Having a fondness for cooking ethnic foods, Kathy came up with the idea to raise a few sheep so that she would always be able to have quality lamb for her recipes. They bought two bred ewes, raising them on 17 acres, and the rest is history. For over 30 years, Monsour Farms has been raising all natural, grass fed lamb with quality second to none.
Since he was a little boy, Jack Monsour wanted to be a farmer. Spending the summer months with his grandparents in the country, little Jack learned a love for the great outdoors and an appreciation for all living things. In 1975, Jack married Kathy Hill in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In a short while, they found themselves settled far from the city lights in the serenity of Bedford, Pennsylvania.
The Monsours have continued to expand the family farm and now operate a flock of 1,000 pure bred North Country Eastern Range ewes on 600 acres of lush, picturesque pastures. Located just three miles off exit 146 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Monsour Farms is nestled in the historical district of Dutch Corner. When you purchase Monsour Lamb, you're not only buying the freshest and best tasting lamb you will ever find, but you are also getting the priceless quality of knowing where your food has been raised. We promise that the lamb you purchase is raised from start to finish on Monsour Farms - satisfaction guaranteed.

|"In America, lamb is usually strong flavored and a little course. When you have lamb in France, it is delicate and refined meat, completely different. Jack Monsour has been doing a field selection over a number of years, keeping only the best lambs. His lamb is just like the lamb you get in France. I can't recommend it strongly enough."

Fresh lamb, treated with care, fed a diet that doesn't include by-products and allowed to graze on acres and acres of land. This family run farm takes so much pride in the quality of their lamb and it makes me even more conscious of how I treat and cook the meat in my kitchen Every cut has been succulent, juicy, tender, and above all, fresh."
