A question about lamb.

Various cuts of lamb were a family favorite when I was growing up. It had a special flavor that I loved. Lamb today lacks trhat flavor, sometimes having no real flavor at all. I have bought New Zealand and Australian lamb as well as American lamb, often from Greek purveyors. I am always disappointed. I am ready to quit buying it altogether. Does anyone know of a place that sells really good lamb? I would really appreciate it.

    FWIW, Chicago Magazine listed their pick of meat purveyors not long ago and singled out Wettstein's organic (309) 376-7291 and Halsted Packing (312) 421-5147 for lamb. Halsted sells whole or half lambs.

      I've been buying local naturally raised lamb from Mint Creek Farm at the Green City Market. I don't know what that elusive flavor is that you are looking for, but I'm very happy with their product.
