  • Health Benefits of Lamb

    Wisconsin Grown, Quality Lamb

    Lamb is a red meat with tremendous health benefits. Obtained from a young sheep not more than one year of age, it serves as a great source of necessary nutrients in the body. Sheep were among the first animals ever to be domesticated by humans more than 10,000 years ago. The domestication of sheep mostly likely started out in the middle east, in what is now Turkey. Lamb was not introduced into the Western Hemisphere until the early 16th century when the Spanish explorers brought sheep with them on their explorations.
