comes from Maine-lineage Katahdin Hair Sheep which was bred specifically for their meat, without the big wooly coat that needs shearing. Katahdins don't produce as much lanolin, so their meat has a mild, delicate and wonderfully-balanced flavor. The meat proves that grass-fattened lamb can produce both nutritious and delicious meat. Our succulent Katahdin Lamb is even for those who think they don't like lamb will be in for a treat!
Katahdin is available during the springtime. They are extremely happy on Sequatchie Cove Farm in Tennessee, even during the hot summer months. Bill and Miriam Keener and their children Ann and Kelsey and Miriam's parents Jim and Emily Wright manage Sequatchie Cove Farm. The Keeners bring together people who want to have a relationship to the land, the farm and the farmers who produce their food.
are frolicking on the fields of Cameron, Missouri. Farmers Bridgit and Sug (short for Sugar) raise Horned Dorsets, a rare breed that we have to eat in order to save. The farm is also a training ground for Boarder Collies that Bridgit raises. On the farm these beautiful dogs practice herding the sheep that she sells for market. Reality Canine Center & Sheep Station maintains 175 registered Horned Dorset ewes and are proud to be the second largest breeder in the United States. All feed, hay, creep and grain are raised locally so that they know exactly what goes into their lambs at all times. Horned Dorset's have always been known as a meat breed, they produce a substantial carcass that is tender and very mild in flavor.
*At any given time we may be working additional lamb farmers like John Neumeister, who raises Romney and Navajo Churro lamb in northern Oregon.
