Lamb Cuts

Frozen lamb cuts processed by Black Earth MeatsIf you would rather purchase less lamb than a half or whole, we usually have a full range of cuts on hand: whole and half legs, shanks, ground lamb, stew chunks, and chops.  There are always organ meats such as kidneys, heart, and liver, and even testicles!

For our prices, we rely on the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, which publishes a monthly survey of retail prices for grass-fed lamb nationwide. We use the average price for grass-fed lamb.

Find the USDA survey here, and look under “Lamb – Direct to Consumer (Retail)” on the left hand side of the page.  The average retail price appears under the “Wtg Avg” column.

Usually the first group of lambs reaches our target weight and goes to the butcher in the middle of October.  We will then have cuts on hand until we sell out in the following year.

We also offer “Baa Brats,” bratwurst made from grass-fed mutton.  Each package has four pre-cooked brats, about 1 pound total.  The brats come in multiple seasonings including merguez, smoked, cajun, and Italian, in addition to traditional (plain) brats.  Also, we offer Landjaeger sausage (sticks) in one pound packages.

Our lamb cuts and sausage are available at the farm, or you can find us at the Monroe Street Farmers’ Market during the summer and the indoor MadWest Farmers’ Market in the winter.
