About Us
Located in Klamath Falls Oregon, we keep around 60 Romeldale ewes, a breed of sheep which are considered critically endangered by The American Livestock Conservancy. Our lambs are born each spring and raised here in Klamath Falls. All animals graze and are supplemented with local hay or alfalfa pellets. They do not receive antibiotics or growth hormones.

Practices
When you purchase a lamb share you are buying the whole or half animal live, meaning they have yet to be butchered. We have partnered with our wonderful local butcher, Diamond S Meat Company, to processes your meat. This means the animal never has to travel long distances to a USDA facility. Instead Diamond S comes directly to our farm. In addition to the fee for the animal, customers will pay Diamond S directly for the processing and cut and wrap fees ($75 for a half lamb/$150 for whole lamb). Customers can also customize their cut and wrap instructions. Please check out their website at https://diamondsmeatco.com/ or call them with questions.
Our lambs will be butchered February 15th, weighing at least 100 pounds, and our yields are usually around 47% of their live body weight. Pick up from Diamond S Meats is around March 1st.
