Lava Lake Lamb

Location: Sun Valley, ID US
Website: http://www.lavalakelamb.com


Lava Lake Ranch is an artisanal producer of 100 percent grass-fed certified organic lamb. The lamb is sustainably raised on a family-owned ranch in the Pioneer Mountains, near Sun Valley, Idaho. Dedicated to the proposition that what we eat matters, we raise our lambs sustainably, humanely, without antibiotics or growth hormones, and never place them in feed lots. The lambs graze only on the ranch's certified organic range and drink mother's milk. Their diverse diet of lush, fragrant range grasses and herbs makes our lamb tender, delectable, and highly nutritious. Another part of the story that sets our ranch apart from others, is that all profits from the sale of Lava Lake Lamb help fund vital land and habitat conservation efforts over nearly a million acres in south-central Idaho. This is land conservation on a huge scale and just within this year, we've been rewarded with three national awards to honor our efforts: the Cecil D. Andrus Leadership Award for Sustainability and Conservation, the US Forest Service's National Award for Outstanding Achievement in Rangeland Management, and the Bureau of Land Managements Rangeland Stewardship Award. We're working on a number of conservation projects - everything from restoring wetlands to living with wolves through innovative predator avoidance techniques. Our project to track the pronghorn antelope migration just showed up in several places, including on the Discovery Channel blog. You can read more about those efforts on the website and on our scientific research website.
