Truly Pastured Lamb

Lambs are born in late spring, just in time for peak pasture growth, and spend the season grazing alongside their mothers. Because Icelandic sheep are seasonal breeders with naturally short tails, we don’t castrate ram lambs, dock tails or wean lambs from their mothers. From April to October we move the flock every 24 hours to fresh ground, and give them mineral salt, kelp meal, and water from our spring to round out the diverse grasses and “weeds” they forage on our mountainside.

Healthy Pasture, Healthy meat

Resting our pasture between moves for encourages a diversity of pasture plants, controls soil erosion and fertility run-off, and leaves natural habitat for wild cottontails, hummingbirds and many other little creatures. Our lambs feast on clovers, yarrow, plantain, dandelion, and a variety of trees: a whole herbal farmacy packed into every tender, sweet cut.
