Farm Happenings for August 19, 2022, Local lamb available!

Posted on August 14th, 2022 by Scott Kosiba

Hey Tumbleweed Family!


As we approach our final two deliveries of the season, we're thrilled to announce we've teamed up with Teepee Sheep Company, a local Sublette operation, to bring you lamb!

Teepee Sheep Company -
Cass and Maggie Urbigkit are third generation sheep producers in Western Wyoming. Their
Rambouillet flock grazes open range year round, ensuring the product is raised on the best
feed possible in a holistic management system. This product is organic, antibiotic free, 100%
grass fed, and raised utilizing the best low-stress management practices possible to ensure
that the customer always receives the most mild, delicious lamb product available. Cass and
Maggie are both Sublette County natives and are excited to finally be able to offer their
products locally to feed their friends, neighbors and local community.

We'll have a limited supply of the following Teepee Sheep Company cuts so order them early:

Lamb Chops @ $13.00/package
Lamb Shanks @ $12.00/package
1/2 Leg Deboned @ $22/package
1/2 Shoulder Rolled & Deboned @ $14.00
1/2 Rack of Lamb @ $12/package

Reminder: Tumbleweed Farms' final delivery of this season will be August 26th. That means, including this Friday's delivery, we'll have 2 more deliveries this season. For customers, you won't need to do anything to your profile and will not be charged after the final delivery date. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause but we're hoping our advance notice will provide time to plan. If you're interested in case/wholesale purchasing for canning, peach season, etc., let us know.

Madeline and I started Tumbleweed Farms five years ago because we believed Sublette County deserved fresh produce at an affordable price. That's as true now as it was in 2018. We love this community and it's been an absolute pleasure serving you but we've decided to step back and focus on other pursuits in Sublette County. We're grateful to you all for your support and hope to see you around the community sometime soon.

Scott and Madeline


As always, please review the following notes.

Share storage, pickups, & preparation: We've honed our supply chain over the years to make the time from harvest to table as short as possible. It's looking like we're in for a hot Sublette summer and you can do your part to make sure your share is as fresh as can be.

1. Home delivery customers, consider putting a cooler outside your home the night before deliveries with ice or icepacks. Keeping your share out of the sun and in cool temps during the day will make a big difference when you come home from work!

2. Pick up customers, we're on the road delivering to our pickup locations early on Friday mornings. Once they're dropped off, we have little control over conditions. Some of our pickup location partners have the ability to and are willing to refrigerate shares until they're picked up but not all. Sublette Co. Visitor Center pickups especially, please try to pick up as early as possible on Fridays. The visitor center opens at 10 am. 

3. Re-hydrate your greens! We live in a very dry climate and despite all of our best efforts, your greens may arrive looking a bit wilted. Fear not! As soon as you get home, place your greens (spinach, kale, etc.) into a bowl of icewater to rehydrate your produce. They'll be crisp and delicious and ready to eat.



As always, we strive to get the best produce in your share every single week. If you're not satisfied with anything you've received in your share, let us know and we'll make it right ASAP.



Thanks a million (peaches),

Madeline, Scott, and Heath
