WHEN SHOULD I ORDER?

  • Lamb will be available for farm pickup or delivery between late October 2019 through Easter and Eid al-Fitr 2020.
  • Hogget, Yearling Mutton, and Mutton is available at any time with a 2-1/2 month pre-order.

  • We will need about 2-1/2 to 3 months notice to get a slot at the processing facility. All of our animals are harvested humanely. We only trust a few processing facilities with our animals, and scheduling time slots can be difficult, especially around Holidays. Pre-orders allow us to manage the process and ensure that we have product for our customers.
