Vendor Highlights: I O Ranch Lamb

At I O Ranch Lamb, all of our grass-fed lambs are raised right here on our ranch in Lampasas County,

Texas. All lambs are 100% grass fed and finished, and are all natural. The sheep graze freely on our fields and pastures on the I O Ranch, which sits along beautiful Heatley Creek and the Lampasas River.

The lambs are never given any growth hormones or antibiotics. In the rare event that an animal gets sick and needs medical attention, that animal is pulled from the program and sold through the traditional commercial markets. Every step is taken to ensure that all of the animals are treated humanely, and are stress free. After all, a stress free animal will grow better, be healthier, taste better, and will be more tender. Because we sell you only lamb from our ranch, we know each animal’s history. We personally guarantee the purity and quality of our lamb.

 

The lamb you buy from I O Ranch Lamb is 100% grass fed and finished – never placed in feed lots, never given hormones or antibiotics.

 

A growing body of research indicates that eating grass fed meat is a healthy choice for your family, because it is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin E and beta-carotene, and lower in fat than grain fed meat. We believe that eating grass fed lamb from I O Ranch is a healthy way to enjoy meat in your diet.

 

Come on by and say hello to Jeff and he will answer any question you may have.
