Lamb - Fall 2023 - 50% Order Deposit
Lamb - Fall 2023 - 50% Order Deposit
For 2023, our lamb is priced at $18/lb for the exact weight of the lamb that you take home. Lamb can be ordered by the Quarter (8lbs), Half (16-20lbs), or Whole (30-36lbs) and include all of the cuts in each portion based on your cutting preferences. If you're not sure how you'd like your lamb cut, please review the descriptions in the drop-down section below. Your order will be ready starting November 2023.
When you place your order, we charge you approximately 50% of your final total. Making a deposit at the time of ordering helps us pay for costs that we incur throughout the growing season, like feed or labour. When you collect your order, we will subtract your deposited amount from your full order total at the time of pickup/delivery, and just your remaining amount will be due at that time.
Your lamb will be available for on-farm pickup or neighbourhood delivery. For neighbourhood delivery, a fee of $10 will be applied to your order and this option is available in Wakefield, Chelsea, Hull, and central Ottawa.
Our flock of Icelandic sheep are certified organic, 100% grassfed, and spend their lives grazing the pastures on our regenerative farm. While they lose their organic status when the leave the farm, they are transported directly to a government-inspected facility by us, where they are handled in compliance with the norms of the organic standard.
How it Works
How it Works
By placing an order, you are confirming the amount you will purchase. Your deposit amount confirms your order and your final payment will be due when you pick up the products. We charge for the exact weight of the products that you take home, minus your deposit amount.
Please note that the different products are available at slightly different times. We will work together with you to make it as easy as possible for you to get your order - either by on-farm pickup when you can enjoy the farm sights and meet the animals; or by neighbourhood delivery. Whether you're getting everything together at once, or a little at a time through the fall season as products become available, we will stay in touch with you the whole time so you know what to expect.
Your deposit is non-refundable. Please be certain of your order before placing it.
Below we've outlined what you can expect when you order a Half Lamb. Your half lamb will include approximately 16-20 lbs of cuts of meat, packaged and ready for you to take home and enjoy. The description below will give you a general understanding of how you can choose to have your half lamb cut, although the exact cuts will vary a little. The number in brackets indicates how many packages of each type of cut. For a Whole Lamb, you can double this, and for a Quarter Lamb, you can expect approximately half.
"The Usual" includes a range of roasting, grilling, and stewing cuts. Cuts in a Half Lamb include: boneless shoulder roast (1), rack of ribs (1), loin chops (2 x 4 chops), bone-in hind leg roast (1), bone-in shanks (2), ground lamb (2-3), lamb stewing meat (1-2), soup bones (2), and organs (2).

"Choose your own (Cooking) Adventure" - You decide! Below I've listed the main parts of the lamb and some options for cutting them. When you choose boneless cuts, you end up with more soup bones at the end. When you choose bone-in cuts, you end up with fewer soup bones at the end. When you choose this option, I will get in touch with you by email to finalize your cutting details.
