At Stemple Creek Ranch, we raise 100% grass-fed and grass-finished Hampshire and Dorset lamb. Since the very beginning in 2009, we've offered the option to purchase a whole lamb from us and then have it custom cut and wrapped at Bud's. With a whole lamb, this allows you the flexible to chose how each part of the animal is broken down and then wrapped (shrink wrap, butcher paper or cyrovac bags). It also gives you the option of going in on a whole lamb with family and/or friends to get high quality lamb at a much more affordable price per pound.
A whole lamb will amount to approximately 40-45 pounds of meat, consisting of the following cuts: rack of lamb, loin chops, shoulder roast, shoulder blade chops, sirloin roast, leg roast, leg steaks, riblets, shanks, cubed stew meat, ground lamb, soup bones and offal (based on availability).
For more details on ordering a whole lamb and the full process please see the "Ordering Information" section below.
All orders placed by Monday, at 12pm, each week will be shipped out the following day (Tuesday), via overnight. We use General Logistics Systems (formerly known as Golden State Overnight) and FedEx to ship out orders. Once we have shipped your order, you will receive an email with your tracking number. All meat is shipped frozen and packaged with dry ice to maintain proper temperature control during shipping. If you are hoping for your order to arrive on a specific Wednesday, please respond to this email and let us know!
We harvest our 100% grass-fed and grass-finished lambs year around. It's generally a 3-4 week turnaround from when you place your order for a whole lamb to when you go to pickup everything at Bud's Custom Meats.
When you place your order, you can either pay in full, or pay a $100 deposit until your lamb has been harvested. We will follow up and request the balance payment be made before sending the lamb over to Bud's.
Bud's will communicate with you directly about when you want to pick up your meat, and when they will be able to have the meat ready for you. We will always do our best to meet your preferred timeline, but please keep in mind that since our lambs only eat grass we are at the mercy of mother nature.
We will let you know when we are ready to harvest your animal.
Once it is harvested, lamb takes about 2 weeks before the meat is ready to be picked up at Bud's.
All of our lambs will be processed at Bud’s. If you order a whole animal and wish to make special arrangements to use another butcher shop, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Bud’s will contact you directly about the cut and wrap of your meat.
You will pick up your cut and wrapped meat at Bud’s and pay them directly for the cut and wrap service. If you can’t come pick up your meat, we have another option where we can ship a whole lamb to your doorstep.
A cut and wrapped whole lamb will be about 40-45 pounds. The cut and wrap charges that you pay directly to Bud's will cost around $90. Generally, once you pay for the meat and the cut and wrap, you'll be paying between $9.75 and $11.00 per pound.
Please ask Bud's if you would like the bones and offal to be included in your order.
