Our lamb is raised by Hamilton Brothers Ranch on native California grasslands in the Montezuma Hills. 4th Generation Family Farmers raise lamb that graze among abundant wildlife protected by livestock guardian dogs. Going back to the 1800s the Hamilton Brothers have worked with the Nature Conservancy to protect the Jepson Prairie.
For over 100 years, lambs have been individually selected and bred to produce a sheep that thrives in our Mediterranean California climate. Hamilton Brothers Ranch uses rotational grazing to enhance and benefit the environment, which results in producing the most wholesome, humanely raised lamb for you to enjoy.
