from the high plains of Colorado and Wyoming
Our lamb is strictly raised the way that domestic sheep have been for thousands of years, which is nomadically herded free on the land. The grasses and plants of the high plains of the Rocky Mountain West where our sheep are raised have the reputation for creating some of the best lamb in the world. Our lamb comes directly from the 'fat' of the land - no grain or confinement feeding yards are involved in any way. The Dorper and Katahdin sheep breeds are a relatively new breed developed in the 1950's from ancient breeds of Persia and Africa. They thrive in arid climates and have an exceptional meat quality produced from consumption of native arid loving plants. These breeds are known in the United States as 'hair sheep' - meaning they shed the majority of their wool. Hair sheep have been bred for a very tender and light taste that is more similar to high end savory tasting beef. The finishing stages of our lamb involve grazing the animals on lush grasses and plants of mountain lowlands. These grasses are naturally rich in flavor for the animals and are irrigated by clear mountain springs and creeks.
