Barbeque, roast, or marinate them fully - the flavor and richness is wonderful.

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.
Tamarack's flock dates back to the 1920s and has been tended by the Manchin family since then. These animals are raised on grass and as naturally as possible. We have been looking for a quality lamb producer for some time and we are pleased to partner with Ben and his heirloom flock. He sells his lamb only to us and two restaurants (one in Boston and one in Burlington), so it is a very special treat indeed.
While not quite up to the standard of Icelandic lamb (the best I've ever had), this is the best lamb I've eaten in the USA and on a bit better than what I had in New Zealand.
I got this as a special treat for my son who first tasted lamb on that trip to Iceland. He loved their special lamb soup and kept ordering it in every possible restaurant (age 5.)
Grilling kebabs is a pretty fun party during COVID-19 isolation. The meat is not very fatty FOR LAMB, and I could it eat straight off the stick. (That is not something I would do with all lamb meat.) I'm not a lamb lover, but found this meat very good. I hope this helps someone else choose whether to order. :)
