There’s nothing better than a roasted leg of lamb on the table. We have several choices of lamb for your Easter dinner; grass-fed leg of lamb, available both bone-in or boneless and a bone-in leg of our exclusive Salt Meadow Lamb. Read on to learn more about what makes this lamb so special, and get an easy recipe for roasting it.
Choose Salt Meadow Lamb
Our exclusive Salt Meadow Lamb is exceptionally tender and mild, rosy in color and exquisitely flavored. Young lambs (no more than 6 months) are raised on a small farm in Quebec, on a special diet consisting of grass, grain and seaweed to replicate the pré-salé lamb from Normandy, France, renowned for moist and tender meat.
Salt Meadow is unlike any other lamb you have tasted and can be simply roasted with little adornment to best enjoy the exquisite texture and flavor.
Tender and mild, with a lighter color than traditional lamb, it is the ultimate Easter dinner. The 7.5 lb. average bone-in leg will serve 8-10 people and will satisfy the most discerning of lamb lovers.

Roasting a Leg of Lamb
Our Herb Roasted Leg of Lamb with Port Wine Truffle Sauce involves making a thick paste of fresh herbs to coat the lamb and deglazing the pan with port, enhanced with truffle butter, for a beautiful sauce. It’s impressive enough for your holiday feast, yet easy enough for a family dinner.
