MINNESOTA LAMB & WOOL PRODUCERS –Consumer Product Page
Welcome to this page! As members of the Minnesota Lamb and Wool Producers Association, we strive to provide consumers with lamb and wool products that sustain our industry, support our communities, and preserve our land and resources for future generations.
Usually, our association has the opportunity to participate at the Shepherds Harvest Festival at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Lake Elmo and the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul. And individual member farms take part in local cooking events, county fairs, fiber festivals, and community celebrations all over the state. These events have provided a way for our members to showcase the wide variety of wool and sheep related products that are available locally, to talk about lamb cooking techniques and hand out recipes, and provide industry related educational information.
This year is different.
