Where to buy a whole lamb...
Does anyone know a good place to buy a whole lamb? There used to be a place near Santa Rosa......I'd like to find a good source!
Lamb from Marin Sun Farms is excellent. I'd contact their butcher shop in Pt Reyes

You may be thinking of CK Lamb, in Healdsburg, used by many of the Sonoma County chefs. Very good flavor.

Golden Gate Meats was offering milk fed lamb for Easter, including whole lambs for special order.
It is an old Greek custom to reward the "spit-turner" with the head. It is not disgusting...a bit fatty but delicious. It just takes a little getting used to...especially the eyes. I'm kind of joking, because I doubt if you can get a lamb with head on. Most of the carcasses I've seen have the head removed.
