5th generation ranchers Reed and Robyn Anderson raise grass-fed lamb on the 1,000-acre Anderson Valley Ranch in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Blessed with 45–60 inches of annual rainfall and a temperate coastal climate, the Willamette Valley is ideal for raising grass-fed lamb. The Valley’s perfect growing conditions eliminate the need for supplemental feed.
Reed is a pioneer of vertically integrated ranching, owning the land, the lamb, and the Humane Certified abattoir. The animals’ experience is low stress from start to finish, which has a lasting effect on the lamb’s tenderness and flavor.
