We are accepting reservations for six grass-fed lambs that will be available this fall. The lambs were born in March or April of this year and will be ready for butchering late fall. These sheep were just recently weaned. They have never been grained. They receive Thorvine Kelp as a nutritional supplement.
Meduseld does not butcher or sell the processed meat. We sell the sheep and will deliver it to Gore’s Custom Butcher in Stephen’s City, VA, which is conveniently located off Interstate 81. Meduseld’s charge is $100.00 for the sheep, and Gores charges $75.00 to process it (pricing as of June 2013). You will be able to pick up your lamb directly from Gores.
The lambs are crosses of the Romneys, Dorset Down, or Jacobs. The weight of each lamb will be approximately 100 pounds. Typically, approximately 50 percent of that is lost during butchering.
If you google prices for grass-fed lamb, you will find that this is a bargain.
The sheep are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your lamb! We require a $25.00 deposit to hold the reservation.
