Spring Has Sprung, Time For Lamb!

Flowers blooming, bees hard at work, new life everywhere….it’s springtime! Easter and Passover are just around the corner, too, which means lamb season is in full swing. This year we have an amazing lamb program, featuring two exceptional California producers, designed to offer the finest selections for your table.

Sheep and Lambs at BN Ranch

Sheep and Lambs at BN Ranch

Don Watson‘s Milk-Fed, Pasture-Raised Lamb is very special–the animals are born in in the Napa Valley during the winter, fed for four months on mother’s milk, then harvested before weaning. The meat extremely tender, with a distinctly mild flavor. This lamb is very limited, so please visit the markets, or call us to pre-order for your Passover and Easter celebrations.

BN Ranch Grass-Fed Lamb is a traditional, rich, full-flavored lamb, born on farmland outside of Tracy, California. These lambs are raised by John Cubiburu, who comes from a family of Basque shepherds, and is committed to the BN Ranch philosophy of raising and harvesting animals. The lambs are grown and finished solely on grass, moving seasonally through open pastures. BN Ranch lamb is available now at both Markets, as well as from the Bi-Rite store on Instacart.com, our partner for grocery delivery in San Francisco.

We are always committed to offering you the best, most humanely-produced food possible. With Don Watson and BN Ranch lambs you will get exactly that. Come in to either Market to speak with our butchers about which option is best for your needs. Whether you need boneless lamb or an entire rack, we can help.
