Meet the Farmers and Ranchers

"I would love to be a sheep on our farm, because life for them is great. They have great lush pastures. We are personally engaged with each animal. We have bonded with them. We like caring for them. We like raising them. We love the food that comes from them.

American Lamb is good for Americans for many, many reasons. Not only is it generally leaner, but it also has better mineral content. Lamb is better. And when you account for taste, you've gone from better to wonderful. Lamb is something that America don't realize they can eat every day."

Grilling or barbecuing is simply cooking meat on a grate over hot coals or another heat source.

Best for cuts that cook quickly:

Braising Tips


Meat is browned in fat, then tightly covered, and cooked slowly in a small amount of liquid.

Cook on the stovetop, in the oven or in a slow cooker:

  • Shoulder
  • Shank

Roasting Tips


Oven-method that cooks meat uncovered to produce a well-browned exterior and tender interior.

Best for tender cuts:

  • Rack
  • Loin
  • Leg
