3 reasons to enjoy Ontario lamb this spring

3 reasons to enjoy Ontario lamb this spring

We talk about Ontario beef on this blog quite often because it’s something we’re passionate about—serving high quality, delicious, regenerative products that were produced by local farmers and artisans. Beef is a significant part of that, and we’re known for having some of the best steaks and roasts in the city. You’ve also heard us extol the virtues of Ontario pork and poultry, plus all of the incredible locally-sourced snacks, condiments and more we offer in our Yonge Street butcher shop. But there’s another excellent local product we haven’t talked about much lately: Ontario lamb.

Whether you know and love this product already or have been meaning to give it a try, spring is the perfect time of year to put lamb on the menu in your home. Here are three reasons to introduce lamb to your dinner rotation—please visit us in store or place your order online. We’re pleased to offer home delivery to local customers.

Lamb is a high quality, local food

Ontario lamb is an exceptional product that offers a mild flavour profile, so you can add whatever spices, herbs or accompaniments your family enjoys. Olliffe is pleased to offer a variety of delicious lamb products online and in store. Here are a few highlights:

Ground lamb is excellent for creating elevated versions of your favourite meatballs, dumplings, burgers and more. Which leads us to our next point—we love a classic family recipe, but a little change can be a good thing!

Lamb changes up your routine

There’s nothing wrong with a delectable chicken kebab or jucy beef burger, but sometimes, it feels good to switch things up. Lamb is a nutritious lean protein that tastes amazing. We’re not saying it should replace beef or pork—we’d never give up those products!—but utilizing lamb in more dishes is a great way to add variety to your diet. And trust us, a tender, flavourful lamb kebab is a welcome sight at any backyard BBQ!

It’s delicious

Sometimes, the answer is really simple: you should enjoy some tender, high quality Ontario lamb this spring because it’s absolutely delicious. The rest is just the cherry on top! We hope this post has inspired you to add lamb to your spring grilling plans, and maybe to try something new the next time you’re shopping online or in store. Thanks as always for shopping from our family-owned and operated business. Olliffe is dedicated to quality and service as well as contributing to a healthier, stronger local food system here in Ontario, and we couldn’t do it without your support.
