​According to the American Lamb Board, on average, a 3-ounce serving of lamb has only 175 calories and meets the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) definition for lean.  According to FDA guidelines, lean meat has less than 10 grams of fat, less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat, and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 100 grams (or 3.5 ounces).

As the chart below indicates, 3 ounces of lamb can easily fit within the daily fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol recommendations of the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

​Goat meat is naturally lean, meaning that it is low in saturated fats. It is high in HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and low in LDL (bad cholesterol).

According to the National Kiko Registry, a 3-ounce serving of goat has only 122 calories and meets the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) definition for lean.

As the chart below indicates, 3 ounces of goat can easily fit within the daily fat, saturated fat and cholesterol recommendations of the 205 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Healthier Cheese Options

Fresh, delicious goat and sheep cheese can be a healthier cheese option for your family.


  • Compared to cow's milk products such as cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol.

  • Provides more calcium than cream cheese.

  • Even though goat cheese has fewer calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.

  • Sheep milk has nearly twice the fat as cow or goat milk. However, the fats in sheep milk are primarily monounsaturated and polyunsaturated which have virtually no effect on cholesterol.

  • Plus the fat in sheep milk is made up of short and medium chain fatty acids, making them easier for the human body to digest and eliminate. People who are lactose intolerant can usually enjoy sheep milk products even if they have trouble with cow or goat milk products.

  • Sheep milk has more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than the milk from goats, cattle, and humans. CLA is a cancer-fighting, fat-reducing fat.

Fresh, delicious goat and lamb products are closer than you think!

200 Shadow Circle, Murray, KY 42071



What was once a small sheep operation has now grown to over 110 Polypay ewes and counting with a value-added meat and wool business. Lambs are raised and grown on the farm and processed throughout the year to provide fresh locally raised lamb. Matt is an excellent cook and people are always asking for his advice on cooking lamb, so he started making his spice blends to sell and they have become a customer favorite. The Chadwicks attend many farmers markets to sell their products, in addition to selling online and through farm pick-ups. Contact them online, by email, or by phone and try something different for dinner!
