Reserve your LAMB for 2018!
We're now accepting pre-orders for our 2018 whole lamb. We brought our lambs onto the farm in May, and have been rotating them around our fields in an intensive rotational grazing system, where they get access to fresh pasture multiple times per week. In addition to all that delicious grass and clover, they've also been enjoying tasty vegetable treats whenever we have produce that's past its prime for humans.
The lambs will be harvested the first week of October. They're priced at $9 per pound, and will be priced according to their hanging weight, which we expect will be somewhere between 45-60 lbs for each lamb. Prices are based on individual animals, so prices will vary with the weight of each animal. However, if you'd prefer a larger or a smaller lamb, let us know and we're happy to oblige.
There will also be a $55 per animal cut and wrap fee from the butcher. We're working with Sylvana Meats, in Stanwood, and you'll communicate directly with them regarding what type of cuts you'd like from your lamb.
In total, each lamb will cost somewhere between $460 and $595, depending on the animal's weight. If a whole lamb is more than you'd like, find a friend or two who might want to split the order.
In order to make this process as humane for the lambs as possible, they will be slaughtered here at the farm, in the company of their caring student shepherds, by a professional mobile slaughter unit, and then transported to the butcher.
If you're buying a lamb and are interested in being present for the slaughter, please get in touch. We'd be glad to have you here for this solemn and meaningful event.
You can pre-order your lamb below for a $100 deposit per lamb.
