Providing High-Quality Dorper Lamb Meat

It’s Fresh

Farmers and ranchers raise lambs in nearly every state in the U.S., making fresh sheep available wherever you are. However, over 50% of the lambs that are consumed in the country are imported from Australia and New Zealand. When you choose ours, you are getting lambs that are up to 10,000 miles and 30 days fresher than those that are imported.

It is Available All Year Round

We closely manage the breeding of our sheep so that lambs are born all year round and meat is therefore available all year round.

It is Flavorful

The distinct flavor of our product is a result of natural pasture, superior genetics, and an excellent diet. Dorper Lamb is milder than wool sheep lamb meat, due to a lack of lanolin in its system, they do not have a waxy or gamey taste. Nor do they have thick exterior fat layer. This means that their meat is leaner and healthier!

It’s Better for the Environment

We believe in committing to quality and conservation. Lambs improve pasture and rangeland by cycling vital nutrients back through the soil. This process minimizes erosion and encourages native plant growth. In turn, sheep that have a steady diet of a variety of nutrient-filled grasses, legumes, and forage will produce succulent, tender meat. Also, buying local will decrease transportation related costs and emissions.

People have taste-tested the Dorper meat and liked it better than lamb from other breeds of sheep. Dorper do not grow a long wool coat, so they don't produce much lanolin, nor have a large layer of fat to nourish wool growth. This means that their meat is leaner and healthier!

packaged cuts

Lamb meat is a flavorful, nutrient-rich food and an excellent source of protein, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, niacin, zinc and selenium.  Lamb is a high-quality protein source, providing all nine essential amino acids your body needs for growth and maintenance. Our Dorper lambs are processed when they reach 100-110 pounds, so they are completely tender, lean, and with less fat at a younger age, there is less waste in processing to the final cuts.

 

  • Our commitment to humanely raising our meat lambs ensures they have:
  • No Tail Docking
  • No Castration
  • No Ear Tags
  • No Antibiotics
  • No Physical Modifications
  • No Factory Farms

Lambs stay with their mothers until they are weaned and continue to pasture in family groups.  They are not placed in feedlots or forced to consume predominantly-grain diet to fatten up at the end of their life.  Instead, they eat grass solely from our farm, along with a high-vitamin & mineral multi-grain supplement for a balanced diet.  We honor them and the purpose in their lives by giving them excellent care and gentle handling.
