Heritage lamb has tremendous marbling resulting in a more tender, exquisite and juicy meat
Our lamb is considered threatened, the kind you have to eat to save
This roast is the perfect hearty addition to winter and spring meals. Shoulder meat is a perfect filling for tacos, sandwiches or as a stand alone centerpiece. We recommend covering the roast thoroughly in salt, pepper, olive oil, and rosemary sprigs. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then turn it down to 325 to roast the lamb, for several hours, until the internal temperature reaches 145 for a perfect medium rare (or a little bit less, as the roast will continue to cook after leaving the oven).
The secret to great lamb is to start off with great ingredients, and nothing beats our storied heritage breeds — Tunis, Dorset Horn and Navajo-Churro. Each breed comes from a different culinary tradition tracing back thousands of years and boasts a distinctive, nuanced flavor.
The Dorset is light, with a clean, floral finish.It is grass-fed, and boasts incredible flavor — not to mention an incredible history: The Dorset Horn is a breed of sheep that spread over Dorset, Somerset, Devon, and most of Wales. In 1750 this is the breed the English with a fine palate would eat for Christmas!
The Navajo-Churro lamb is remarkably tender – even cuts like the shoulder and legs that sometimes call for braising can be roasted and served medium rare like the loin chops or the rib rack. Truly, these animals are a reflection of the ground upon which they were raised, one-hundred percent free range, raised in Navajo Country and in the mountains of New Mexico. There is very little hay feeding in the winter, as they are grazed at lower elevations, producing an herbaceous and savory flavor.
