The Lehfeldt family has a long tradition of raising sheep. Springtime at the Lehfeldt’s brings a crew of sheep shearers that swiftly turn fleecy Rambouillet coats into bags of wool. Their wool is sold to Ibex, where it is turned into high quality merino wool clothing. Lambs are born on the ranch north of Lavina. The bands of sheep are then moved up to the Snowy Mountains where they graze until the snow flies. They process their lamb at the Butcher Block in Roundup, a USDA certified plant, and sell their lamb products at Good Earth Market, “everything from chops and roasts to ground lamb and sausages.” ¬†They have been selling lamb at GEM since 2008, and are proud to be part of the Co-op family. As Erik said, ¬†”With fewer voices in agriculture, it is very important to stand up for the person that stood up for you. Good Earth Market has been standing up for its producers since the beginning.” In return, he continues to support the Co-op in every way he can.
