Giveaway Time! Win A Lava Lake Lamb Gift Card & Sampler Pack!

Pin It

**UPDATE! The giveaway is over and the winner (Tina!) has been contacted. Thanks to everyone who entered!**

Are you as sick of shopping as I am? Wouldn’t you prefer to just sit back and win a $50 gift card to Lava Lake Lamb AND a $65 sampler pack of grass fed beef and lamb? That way, you could give ‘em both away for the holidays, keep one and gift one, or be a grinch and hoard everything for yourself. Mwahahaha!

Lava Lake Lamb produces some of the tastiest 100% grass fed lamb I’ve ever eaten — and it’s not gamey in the slightest! I can’t think of a better gift for your friends and family than healthy, delicious pastured meat. (That is, unless everyone you know is a vegetarian.)

The best thing about this prize is that you can try before you buy. The meat sampler includes two pounds of ground lamb, two pounds of ground beef, and two packages of rosemary garlic lamb sausages.

And let me tell you, these sausages are fantastic.

What’s easier than throwing some pre-seasoned meat in a pan?

Answer: NOTHING.

If you’re looking for other items to spend your gift card on, definitely try the succulent lamb shoulder…

…or lamb shanks.

Both cuts become fork-tender in a slow cooker or pressure cooker. What’s more comforting on a winter evening than a big bowl of braised lamb-y goodness?

Too skittish to try lamb? Lava Lake Lamb also sells wonderful grass fed beef from the fine folks at Brandon Natural Beef. Win-win!
