About this product
We raise our lamb on pasture and brush in the Shenandoah Valley, where they are free to roam and graze as they please. You'll notice a rich lamby flavor that is fresh, bright and almost mysterious -- never overly muttony or too "strong". Flavors like cumin, citrus, mint and cinnamon are perfect foils for the delicate flavor of this ground lamb. Shape into kibbeh, mix with ground beef in meatloaf, or make lamb burgers with cilantro, mint and garlic. The possibilities are endless, the flavor is incredible.
At Grow & Behold, we bring you quality kosher meats, raised on pasture in the US without hormones or antibiotics. Our lamb enjoy a diet which includes all the lushness of the countryside, along with a small amount of grain at finishing, bringing you a quality, delicious product you'll enjoy again and again.

This lamb tastes like nothing I've ever tasted before. I was always reluctant to try lamb, but this has a flavor that is not gamey, a texture that is soft and is simply delicious. It makes any recipe just out of this world, and even served alone, sauteed with some onions and garlic or in kofta balls with some spices, simply delicious.
One of my favorites, for its richness and versatility. Makes excellent lamb chili, dolma, non-dairy pasticchio, lamb meatball for a vindaloo, and so on.
I feel better eating lamb because I know you use lamb that is raised ethically
"Your meatballs taste better than Seth's!" So says my brother Daniel... and even Seth himself, when he finally came over to try. The secret: one pound of this delicious ground lamb to one pound of meatball mix. I should note: We live in the rural far Northeast. Years ago my family ran a sheep farm, so we actually know firsthand what natural, pastured farm raised lamb should taste like. This is it!!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
