Where to buy Icelandic Lamb in the USA ?
I'm posting this on the international board since people here are no dount familiar with getting hard-to-find imported food items in the USA.
The best lamb that I have ever tasted - and this is no exageration - was on a recent trip to Iceland.
Does anyone know where I can buy Icelandic lamb in the United States ?
I'll second your choice because I also was blown away by the lamb in Iceland, as well as the cost of a lamb dinner at a very modest little roadside restaurant in the middle of no where. Just a plate of lamb, gravy, potatoes and a vegetable for two was over $80 a few years ago. (!)
Wonder what it costs now. And fresh Icelandic fish came in a pretty close second for fresh and delicious.
You are right! If you say you don't like lamb - you haven't tried grassfed Icelandic!
It is seasonal though...lambs are born in March and April, raised on pasture and harvested in late summer/early fall.
We sell Icelandic Lamb in North Idaho.
You might also try Local Harvest for listings near you, or ISBONA - Icelandic Sheep Breeders of North America for local breeders. Bon Apetit!
