Superior Farms Lamb, 17th Americas Food & Beverage Show, Miami, Fla.

Lamb is very good especially when it is pasture raised. At Superior Farms in California that's exactly what they have been doing since 1963. This sustainable, employee owned company raises Suffolk lamb breeds naturally without antibiotics or hormones.  "We have our own casing company. We utilize 98 percent of the lamb in our company," said Joey Garrard, Assistant VP of Sales and employee owner, during an interview at the 17th Americas Food & Beverage Show, Miami Beach, Florida.

Superior Farms gives back to the community through many sustainable practices like offsetting 50 percent of their electrical needs with a wind turbine plant in Dixon, California.

They also encourage family ranchers to maintain healthy fields free from pesticides and waste. In turn ranchers rotate their flocks from field to field so booth the land and the flocks are able to grow well.

"American lamb is a lot of work. Owners of the company are working with the government to stop older growers from getting out of the business," said Garrard.
