Pastured Meat Sales: Goat, Lamb, Mutton, Chicken

Locally-Grown, Chemical-Free!

Interested in locally-raised, pastured goat meat, lamb, or mutton? We’re taking reservations now for meat that will be available between December, 2018 and February, 2019.

In placing your reservation, you have a number of options to consider:

• Buy a half or whole animal

• Delivered to meat locker; or

• Butchered and frozen, for pick-up at the farm; or

• Pick up live animal at the farm (whole animal only)

Additional butchering fees will be charged by the meat locker. We deliver to the following lockers: Bagley Locker and Processing; Kirkpatrick Locker; Mingo Locker; Ridgeport Locker; State Center Locker; and Story City Locker. Our delivery fee is $25.00.

Cuts include leg roasts, stew meat, loin chops, rib roast, shoulder roast, neck roast (for whole animal), shanks, and ground meat.

To reserve your meat, we require that you pay a deposit of half the estimated total charge, based on the estimated weight of the animal. (Full refunds will be provided for orders cancelled prior to 30 days before butchering date.) Payment in full will be due when you pick up your live animal or your processed meat. Actual final weights of live animals and processed meat will vary – your final payment may be more or less than your deposit.

Our meat comes from Katahdin sheep and Nigerian goats. (Note: Both Katahdins and Nigerians are smaller breeds, relative to other sheep and goats.)
