American Grassfed Association Certified Grassfed Lamb

"More than four hundred years ago, the first Churro sheep were brought into the Southwest by Don Juan Onate. The fact that these sheep still exist today is a testimony to their endurance and endearment. No other sheep population in the history of the world has survived such selective pressure with such dignity and spirit. Even though the Navajo-Churro breed still exists, it is considered a Rare Breed. The gene pool is presently large enough to maintain the breed type with the diversity of available unrelated lines. Fortunately for breeders, a well established network of registered stock is available, scattered throughout the US and Canada.These sheep with their long staple of protective top coat and soft undercoat are well suited to extremes of climate. Some rams have four fully developed horns, a trait shared by few other breeds of the world. The Navajo-Churro is highly resistant to disease, and although it responds to individual attention, it needs no pampering to survive and prosper. The ewes lamb easily and are fiercely protective. Twins and triplets are not uncommon. The flavor of the meat is incomparably superior, with a surprisingly low fat content." - Navajo Churro Sheep Association

WHOLE

Navajo-Churro is regarded by many chefs as the most desirable breed when it comes to lamb or mutton. It is also the only gourmet lamb meat recognized by Slow Food USA. The unusually low lanolin levels translate to an excellent "sweet" taste, compared to commercial breeds. The meat is tender and captures the flavor of the rangeland or pasture it is raised on. Because Churro sheep put most of their fat around their organs, the meat is more lean than that of other commercial breeds. We raise our sheep on grass and native grass hay and allow them to range through the pastures on our farm. Because they mature slowly, Churros are still classified as lamb at 9-14 months of age, and that is when we deliver them live to an excellent local, USDA-inspected butcher. We offer the meat frozen. Hanging weight for whole full sized lamb carcasses typically range from 20 to 30 lbs. Our lambs are smaller than commercial lamb and thus all cuts will be proportionally smaller.

Whole lambs are sold by the hanging weight at $7.10/lb plus $100 butcher fee. 

Total cost to purchase a whole lamb ranges from $240-$350 depending on size.

Half lambs are sold by the hanging weight at $8.35/lb plus $50 butcher fee

The total to purchase a half lamb ranges from $130-$220 depending on size.
