Easter Lamb

Anyone know if there is a butcher in Central NJ that has baby lamb? Last minute I know, but its what I'm dealing with.

  1. I would call Ramon, a wholesaler. If he doesn't have a baby lamb available, he may be able to guide you to a butcher that could help.

    1. So you want a whole lamb? because baby lamb is kind of redundant.

        thanks for the help, sorry for the delay in getting back.

        Yes, it is redundant. "baby" lambs refer to the younger milk fed lamb. The lambs we used to buy were probably dressed out at around 20 lbs for the whole lamb. For smaller family gatherings we would buy half the lamb. Spring lambs would be a bit larger...about 30- 40 lbs.

        Yeesh, writing about it I can almost understand vegetarians :)
