Grass-fed Vs. Store-bought–What’s the difference?
Have you ever tried Lamb? Some say that lamb is too strong or too fatty for their taste. Sadly, most of these people have formed their opinion based on their experiences with commercially raised, grocery-store lamb. The reason people say that our lamb is a delicacy is because of its mild flavor and that it’s low in fat. We raise Katahdin lamb which has a “milder” flavor than other lamb you may have tasted because they are hair sheep and do not have wool. Their flavor is quickly becoming popular with chefs and consumers alike.
Because grass fed lamb from Stonewall Farm is so lean and tender we often have to warn customers not to overcook it. Our lamb should be cooked until it reaches an internal temperature of 160o – no more. Our lamb achieves its fullest flavor when served medium-rare.
People want to know where their food comes from and they want to know that it is safe and healthy to eat. That is one reason that we offer you a local source of great tasting lamb that is free from hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products. Our lamb is process locally at your choice of USDA and State inspected family butchers.

After the lamb is dropped off, we will call you with the weight and you can send the remainder of the payment at that time. You will then contact the butcher to talk to them about how you want your lamb processed. They will give you a date for picking up your fresh pasture raised lamb. You must pay Stonewall Farm before picking up your order.
Remember to take boxes or coolers to transport your frozen lamb home and remember that your lamb can be stored up to 12 months in a freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit (0 F).
