Amazing things happen when good shepherds tend to their flocks.  We won’t take short-cuts. This is our livelihood. This is our greatest pride.

A Feast for the Senses…and Conscience

RAISED WITH CARE

  • Raised by real U.S. family ranchers who pass along their passion for sheep caretaking generation after generation.
  • Healthy breeds of sheep roam mountainsides and valleys.
  • Our sheep breathe fresh, clean air, drink spring water and exercise in nature.
  • They graze on a natural, indigenous diet of wild grasses, herbs and flowers, topped off with wholesome, vitamin­-packed grains.

THE TASTE OF PURE FRESHNESS

  • Consistently smooth and juicy.
  • Flavorful enough to complement bold herbs and spices, but not too strong.
  • Velvety tenderness, with an enticing aroma.

A LEAN, CLEAN PROTEIN

  • REAL food, not overly processed or mass­ produced.
  • A nutrient powerhouse with every cut except ground classified as “Lean” or “Very Lean” by the USDA.
  • Forty percent of the fat in lean cuts of lamb is monounsaturated, the same kind of fat found in olive oil.
  • The leg, shoulder/arm chop, shank and sirloin chop meet the American Heart Association’s Heart Check criteria for healthful eating.
  • A 3­ ounce cooked serving, on average, provides:
    • Almost half of the daily recommended amount of protein.
    • Nearly FIVE TIMES the amount of essential omega 3 fatty acids as the same portion of beef.

PRESERVING PRECIOUS NATURAL RESOURCES

  • Natural habitats preserve U.S. land and biodiversity.
  • Sheep grazing helps prevent fires, control invasive weeds, promote tree growth, decrease soil erosion, enhance wildlife habitats and maintain vineyards.

HIGHEST SAFETY PROTOCOLS

  • Added layers of annual audits from reputable third-parties, such as Food Safety Net, conducting Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Animal Handling and Welfare audits, provide extra quality assurance.
  • Mountain States is the only U.S. lamb and veal company to achieve the highest food safety and quality certification level—SQF Level 3.
