Magruder Ranch sheep

Six months ago, we received an 180 pound wether (castrated male sheep) from Mac Magruder.  Eighteen months at the time of slaughter this was a rather large animal, and yet the meat was some of the best we’ve ever tasted.  So when Mac told us recently that he had two more wether available Chef Rhodehamel jumped at the chance.  Two sheep animals arrived today: a Suffolk and the other, a cross breed.

As we begin the last leg of our Puglia Dinners tomorrow, we’ve decided to feature this incredible Magruder Ranch sheep instead of goat as originally planned.  For those who can’t make it in this weekend, the second animal will be aged shortly and on the menu some time next week.
