Approximately 1 pound Grove Ladder Farm Ground Lamb.
If you've been following us on Facebook and Instagram, you already know how excited we are about our flock of critically endangered Florida Cracker sheep! Sheep reach sexual maturity between 4-6 months of age. The meat that we refer to as "lamb" is harvested when the sheep is one year old and 100% full grown. Therefore, when you purchase pasture-raised lamb meat from our farm, you are purchasing an adult ram who is 1 year of age. The ewe lambs born on the farm are kept to restore the flock, while a single proven ram (an aggressive gent usually well over 2 years old) is kept for the breeding and guarding of those ewes.
