With a custom processed whole lamb you get to choose how your meat is cut and packaged. The final weight of processed meat that you receive will vary depending on the size of the animal and the instructions you give us for butchering. Because of these variations, we charge based on hanging weight.
For a whole lamb you will be charged $6.00/lb hanging weight + butcher's processing fees. Standard butchering costs $140. A whole lamb will usually yield 40-50 lbs hanging weight. A whole lamb will usually cost $380-$440 total. Typically you will end up with 25-30 lbs of lamb to put in your freezer.
After we receive your deposit, we will email you a cut sheet that lists the choices you will have for butchering. We are happy to talk you through the cut sheet, especially if this is your first time ordering lamb this way.
We have butcher dates scheduled for early November. Your lamb will be butchered by Sailer's Meats in Elmwood, WI. It will be USDA inspected and vaccuum packed.
We will send your final invoice once we get the hanging weight and processing fees back from the butcher. We will also arrange for pick up or delivery at this time.
You always have the option of picking your lamb up directly from the butcher in Elmwood, WI, or here at the farm. We can do home delivery within about an hour radius from the farm (Minneapolis to Eau Claire) for a small fee.
