End result: we now have meat packed into portions for two and ready to cook. And we know exactly which paddock the lamb came from - now that's local sourcing. I've been consciously cooking and eating less meat recently, so this supply will last us a while. I have a string of recipes lined up to try.
On Sunday night I tried venison for the first time in years (it was tender and lovely), at a dinner with the person who shot and butchered the deer himself. After my recent rooster butchering experience, I'm pretty sure I could not tackle something the size of a deer.
