We are expecting lambs starting in January. Any meat lambs will be butchered in October of 2022 unless you have another butcher you can get a date with or butcher it yourself. Deposits can be taken on whole or half lamb for October. If you would like to buy a lamb to finish on your property or take to your butcher, a deposit will also hold that lamb till weaning.
The price will be $8.50/lb hanging weight which includes raising the lamb, transportation, all butcher fees, and delivery to your home or ferry in Central, Western, or Southern Maine. These lambs will be raised on pasture and remain with their mom till August. Expect around 50lb hanging weight.
Live lambs will be sold at the commodity rate at the time of deposit. On Dec 10, 2021, that is $3.10/lb. They can be weaned at 14 weeks of age.
If you require space for Halal slaughter, this can be arranged here on the farm. Lambs for Islamic holidays will have cost per pound live weight determined at time of slaughter based on the current commodity cost/lb.
