These are perfect braised! Season lamb shanks with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes, and red wine, then slowly simmer them in the oven. Grass-fed lamb is a lean, healthy red meat.
This comes frozen in approximately a 1-1.5 pound, clear vacuum-sealed pack.
Our lambs live the good life, roaming free and happy outdoors on pasture. They get moved to fresh grass frequently, and they never eat anything but pasture, hay in winter, or minerals (no feed). They have a low-stress life and are processed under USDA inspection right on the farm.
Marble Creek Farmstead is a sustainable family farm specializing in pasture-raised meats and eggs. We use rotational grazing because it heals the land, creates more nutritious meat, and is better for the animals. They get fresh grass to munch on, the movement breaks the parasite cycle (removing the need for chemical treatments), and letting the grass rest a while makes the plants and soil healthier. Raising so many different species creates a synergy that improves the soil health, which in turn creates healthier animals, which ends up making you and me healthier. Not only are pasture-raised meats better for the environment and have a much healthier nutritional profile than conventionally-raised meats, they are some of the most delicious meats out there!
