Eden Utah Lamb Meat and Sheep Cheeses for Sale
Lamb is also known as the other red meat! When thinking about your holiday meals and the long winter ahead, think about lamb. Lamb is a prime source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals. Lamb protein is nutritionally complete, with all eight essential amino acids in the proper ratios. A 3-ounce serving of lamb provides 43% of an adult male’s recommended daily allowance of protein. Lamb is high in B vitamins, zinc, and iron. For those watching their carbohydrate intake, lamb has zero carbs.
Lamb is one of the richest sources of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA possesses unique and potent antioxidant activity. The meat from a sheep under a year of age is considered lamb meat. These are not the cute little newborn lambs you see bouncing around the pasture with Mom.
At Snowy Mountain Sheep Farm and Creamery, our lambs are weaned at thirty days and moved into their own pasture environment for the next 7 to 11 months. These lambs are carefully grass fed and watered with no hormones, graining, or antibiotic usage. When they reach a weight of 110 to 120 lbs., they are at an ideal weight for becoming a sweet red meat fit for the finest gourmet meal.
Snowy Mountain’s lambs are hand cut locally by Nathan Bingham at his new butcher shop in Morgan. Nathan’s expertise adds to the quality of the meat due to the delicate handling and correct cutting. Nathan will cut to order or you may request our standard package.
The flavor of the lamb grown here in Ogden Valley is very delicate and pure. Our lamb is requested by the finest Park City chefs.
We encourage all to eat local, eat well, live long, and laugh often. Try our wonderful lamb and experience some of the finest cuisine available from here in the Ogden Valley.
Don’t forget our primary business of artisan cheese making. Enjoy our delectable cheeses available at the farm by appointment. In addition, some of our unique cheeses are also available at the Valley Market.
