Sustainability, land preservation, friendliness toward wolves and coyotes—these are not things you associate with a sheep ranch. But at Lava Lake Lamb
, a conservation-obsessed, almost million–acre ranch near Sun Valley, Idaho, they’re cornerstones. Even better, what’s good for the land is good for business: The lambs graze on everything from sagebrush to alpine herbs, which makes them lean and flavorful.
Lava Lake supplies their free-range, grass-fed lambs to a number of restaurants and retail stores in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, and California. Seek out one of these restaurants and let a chef do the cooking for you, or make your own Lava Lake Lamb burger using their lamb and our recipe for the ultimate Idaho lamb burger.
