The main line of business of Frisky Lamb Farm is producing slaughter lambs of superior quality right here in Broome County, NY. We raise our lambs on pasture using rotational grazing so that they always have lush, fresh grass to eat. We feed them no grain. This results in happy, frisky, healthy lambs whose meat is not only tender and delectable, but also healthful because it's high in omega-3 fatty acids.
The price of our freezer lambs is $2.20/lb live weight for 2014. In 2013, they ranged in weight from about 60 to 80 lbs. This price includes transportation to the slaughterhouse. The slaughterhouse charges a separate fee of $47 for slaughtering, cutting, and wrapping. You have the option of giving the slaughterhouse cutting instructions. The weight of the carcass (meat and bones) from lambs of this size is about 40% of the live weight. Our slaughter dates in 2014 are November 1 and 8. Your frozen cuts of meat will be brought back to Frisky Lamb Farm one week later where you can pick them up.
Call or e-mail us to order (see Contacting Us). A deposit of $50 will be requested to reserve a lamb.
Make sure you have enough freezer space. About 2 cubic feet are needed for a whole lamb in the form of wrapped and frozen cuts of meat.
