Thirteen Mile Organic, Grassfed Lamb
Yes, we are marketing our grassfed, organic lamb again, directly to individuals, stores and restaurants! Our lamb is still certified organic by the Montana Department of Agriculture as it has been for years. In keeping with our goal of maximizing animal, pasture and human health, we will be harvesting our whole 2017 lamb crop between August and December. Young animals in their first season of growth, still on pasture, yield tender, easy-to-digest meat with a healthy fatty acid profile and mild flavor. *
Our flock of a little over 100 ewes is dominantly Romney, with some Corriedale, Border Leicester and South African Meat Merino genetics in the mixture. We stick with the medium frame animals with medium grade wool; this seems to yield the mild meat we prefer and the lustrous, soft, long wool fleeces that dominate our wool products.
You many order a whole lamb or selected cuts, at the prices listed below. When you order lamb from us you will know that it was born and raised here, raised on organic pasture and hay from Thirteen Mile Farm. The ewes occasionally graze on one neighbor’s adjacent field. We feed no antibiotics and hormones.
Our lambs are butchered at Amsterdam Meats in a neighboring town. It is a well-managed, clean, and efficient, State-inspected facility. Short transport and quick service mean the the animals and meat are handled carefully, minimally, and quickly. Without such small-scale, decentralized meat processing plants, sustainable livestock agriculture would be lost. We value the labor, skill and thought that goes into their entire process.
