Why Buy Direct from a Farmer?

 

    Whether you’re looking for the highest quality grass fed lamb chops for your daily dinner table or a decadent rack of lamb for a special holiday celebration, you’ll savor every delicious bite of our grass fed meats.  Here at Four Paws Family Farm, we take pride in raising our lambs with the utmost care and attention. Our animals are raised on a pasture which is free from any pesticides, GMOs, hormones or steroids, which allows them to grow as nature intended. We focus on providing our lambs with a diet consisting of orchard grass, timothy, and clover, ensuring that their meat is of the highest quality. Because of this, the meat tends to be leaner and not as fatty as typical store-bought, grain-finished meat, and with a healthy ratio of omega 3:6:9 essential fatty acids.  Animals that are raised on grass have a high concentration of conjugated linoleic acid, a naturally occurring chemical that researchers are recognizing as a good antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-heart-disease agent. People with allergies tend to tolerate lamb meat. We believe in ethical and sustainable farming practices, and invite you to taste the difference for yourself.

  • Non-GMO

  • Pasture raised

  • Grass-fed & grass-finished

  • No hormones or steroids

  • Directly support small, local farms with your dollars, rather than middle-men and shipping companies.

  • Know the farmers and the conditions in which the animals live.

  • Know what the animals are eating, and that they have room to roam and graze.

  • Animals are not stressed by long transports to the processor and auction houses.

  • When buying a whole or half an animal, you know that you're buying one animal, rather than cuts or ground meat coming from several different animals.

  • In our opinion... it just plain tastes better!

* Antibiotics are only used in extreme circumstances to save an animals life, and only as much as necessary.

   No antibiotics are used within 90 days of a butcher date.

   Most animals which need antibiotics are removed from our meat program.

How it Works

First thing you should know is WE SELL OUT!

We typically sell our lamb by the whole or half, but occasionally cuts are available in our online shop.

Shipping is NOT available, but we will meet you in Lewisburg if you can't make it out to the farm.

 

      If you are wanting lamb you need to reserve it early, because we sell out. Currently, we only have lamb available in the late fall/early winter, but we will be expanding to offer lamb in the spring. 

 

      We take your lamb to the butcher to be processed when it is done "growing out" (getting to the proper age and size: about 6 to 8 months and 80 to 100 pounds). A cut sheet will be provided where you can indicate your preferred cuts to the processor. About 10 to 14 days later, you pick up your vacuum sealed and frozen lamb meat from the processor. We keep you informed about your lamb throughout the process. A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your lamb. Choose whole or half below to lock in your reservation. You will be sent an invoice 2 to 4 weeks before your lamb leaves for processing. Invoice must be paid in full before lamb leaves for processing.
