Spelling Tuesday Farm was born in 2011, when Sid and Theresa Stenersen moved back from Norway to Theresa’s family farm in the Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina, outside of Franklin North Carolina. A few chickens here, a few sheep there has become quite a few chickens there and a small, sustainable flock of hearty Icelandic sheep that are growing and thriving on the mountainside.
The Icelandic breed is considered a mountain breed, and historically mountain breeds have been milder in flavor, and leaner than the lowland breeds. The meat is indeed very tender with a mild flavor, and is generally described as gourmet meat. With the leaner, European style carcass, and the mild flavor, Icelandic lamb can appeal to the palate of even those consumers who avow they "just don't like lamb."
