The Suffolk sheep breed is a meat-type breed, known for its good muscling and rapid growth. Our lambs are 6 to 10 months old when processed.
Your whole lamb can be processed any way you want. Examples:
2 Rear Legs -- each processed as a leg roast, boneless roast, leg steaks, or something else.
2 Sirloins -- processed as a roast, boneless roast, steaks, etc.
Rib Chops or Rib Roast -- suggest 1 to 1.5 in. thick chops
Loin Chops or a Loin Roast -- 1 to 1.5 in. thick chops
Or, a Crown Rack of Lamb -- for that special dinner party.
2 Front Legs -- roast, boneless roast, or arm and blade chops.
Can have any part cut-up as lamb kabobs for a stew, or ground lamb for juicy lamb burgers.
You get Neck Slices, shanks, also get back all the organ meat, and even the head.
We will salt down the hide, takes 6-8 weeks to cure, then you send the hide to Bucks County Fur Products, Quakerstown, PA.
Example: cost for a whole lamb, 110-120 lbs., with a hanging wt. of 55-60 lbs., at $4.40 lb., based on the hanging weight, plus the flat rate butcher shop cost of $85.00. Slight extra charge for a Crown Rack of Lamb.
55 to 60 lb. hanging wt. x $4.40 lb. = $242.00 to $264.00, plus flat rate butcher shop cost of $85.00. Total: $327.00 to $349.00 for a whole lamb.
A half lamb would be in the range of $163.00 to $175.00.
Why a bit more -- our Suffolk lambs finish out at 120 lbs. or more. Other breeds processed at 80 to 100 lbs -- with 40-50 lb. hanging wts.
