Frank's family has been raising sheep in the Central Valley of California for four generations where the grasses on the hills have assisted them in raising quality natural lamb. Frank and his family now sell their products directly to consumers who appreciate locally-grown, young premium lamb. Frank's Basque Family Farm's lamb has a distinctive, mild flavor, primarily due to the mother's milk, the quality natural feeds, and fresh water that they are provided. The operation is a closed end farm in that every ewe in the flock has been born and raised under the careful watch of Frank and his family. This sets us apart from so many others! Most lamb marketers purchase lambs from different farms around the country which leads to variations in breed, age, size, flavor, and tenderness of the meat. Frank has extended the herd's breeding cycle to provide consistent premium lamb all year for our customer's convenience. We offer free local delivery (within 30 miles from Tracy/Stockton, CA) and can ship anywhere in the U.S. for an additional fee.
On average, a three ounce serving of lamb has only 175 calories and it meets the Food and Drug Administration's definition of "lean". Lamb contains many essential nutrients. Lamb is an excellent source of protein, vitamin B-12, niacin, zinc and selenium and a good source of iron and riboflavin. There are so many delicious cuts of lamb, not only the leg and the crown roast.
