Lava Lake Lamb's two-fold mission is to raise the highest quality, best-tasting grass-fed lamb available and to do it in a way that restores and protects the rich native landscape on which their lambs roam and graze.
Lava Lake Lamb is an artisanal producer of all-natural grass-fed lamb. We raise our lamb on a family owned ranch in the southern Pioneer Mountains near Sun Valley Idaho.
Only a handful of producers raise 100-percent grass-fed lamb. Even fewer are able to offer it online. Our lamb is available to consumers nationwide online, year-round.
