Dorset/Hampshire Lambs from Briarmead Farm. Traditional English large breed lambs raised and finished on organic pastures in the Shenandoah Valley.
This is a DEPOSIT for Custom Butchered Grassfed Lamb. The final price will be $4 per pound hanging weight PLUS $95 for Custom Butchering for an average total cost of $300 less the initial deposit.
An average Lamb is between 50 lbs. and 65 lbs and will yield between 30-40 lbs of meat. Final payment will be invoiced directly from the farm, and collected prior to your picking-up the Lamb at the butcher or farm.

A whole Lamb requires very little freezer space, about what an average family would bring back in meat from a weekly shopping trip.
NVPG lambs are born and raised on pasture and are free to range and graze as they would in nature. Guard dogs protect them from local Coyotes and Foxes - to prevent them from becoming donations to the predators of the Commonwealth.
An increasing body of scientific evidence points to the fact that a major benefit of raising and finishing animals on well managed pasture is a healthier product. Compared with industrial feedlot animals, meat from grass-fed Lamb has less total fat, less saturated fat, reduced cholesterol, and fewer calories. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and “conjugated linoleic acid,” or CLA. These studies also confirm that the health benefits come directly from the grass eaten by the animals on pasture. Substituting “organic” grain for an “organic” product does not translate into similar results. The good is in the green™.

We are really enjoying the whole Briarmead lamb which we purchased. Very tasty. Only complaint was the butcher was a bit of a hike from the DC Metro area. Kate on 17th Jan 2014
Briarmead Lamb is fabulous. We have been enjoying it for over 10 years now. We can find no other lamb like it in the States. It reminds us of the lamb we grew up with in Yorkshire. Keep up the good work! Unknown on 8th Nov 2013
