THE OLD WAY IS THE NEW WAY
A BIT OF HISTORY
We really love people. And we really love good food. So when Morgan Valley Lamb came up for sale, we jumped at the idea of being able to provide quality, delicious, local lamb to good people throughout the state of Utah. Our main man, Wes, had to brush up on his lamb cuts, but it came pretty easily because he was raised on a grass-fed cattle ranch. He understands how quality meat comes from quality animals who live on local ranches and who are raised on quality feed. And that’s what he wants to give to you when you eat Morgan Valley Lamb.
Jaime and Linda Gillmor felt the same way when they founded Morgan Valley Lamb in 2001, selling their lambs to high-end restaurants and supermarkets in Utah. They have been part of a family-owned sheep ranch for over three generations and they were committed to bringing local lamb to Utah instead of selling the meat out of state. They built a strong business foundation with their quality product and service, giving Utah’s finest restaurants the lamb that people loved and continued to seek after and talk about. Then, in 2012, the Gillmors decided it was time for a change. Jaime met Wes and they found they shared a great passion for bringing a quality product to their communities so that people could get healthy, superior meat instead of settling for whatever was leftover.
Wes and Nikki Crandall and their three little kiddos, along with an employee or two, join many hard working, Utah family ranchers, in the commitment to bring you the highest-quality lamb through a network of amazingly talented Utah chefs and vendors. We feel blessed that we have the chance to work with the people who own and run their own businesses and choose to provide local meat to their customers. We also feel blessed that we get to meet so many great people who love buying local, quality, delicious meat, and who teach us so much about the great communities we are a part of.
You’re going to love Morgan Valley Lamb! Whether you eat a choice cut at one of the delightful restaurants it is sold at, or whether you buy our tender meat from a farmer’s market for your own special recipes at home, remember all the thought and care we’ve put into providing good food for you. Because we really are committed to providing people with local food that they can enjoy and trust. Thanks for making Morgan Valley Lamb a part of your food choices. We appreciate the opportunity to provide something that matters to you and your family.
