Lamb: A Dining Delicacy

Lamb: A Dining Delicacy

Lamb is and always has been a dining delicacy for many cultures and has recently been making its way into mainstream American restaurants with great flare! We are now seeing lamb burgers, rack of lamb appetizers, pickled lamb tongues, lamb sausage and more! Not to mention, the rising awareness of the importance and health benefits of grass-fed meat.

Why? What's all the hype?

Food has become a hobby. The most unique, authentic, and well displayed foods tend to give "foodies" and those who love to navigate the cuisine of the area great conversation and something to brag about! Grass-fed lamb is becoming quite popular, and not only for dining out.

Thanks to the internet, Pinterest, and food bloggers everywhere, we have access to some of the most imaginative recipes from kitchens in homes all over the world. With a small search, anyone can find a new and exciting lamb recipe to experiment with.

I recently spoke with one of our most valued customers about her family's upbringing regarding lamb and she emphasized how valued and special it was when they were able to consume lamb at the dinner table. While others gathered around the typical turkey or ham, her family brought in lamb. "It was a delicacy! We were privileged to be able to have it."

Can you imagine that possibility for your family? What about hosting dinner parties or even barbecues? Is it time to do something different? Offering the highest quality grass-fed lamb is something we are very proud of here at BF Farms and we love that we can help bring it to your dinner table!

Grass-Fed Lamb Chops

Grass-Fed Lamb Chops with Beer Gravy

This recipe for grass-fed lamb chops with beer gravy comes from one of our very dear lamb customers, Keyton Williams. Thank you, Keyton, for passing on this mouth watering recipe! We love to hear how our grass-fed customers are cooking their meat and what their favorite recipes are. If you have a recipe to share, please let us know!


  • 2 Grass-Fed Lamb Chops
  • Soy Sauce
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Sage
  • 1 TBS Butter
  • 1 Cup Dark Beer
  • 1/4 Cup Beef Broth
  • 1/2 TS Flour


Take two lamb chops and sprinkle with a very light amount of soy sauce to enhances meat flavor. Add pepper and braise them in a pan for the juices - About 5 minutes each side on medium heat.

Put the chops in the oven and let them bake for 20 minutes on 350 degrees. "I also love to put the chops in a pressure cooker and cook them that way, the meat LITERALLY falls off the bone and is SO tender delicious."

While the chops are in the oven, put 1 TBSP of butter in a small sauce pan and let it slightly brown for flavor. Add 1 cup of your favorite dark beer. "Any dark beer works, I personally love a good dark that has coffee notes in it, it really brings out the lamb flavor." Place it in the small sauce pan along with the drippings and 1/4 cup of beef broth to cut the beer and add flavor. Warm to medium heat.

Add about a 1/2 teaspoon of flour to thicken.

Add a pinch of sage, salt, and pepper to taste. Let it simmer until the chops are done, out of the oven, and plated. 

Pour the gravy over the chops and BAM, Lamb Chops doused in delicious Beer Gravy!

Winter on the Farm

A Grass-Fed Winter on BF Farms

We have received many questions lately about how we keep the animals fed and cared for during the winter on the farm. These are great questions. With all of the ice and sleet everywhere how do the animals get the "green" they need to maintain their "grass-fed" status?

In order to answer those questions we followed Kamie, our Ranch Manager, during one of her morning rounds. She told us that they plant rye and barley with turnips and radishes which are green in the winter and the sheep and cattle eat right through the ice to get to the nutrition they need. The ice doesn't phase them a bit. In fact, it provides some extra hydration while they eat. They also receive salt and mineral, along with water that has to be broken up every now and then from icing over.

Our cattle handle the cold very well. Nature has a way of protecting animals from cold. Cattle will naturally grow thicker and longer hair for winter. In fact, cattle are a good indicator when a cold winter is coming as their hair will become even heavier. Then in spring they shed that winter coat of hair. Our sheep on the other hand have access to shelter under one of our large barns. Sheep have the tendency to suffocate if covered in ice, and therefore need the option of covered shelter during these cold months.

Have no fear! At BF Farms we plan ahead so our animals get exactly what they need when they need it. It takes a lot of work behind the scenes to care for the animals properly and to maintain our "grass-fed" status, and we wouldn't have it any other way!
