I am just throwing this out there. I raised a few lambs this year and I am looking to sell one to cover some of my costs. I have a small farm in Rockford but I drive to Northbrook for work so the meat can be picked up there. I am not looking to sell individual cuts. The cost is roughly 240.00 and would yield about 40 lbs. of meat. Approximately 5-6 dollars /lb. I will take them to the butcher, (Sorg’s in Wisconsin) and you call the butcher to discuss the cuts. I’ll pick it up and bring to Northbrook. One thing to consider is they are grass fed. For the health conscious this is a plus. Given the enthusiasm for food you all likely know this but the fat content is different. Some feel the flavor is different and it can be less forgiving to over cooking. Again, I’m no foodie, I’m in it for the health aspect. I take them in Oct 30. Likely ready a week or so after that.
We use no chemicals on our pasture and they’ve never been sick so they’ve never had any medicine of any kind. For organically raised, delivered I feel like the price is pretty darn good. Again, if health is a driving factor you can’t go wrong. I’ll bluntly say store bought grain feed meat tastes better.
