American Herdwick-bred Lamb & Late Lamb ~ Updated 3/15/17
Herdwick meat is the original "slow food". Herdwyck Lamb is exceptionally tender and mild with a flavor unique to the breed and its forage. Slow to mature, older lambs, in the U.K, up to as much as 4 years of age, are sold as "Late Lamb" due to the mild and tender nature of this breed. Beyond age four, for the most part meat from older ewes, is sold as Mutton. We harvest as much of the animal as legally possible by USDA inspection, including tongue, liver, kidney, all bones, hide and horns. An excellent yield of meat to the bone, these animals are ideal converters of forage to food and are a very sustainable breed. Our Abbatoire, Double L Ranch, is a Certified Humane facility.

Our lambs, raised outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, with plenty of room, primarily, if not entirely, on lush green grasses and scrumptious hay. If a grain supplement is needed, we use only non-GMO certified organic feed, or non-GMO spent brewery grains. HOWEVER - In as of 2015, our lamb is 100% grass/hay fed.
Accolades: Chef Jay Lippin, Kittle House Restaurant & Inn - 2016 - "I cut into the Herdwick Lamb prosciutto I made - the best tasting meat I have ever had!" 2017 - "I served Herdwick Lamb neck tonight, and the customers are "flipping out about how good it is!" 2017 - "By far the best lamb we've ever served." Chef Jay further reports that Kittle sells out, every time, of our lamb, AND, customers now call ahead to reserve his lamb dishes ahead!

Grocery Store Alternative.... what would you eat?
Lamb from the grocery.... either raised or at least "finished" in feedlots. In such close proximity, with wet areas, their health is greatly at risk, so antibiotics are a standard routine. Here, these animals will be experiencing added stress due to over-crowding and lack of shade. If the food you eat experiences stress while growing, what might it do to you when you eat it? Worse, imported from New Zealand (8,989 miles) or elsewhere - imagine, the carbon footprint is huge, the meat unhealthy and inhumane, and effect on your neighborhood farm business, deadly!
