7 Mile Hampshires is proud to produce American Lamb for our community and family. Our lambs are hand fed and cared for by 4-H and FFA Member Connley Hoagland. We pride ourselves on our flavor, quality and tenderness. Our lambs are forage and grain fed to ensure the utmost quality.
We sell lambs by the halve and whole. Your lamb is taken to Craig's in Salvage MT where they are custom processed to your standards. We can arrange shipping to other processors upon request. Lambs are purchased by live weight at $2.70 lb. Processing runs $75 to $100. Lambs are spring born and ready to process late summer to fall. Average weights are 120-160 lb.
Individual cuts can be purchased through the Farm to Table Store in the EPEC building - Glendive Montana.
Each lamb is sent packaged to the buyer with a packet of lamb cooking tips, recipies, wine pairings, and cut information.
Lamb has great health benefits as you can see in the information below.

On average, 3-ounces of lamb fits easily within the daily fat, saturated fat and cholesterol recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
