Sunrise Farms is pleased to offer non-GMO lamb. This mildly-flavored, Katahdin hair sheep are pastured and naturally raised without added hormones, preservatives or genetically altered feed. This high-quality sheep is known for its rich flavor without the strong mutton taste commonly associated with wool sheep. Enjoy high-quality, healthy meat all year long when you purchase it from Sunrise Farms. The average dressed weight is approximately 55 lbs. The amount of table-ready meat is approximately 60 – 75% of the dressed weight, depending on the amount of boneless cuts.

USDA Certified Vs. Custom Processing

Sunrise Farms partners with local meat processors to provide our whole lamb customers with USDA Certified and Custom (Non-USDA Certified) processing options. What’s the difference? USDA processing facilities must come under federal regulations for animal slaughter. This means a federal or state inspector must be on site whenever animals are being slaughtered. While custom processors must undergo routine state inspections, they may avoid the additional cost of continual inspection. If you are more comfortable with a USDA inspected facility or if you purchase our whole animals for resale, you should buy our USDA processed animals. You get to choose the cuts to your specifications. If you are buying for personal use, we can sell you the animal, and you work directly with the processor to determine cuts and schedule pickup from their facility. We recommend local custom processors we know and trust and who have great reputations in our community. Custom processing generally saves you 10-15% in total cost. What does that mean for you? Electing to use our Non-USDA Certified processor gives you a more economical way to purchase locally-processed whole lamb!
