Certified Organic, 100% Grass-fed Lamb
Coulter Farms harvests about 75 Lambs per year. The ewes are Katahdin Hair Sheep. This breed is known for its shedding coat (like a dog...no fleece shearing, YAY!) These days, you must pay someone to shear and then find someone to take the fleece for free. The hair sheep are much more comfortable in the summer than wool sheep. Also, they put their efforts into producing more meat...good for a sheep farmer who gets paid by the pound of meat. These animals are wonderfully pleasant to work with. They lamb effortlessly (well, almost) on pasture in April and produce an average of 1.5 to 2, 90 lb lambs by November, per ewe. After butchering, we usually have 30 pounds of cut and wrapped meat per lamb, which we keep in our walkin freezer to sell as cuts at Farmers Markets, or as whole lambs from the farm. You can order in our online store, or by phone or email for whole lambs.
