A poll for all the Local Harvest blog readers! We're considering expanding our all natural lamb sales to local stores (starting with farm markets) and are trying to decide between marketing lamb sausage or ground lamb as our first retail product. Our hope is not to supplant our all natural lamb CSA program but to offer a product that will encourage local consumers to try our lamb and increase interest in our whole and half lamb shares market.
So my question to you'all as consumers, locavores, local harvest officianadoes, etc is:
If you saw a display of Local All Natural Lamb from a family farm at a local market, would you be more likely to buy Ground Lamb or Lamb Sausage ?
I'd really appreciate any replies whether as comments or messages or e-mails, as I'd really like to make this work but polling the consumer is the first step.
