Before it makes it to your plate, American Lamb is raised by farmers and ranchers with a shared connection to caring for to the land, the animals, and the local communities they serve across America. When you choose American Lamb, you support the nation’s shepherds and their families and help to sustain working farmland and farm communities. These family farmers and ranchers throughout the U.S. are passionate about providing you with high quality, flavorful lamb in a way that sustains our industry, supports our communities, and preserves our land and resources for future generations.
Our farmers and ranchers are committed to practices that protect the environment, improve land management, and foster animal well-being. Sheep improve pastures and rangeland by cycling vital nutrients back through the soil, minimizing erosion, and encouraging native plant growth. Sheep graze on a variety of nutrient-dense grasses, legumes, and forage will produce succulent, tender meat.
From large scale range operations in the west to smaller farm flocks in the east, raising sheep improves the quality of our land, supports rural communities, and provides food and fiber for the nation.
