Icelandic Lamb

Stark_Hollow_Farm Nov 29, 2011 06:28 PM

I raise Icelandic lamb on my small homestead farm in Vermont. I am curious what people's palates have to say about Icelandic lamb vs other types of lamb products. Does any restaurant carry lamb on the menu that is specifically noted as Icelandic?

    I haven't seen any specific mentioning it but there are a large number of farm to table restaurants in Vermont that I'm sure would be interested in special lamb. :) I've never had it, so I wouldn't know the diff. :)

    How often do you have meat available?

      Hi Morganna - We typically have Icelandic lamb in the fall into early winter (depending on how much we have and how quickly it sells!). We have lamb available now that we are selling direct to customers from our farm and soon at the farmer's market in Burlington.

        How much do you usually charge, and would you sell a whole lamb at a discount, and how much lamb is on a whole lamb?

          Hi Morganna - We do not have any whole lamb right now, but will next fall. We have sold custom cut before, but I won't have a price fixed until next year for next year's product, but in past we have sold for $7.50 - 8.00 per lb hanging weight. Hanging weights usually run around 35 - 40 lbs and will yield 20 - 25 lbs of packaged cuts.

        Hi Dave, we are located in Huntington, Vermont in the US. We do sell to the public, but aren't really set up to sell internationally. Laura
