Why Pick American Lamb

COMPARISON TO IMPORTS
 
Only American Lamb delivers the freshness, flavor and quality that customers expect and deserve.
According to recent studies, customers prefer American Lamb to imported lamb; they ranked it superior in terms of quality, taste and healthfulness. In fact, over one third of Americans indicated they would ask for American Lamb if they could only find imported lamb in their grocery store's meat case.

How does American Lamb get its great mild, buttery flavor? It's how we raise them. Most American Lamb are fed a combination of mixed grains and mixed grasses; this feed contributes to a milder, less gamey flavor.
