Locally Grown Lamb, Direct to Consumer

We provide delicious, quality lamb cuts to two farmers markets in Crawfordsville and West Lafayette from May to October. Our pasture raised lamb is also available year round at Four Seasons Local Market in downtown Crawfordsville. Customers may also call or email us to buy lamb products year round and we are willing to arrange a pick up or drop off time. Our customers have found our lamb to be a much more flavorful, quality product than any lamb purchased in the grocery store! To order, contact us by phone or use the contact form today: 765-275-2211.


Our Approach to Raising Quality Lamb

Our farm is based on a rotational grazing system where ewes and lambs convert nutrient dense grasses into lean, nutritious proteins. We raise 75 or more lambs each year during three lambing seasons, winter, spring and fall, in order to keep a supply of lamb cuts available year round. Most of our ewes lamb indoors out of the elements of the highly variable Indiana weather. The benefits of this system are two-fold: our pastures are given a break to reestablish vegetation and the ewes feed on our own nutrient rich hay. In spring, lambs and ewes are released onto pasture where they begin foraging on a variety of grasses and forbs – a perfect diet for tender, delicious lamb.

Recipes

Chimichurri  

This makes an excellent sauce to top off your lamb sliders and can be frozen or keep in the refrigerator for a week.

Makes approximately 1 cup of sauce

  • ½  bunch of fresh parsley, washed, dried

  • ½ bunch of fresh cilantro, washed, dried

  • 6 cloves of garlic, peeled

  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • Juice of 1 lime or lemon

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea)

  • ½  teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½  to 1 teaspoon hot pepper flakes to taste (optional)

  • ½  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ¼ to ½  cup olive oil

Finely chop the parsley, cilantro, onion and garlic in a food processor. Add the vinegar, lime or lemon juice, salt, oregano, pepper flakes, and black pepper and process in brief bursts until combined well. Add the oil in a thin stream.  The chimichurri should be look like dark chopped leaves in a bright lime green liquid.  Sauce can be spooned on or thinned more for applying in a squeeze bottle. Adding salt to taste.


Lamb Marinade

6 Tablespoons of soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
2 Tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon ground mustard
1 Tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves minced

Mix sauce together and marinate lamb in dish or Ziploc bag for at least 15 minutes even better if marinated overnight then cook on the grill.


Lemon Marinade for Lamb Chops

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, zested (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 lemon, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves, or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed of all visible fat

Directions: In a small bowl stir together the first 7 ingredients. Put the lamb chops in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Move the chops around in the bag so the marinade coats them well. Marinate for 1 hour.
Grill or broil the chops for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare.  Be sure to use a meat thermometer to prevent over cooking.
