Love lamb? Four years ago Lisa and Glenn Letendre moved to Boulder Meadow Farm. A former horse farm, it is now home to llamas, an alpaca, chickens, and pure-bred Wensleydale sheep, raised for their prized fleece. But along with this line-up, the Letendres raise other types of sheep for meat, and just this year began selling it.

At Boulder Meadow Farm, grass-fed lamb can be purchased on the hoof or packaged and frozen.  If buyers opt not to buy a whole lamb on the hoof, Lisa says: “When the lamb is ready for market weight, they can have me bring it to the butcher. Buyers can also buy cuts out of my freezer.”

Orders for Boulder Meadow’s USDA certified meat are currently picked up at the butcher. “In another month,” Lisa says, “lamb will be sold at the farm. I’ve been raising my lambs here to market weight, now the butcher will do it USDA, to sell right off the farm.” Also, Boulder Meadow chicken can be purchased frozen, whole or in individual pieces, right at the farm.

Boulder Meadow also works with Fitzwilliam’s Steeple Chase Farm (fleece and raising lambs), and Hill Farm, (fleece and offering pigs, chickens and turkeys for meat), as part of a unique support group that helps assure the highest quality products for their customers. “It’s our work. We’re dedicated,” Lisa says.
