever we have produce that's past its prime for humans.
We only have ten lambs this year, and we expect them to go fast, so if you're interested, get your reservations in quickly!
The lambs will be harvested sometime in early October. They are priced at $9 per pound, and will be priced according to their hanging weight, which we expect will be somewhere between 30-45 lbs for each lamb. In addition to this, there will be a $55 per animal cut and wrap fee from the butcher (if getting a half lamb, the cut-and-wrap fee will be $27.50).
In order to make this process as humane for the lambs as possible, they will be slaughtered here at the farm by a professional mobile slaughter unit, and then transported to the butcher we've chosen to work with, Silvana Meats in Stanwood. Customers will then communicate directly with Silvana Meats about the specific types of cuts they would like from their lamb. When all the lambs are ready, we here at OFS will pick up everyone's lambs from Silvana Meats (which at that point will be frozen), and bring them back here to the farm to be picked up that same day by customers.
You can pre-order your lamb below for a $75 deposit per half lamb.
