Ground lamb is an essential ingredient in much middle eastern and Mediterranean cooking. Lots of flavor and richness.
Enjoy within 5 days or freeze for later use.
Farmers to You orders Tamarack Sheep Farm lamb by the whole animal and it arrives fresh to us every time it is ordered. On weeks when we receive a fresh lamb delivery you will receive cuts that are fresh, not frozen. On weeks when we do not receive a new order your lamb will be sent frozen to stop the aging process. Lamb begins the thawing process while en route to you and can continue the thawing process in your fridge and enjoyed within a week. Tamarack lamb can be refrozen if desired. To thaw meat that has been frozen, place in a sealed bag in a bowl of cool water. Allow at least a day to thaw your lamb prior to cooking. Depending on the size and cut of meat, thawing times may vary. Check the weekly bounty in our Friday Newsletter for fresh lamb updates.
Ben and Grace are committed to their Tunis sheep. They graze exclusively on grass, and are outside on pasture most of their lives. They are healthy and strong animals content to be eating what sheep like most – lush grass all day long! They are also like family – Ben inherited the flock from his great uncle and it is one of the oldest continuously tended Tunis flocks in the country.
We are very lucky to have this lamb from Ben and Grace. They only have three customers including Farmers To You, and the other two are well known restaurants in Cambridge and Vermont. This is easily the best tasting lamb I’ve ever had, but don’t take my work for it – give it a try for your next special occasion, or when dear friends come to visit.
This ground lamb is really excellent quality. So delicious. We make Indian mutter dishes with it.
Very tasty, but I concur with another reviewer, a LOT of fat in these, so you'll lose quite a bit of it in the cooking process. I know that I have had ground lamb with other sources that didn't have this degree of fat.
Sorry, it was tasty but I'd estimate 50% fat. Too costly.
This ground lamb is SO flavorful! I used it to make shepherd's pie and it was wonderful! Use the other Farmers to You ingredients, such as potatoes, carrots, garlic and frozen corn to make this satisfying dish!
You can also make delicious lamb burgers!
