Sheep into Meat

On their last day in the pasture.

In the freezer, labeled by name in addition to date and cut, so we can see how the taste varies.

Adam the butcher came and helped us dispatch the lambs with care and respect. It was an educational and affecting event, and I’m really glad we did it this way instead of hauling them to a slaughter house. These guys died where they lived, and they’ll continue the circle cycle of life as they feed people in the same space. Keeping it local. Knowing your food. Life nourishes life.

Thank you Argyle. Thank you Sheepie. Thank you Pancake. Thank you Yummy. You did well.

The season is ending all over the place.
