New Zealand is among the world’s best producers of lamb meat for a reason – NZ lamb is leaner and has a more intense flavor. Read on and see what makes New Zealand’s grass-fed, free-range lamb so good for you and your pets.
Home to more sheep than people
It makes perfect sense that lamb is the top choice of meat for people living in New Zealand. In a land with roughly 5.6 sheep per person, generations of New Zealand farmers have mastered the practice of raising lean, healthy, and nutritious lamb. Furthermore, NZ farmers follow strict quality control and animal welfare procedures to ensure that they produce only the best quality lamb for the whole world to enjoy.
A healthy sheep is a happy sheep
With lush grasslands, fresh air, and lots of sunshine, New Zealand offers the ideal conditions for every lamb and sheep to thrive. They are free to roam the rolling hills of New Zealand while grazing upon high-quality grass throughout their lifetime. Their healthy diet and stress-free lifestyle results in very tender meat with superior nutritional quality and distinctive flavor.
Nutritious, low-fat meat
Aside from being lean and tender, New Zealand lamb is also full of nutrients that are good for you and your pet. Grass-fed, free-range lamb meat:
- is a great source of protein, iron, zinc, omega fatty acids, and B-vitamins
- is full of flavor yet low in fat and cholesterol
- contains more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that aids in weight management
