Frequently Asked Questions

Are your lambs organic?

In general, organic production limits the use of chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and other inputs. However, it does not strictly define production practice related to space per animal or outdoor access requirements that can have significant welfare implications for animals and the environment (for example: confinement areas are permitted to fatten organic lamb). Our lambs are ethically raised on pasture by stewards who care intimately for the animals and the earth.

How do you protect your flock from predators?

Coyotes are the main threat to pastured flocks. Our best defenses against coyotes include working with trained livestock guardian dogs that live and socialize with the sheep and rotating the lambs every 24 grazing hours. This grazing rotation keeps coyotes from learning weak spots in the fence. Rotational grazing also helps protect our sheep from internal parasites: By allowing long rest periods between grazing, the parasite’s life cycle is interrupted.

How many meals come in each Lamb Box?

Each lamb box includes 4 to 6 pounds of lamb (an average of 3 different cuts) to make 3 to 5 different lamb dinners per month. You can expect to enjoy pasture-raised lamb about once a week with a monthly box subscription.

Is shipping free?

Shipping is always free and included when you order through our Lamb Box monthly subscription. If you order a single Lamb Box or one of our special Lamb Box offers, shipping will be added to the price of the Lamb Box.

How is your lamb shipped?

Hand-packed with care! We ship using FedEx or UPS Ground/Home Delivery. We ship orders Monday through Wednesday for a delivery window to your door from Wednesday through Saturday. You will receive a confirmation email with your tracking number and estimated delivery date when your Lamb Box ships from us here in Lawrence, Kansas.

Each order will be shipped in an earth-friendly foam cooler with dry ice (see how to responsibly dispose of the foam insulators). All product(s) will arrive frozen, partially thawed, or chilled. FedEx and UPS will leave your lamb at your door. To maintain quality, make sure you will be home soon after your lamb is scheduled to arrive.

Please note:

  • All shipments must have a physical address. We will not ship to PO boxes.
  • We are not responsible for incorrect or incomplete shipping addresses. Double-check that your address was entered correctly.
  • Your lamb will arrive frozen or partially thawed on dry ice. If your lamb is partially thawed, you can refreeze it without losing quality. Do not refreeze ground lamb.
  • The dry ice will be at the bottom of the package in bags marked Dry Ice. Please be careful removing the lamb from the box. Wear gloves while handling the dry ice.

Why do you only ship frozen lamb?

The majority of the lambs are born when the prairie is lush with a nutritious, diverse diet that grows healthy animals. This allows our lambs to spend their entire lives on pasture and are never finished in feedlots. Because we strive to give our lambs the highest quality of life, we have to harvest them when they reach the peak of maturity. This time frame changes a bit from year to year depending on the weather. Our commitment to raising lambs on pasture and processing at maturity means that we can’t supply fresh lamb like strictly grain-fed operations.

Can I choose what I get each month?

Each month, we will send you a reminder email that your Lamb Box is being prepared before shipping your box. We carefully select the best seasonal cuts for our Lamb Box monthly subscription to encompass eating a zero-waste philosophy. Our selected cuts cannot be changed. Please stay tuned — we plan to add the option to include more of your favorite cuts in your monthly box. Watch for a notification when this comes available!


How old are your lambs when they are processed?

We process our lambs between 7 to 12 months, when they weigh over 100 pounds.

Where do you ship?

We ship to all states in the continental United States. We do not ship to Alaska, Hawaii, or internationally at this time.

What does zero-waste philosophy mean?

We believe the only ethical and sustainable way to use products from animals is to ensure that the whole animal is used, so no part of the animal is wasted or ends up in a landfill. We believe every part of the animal has value. Our Lamb Box monthly subscription embodies a whole-animal approach to eating. We have designed our program to allow our customers to experience eating nose-to-tail. Our Lamb Box includes a variety of specialty and unique cuts and we regularly include tutorials and chef-created recipes. Plus, we have created a filterable recipe database on our website and created other community support systems to help you embrace a nose-to-tail eating experience.

How do I thaw frozen lamb?

The best way to thaw frozen lamb is in your refrigerator overnight. You can also submerge your packaged lamb in cold water, changing the water every 30 minutes until your lamb is thawed.

Does someone need to be home to get the delivery?

You do not need to be home to receive your delivery. You will receive a confirmation email with your tracking number and estimated delivery date when your Lamb Box ships. FedEx or UPS will leave your box at your door. Normally, your tracking will indicate at which door to find your box. To maintain quality, make sure you will be home soon after your lamb is scheduled to arrive, and be sure to put your lamb in the freezer or refrigerator as soon as possible.

How long should I keep your lamb?

If your lamb remains frozen, you can keep it in your freezer for 6 months after purchase. If you have thawed the lamb, consume it within 5 to 7 days.


How will my order arrive? How should I handle it?

Each order will be shipped in an earth-friendly foam cooler with dry ice (see how to responsibly dispose of the foam insulators.)

All product(s) will arrive frozen, partially thawed, or chilled. If your lamb cuts are partially thawed, you can refreeze them without losing quality. Do not refreeze partially thawed ground lamb. The dry ice will be at the bottom of the package in bags marked Dry Ice. Please be careful removing the lamb from the box. Wear gloves while handling the dry ice.
