While Ontario consumers turn to lamb roasts and leg of lamb in the cold winter months, come summer they want quick foods and barbeque-friendly choices. In Perth County, one sheep producer rose to the challenge. Erbcroft Farms began producing lamb bacon, burgers, curry pies, mutton sausages and more. To ensure that no part of the carcass goes unused, Erbcroft Farms also sells soup bones and tanned hides. Erbcroft Farms is growing thanks to products that entice consumers to choose lamb year-round.
