Where to buy "happy" lamb legs?

So, Easter is coming up and I'd love to buy a lamb leg to roast. Is there any place where I can get "happy" (natural, organic, free-range, whatever you'd call this) lamb legs in the outer boroughs or even the City?
I was tempted to try some of the halal markets nearby on Atlantic Ave., but after seeing one too many dropped on the sidewalk on the way from the unrefrigerated van they come in, I think I'm going to steer clear.

Have you been to Marlow & Daughters -- the Marlow & Sons spin-off butcher shop? All their meat is locally sourced and raised by small producers. The head butcher is really friendly and knowledgeable about the provenance of the meat they sell. I was there a week or so ago, and they definitely had lamb. It's just a few doors down from Marlow & Sons on Broadway, between Bedford and Berry.
