Now that shearing is done, and the sheep are grazing happily among the grasses and forbs, the future beckons. We are now thinking of our harvest at the end of the summer – LAMB!
We think our lamb is pretty special, for many reasons. All summer our sheep graze summer pastures making sure they get the sweetest and best parts of the pasture. This helps keep them healthy and happy so they grow well.
That’s all our lambs eat, GRASS, just like nature intended.
NO chemicals or antibiotics are used to keep our flock healthy. We prefer to prevent health issues by good management. We don’t do things like dehorn or dock tails – we don’t need to due to the breeds we have chosen. These breeds are also perfectly suited for a grass-based diet – they get better with age.
Grass fed and finished meats are much higher in omega 3 fatty acids. The University of Ulster in Ireland reports that grassfed lamb and beef have “much higher levels of long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are known to enhance human health”
A study done by California State University “suggest that grass-based diets elevate precursors for Vitamin A and E, as well as cancer fighting antioxidants such as glutathione (GT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity as compared to grain-fed contemporaries.”
Even Oprah likes grass-fed meats, particularly lamb because it has less marbling, once the fat on the edges if cut off, it becomes a very lean piece of meat.
Once you try our lovely lamb, you will realize that lamb truly is an everyday luxury!
