I agree with above more than the Mail-Order route. Encourage the small farms....What is your location?
Alternatively, research your local African/Caribbean communities & Halal butchers as their meat tends to be raised & butchered to their standards.
The Ethiopian community in Seattle provides some excellent meat for example.

1. Great suggestion about eatwild.com, very high-quality and pure meat available therefrom.
2. FYI, from what I understand, most mainstream lamb is from New Zealand and thus is fairly "clean" already. Apparently, as mainstream meats go, lamb is one of the cleanest out there because of the farming practices in New Zealand. So just make sure the lamb is from there and you should be okay, although I totally agree that organic is best and, if you can choose organic, do. I just brought this up by way of saying that storebought lamb from New Zealand is supposedly pretty pure/clean compared to other meats.

I find that New Zeland lamb is too gamey. I do like local lamb my family gets from small farmers and we just love the lamb flank steak we get at Raleys. It isnt organic but we cant seem to get that cut any where else, and the price is right. When ever my mom gets lamb from whole foods (New Zeland), its usually the cheap cuts and they are awful so I would encourge you think about purchasing in the middle to high range of cuts, if you can afford it, depending on the source.
