Grass-Finished Lamb: Another Local, Sustainable Choice at Front Row Meats



At Front Row Meats, San Diego's only whole-animal butcher shop, we are proud to offer our customers sustainably raised, grass-finished lamb sourced locally from Marin County's Marin Sun Farms. By choosing locally sourced lamb from within California, we ensure the freshest, highest quality meat while minimizing the environmental impact of long-distance shipping.


The Nutritional Advantage of Grass-Finished Lamb


Grass-finished lamb, derived from animals that have been raised on a diet of grass and forage, rather than grain, boasts a nutritional profile superior to its grain-fed counterparts. According to a study by Ponnampalam et al. (2014), lamb raised under extensive finishing systems, such as grass-finishing, has health beneficial long-chain omega-3 fatty acid levels. Omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and improved mental health (Simopoulos, 2002).


Supporting Local Farmers and Sustainable Practices


By sourcing our lamb from Marin Sun Farms, a local farmer in Marin County, California, we support our local economy and reduce the environmental footprint associated with shipping meat across the country or from overseas. Grass-fed animals are typically raised in free-range conditions, allowed to graze in open pastures. This lifestyle results in healthier, happier animals, and contributes to soil health and biodiversity, marking it as a sustainable choice in contrast to conventional farming methods.
