When you eat Dutch Barn Farm 100% grass-fed lamb, you are dining on a naturally lean red meat with an absolutely stellar nutritional profile. USDA Scientists who compared grass-fed lambs with lambs fed grain in a feedlot found that "lambs grazing in pasture had 14% less fat and about 8 % more protein compared to grain-fed lamb."1 Grass-fed lamb is an excellent source of vitamin B-12, niacin, zinc, and a good source of iron.2 While other red meats offer those nutrients as well, grass-fed lamb stands out with a surprising nutritional benefit. It is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, the cancer-fighting, heart-healthy fatty acids3.

For more information on the benefits of eating grass-fed meat, we suggest you visit www.eatwild.com or the American Lamb Board's Leanonlamb.com web site
