It’s nearly fall and around here, that means it’s time for our lambs to go our customers. This year we 18 lambs. We’ll keep a couple to replace a breeder, and sell the rest. They’re approaching five months of age and weigh about 100 lbs.
Would you like to enjoy our incredibly tender, mild tasting lamb? Here’s how you can enjoy one.
You either have to live in Utah, or come to Utah to pick up your lamb once it’s cut and wrapped. We are selling you a live lamb, and we take it to D9 Custom Cuts in Paragonah as a courtesy to you. D9 processes your lamb to your specification.
This entire process is really easy.
- You buy either a whole of half lamb. The whole is $200 and a half is $100.
- We need full payment before the lamb leaves our premises.
- We select a date to haul the animal to D9 Custom Cuts. We notify you of that date.
- We provide you with the information for D9 Custom Cuts. It is your responsibility to contact them.
- You call D9 Custom Cuts and tell them how you like your lamb cut and wrapped. They will tell you when it can be picked up.
- You must pick up your lamb they day they tell you or you will incur and extra storage fee.
What do you get when you purchase our lamb?
A whole lamb will produce about 33-35 lbs of cut and wrapped meat. You select how you like it cut. Keep in mind, the more cutting and processing (as in cutting into kebabs or grinding) they more the butcher will charge you.
Normally, you’ll get two chop racks (you may want one cut into chops), the ribs and riblets, two shoulder roasts and a couple of arm steaks, two whole hind legs (we like to have them cut in half, with a couple of the roasts boned, rolled and tied), about 5 or so pounds of kebab meat, and about 5 lbs of ground lamb. You may also ask for the tongue, liver, and kidneys, as well as extra bones.
If you are purchasing a half a lamb, you will get exactly half of the lamb from front to back, so it’s one rack, one rib rack, riblets, a shoulder roast, an arm steak, one whole hind leg which you can have cut, boned rolled and tied, a couple pounds of kebab meat, and about 3 lbs of ground lamb. Your half lamb will weigh about 15-17 lbs and will easily fit into refrigerator/freezer compartment.
If you are reading this post and live locally, we are taking orders and payment for lambs on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s at two local Farmer’s Markets. Wednesday you will find us at the Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market from 4-7 pm. The market site is at Hoover St and 100 W (behind Bulloch Drug, and across from Mike’s Tavern). On Saturdays we’re at the Year Round Farmer’s Market in the IFA Parking lot from 9 until noon. This lot is located on S Main.
You may also send us an email. We’ll send you a form to fill out and return with your payment. Our email is we4gals at fourcountrygals.com.
Just a quick note of caution. Don’t plan on waiting to place your order. Our lambs sell very quickly as returning customers know the quality, and have been asking when they are ready. If you think you’ll wait and pick them up at the auction, it’s been 5 years since our lambs have had to go to the auction, and when they did, they took top dollar each time.
