Sorry, not available for shipping. Pick up at farm only.
Whole freezer lambs are available in late October, but must be preordered as I have limited availability. Lambs are slaughtered and cut to your specifications at Adams Farm, a USDA facility in Athol, MA.
Freezer lambs are priced $8.50/# hanging weight. Hanging weight is the carcass dressed and ready to be cut up into portions. I usually have a range of hanging weights from 35-55#, which translates to a retail price of approximatey $300-$475 per lamb. Depending on how many boneless cuts you request, the final weight of the meat cut and packaged is approximately 75% of the hanging weight. For example, if you purchase a lamb weighing 45# hanging weight you will pay $382.5 and receive about 34# of meat cut to your specifications, cryovaced, frozen and boxed.
My sheep are raised predominantly on pastureduring the growing season and hay during the winter, with a small amount of supplementation with organic grain. Ewes get grain at end of pregnancy and during lactation, and lambs get a small amount of grain to keep them growing steadily. I use rotational grazing to optimize both the health of the animal and the land. They always have access to salt, mineral mix, and kelp.
