Lamb and lambskins for sale!

Lamb for sale! We are offering 100% grass fed lamb, sold as whole lamb butchered to your specifications. Cost varies with size of lamb, but will be around $275-300 ($95 for slaughter & butcher plus $5/lb hanging weight, most hanging at 30-45 lbs). Animals will be slaughtered on-farm for most humane handling. Due state regulations, we must process orders prior to slaughter (which is in a few weeks), so place your order soon!

SPECIAL DEAL for 2108...add a tanned lambskin to your whole lamb order for $115 ($35 off the regular lambskin price of $150). Soft and cozy, tanned with plant extracts by Vermont Natural Sheepskins. No harsh chemicals, perfect for chemically sensitive folks, or anyone who doesn't want toxic stuff in their home. Great for your favorite chair by the woodstove, or for the new baby in your family.

Please contact us if you have questions, or would like to stop by to visit our flock! Visit us on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SocksFamilyFarm/

Socks Family Farm is now on facebook, www.facebook/SocksFamilyFarm. Follow us for daily photography, stories, events, ideas, and more. We hope you'll enjoy this insight into life on our farm. Some of what we post will be farm highlights, of course...beautiful views, healthy animals, and great produce. But let's be honest, farming is hard work, and failures happen often. So you'll also see the flip side from time to time: predator problems, crop diseases, forgetting to water the seedlings, turning over compost piles by hand for 10 hours, and so on. Hope you'll join us on the journey that is the growing season of 2018!

Lamb Day Saturday April 7

Socks Family Farm invites you to Lamb Day this Saturday April 7, 1-3 pm. Our sheep pen will be open to visitors. This year's batch of 12 are runners more than cuddlers, but they're fun to watch! And we always have a couple big sheep happy to be petted. I'll be on hand to answer questions about sheep, poultry, pasture practices, and homestead-scale fruit and veggie production. We'll also have reservation sheets for this season's products, including chicken, lamb, and sheepskins. See you on the farm!
