Does anyone know of a farm in the GTA that will sell a whole lamb to the public. I just want one.

Thanks

  1. If you cant find a farm give Kostas Meat Market a call. They are the go to place for lambs for Greek Easter so they should be able to either point you in the right direction or failing that, sell you a whole lamb.

      La Boucherie in the SLM sell a lot of Easter lambs as well, but pre-ordering would likely be required. Highland farms seems to have whole lambs regularly.

        Sanagan's in the Kensington market buys whole lambs for their own shop so I imagine they could order one for you as well. The lamb I've had from them has been excellent.

        By the way, they are moving shortly from their very cramped current location to the 4000 square feet space where European Meats used to be.

        If the OP is taking home the whole lamb as is, then Kostas is a fine choice. If you want them to custom cut, their give-a-damn factor is sadly lacking.

        Try Best Baa at the St Lawrence Farmers' Market. I've had terrific lamb from them.

        Another great option for lamb is St Jamestown Steak & Chops. I don't know if they'll sell a whole one to you; just that the man and his impeccably sourced offerings get better and better every year.

        Every place will require a special order. You may as well factor that in no matter where you decide to go.

      3. Try Metheral Meats ... 705-466-3135, 9093 RR 1, Glen Huron. It is about a 1 hour drive.

        I went on a farm tour there a couple of years ago with a slow food group. They raise and kill their own meat including lamb.

        1. Mr. Greek on Danforth is on 801 Danforth Ave (east of pape, west of Jones). I'm fairly sure you can walk in there and pick one up. I don't think it's affiliated with the bad fast food greek place.

          edit...just called, they have them "regularly" (as in tomorrow, saturday). something like 4.99 or 5.99 a lb.
