Lava Lake Lamb-From Pasture to Fork
Sunday, May 22, 2022

Brian Bean likes to tell the story of how he was told he could find Lava Lake Ranch from San Francisco in three simple steps: Pointing his rig on Interstate 80, turning left off it onto Highway 93 and then turning left again at the signpost for Lava Lake Ranch Road.

There, on this delightful piece of ground near Craters of the Moon, he and his wife Kathleen Bean have carved out a life among the lambs while experimenting with sustainable ways of treating the land and methods to cut down depredation from wolves, coyotes and others.

Go along as Eye on Sun Valley’s Marie Gallo takes you to the ranch; then return to her kitchen as Kathleen Bean shows how to make a yummy Lamb Curry using the certified organic and all-natural grass-fed lambs raised in the mountains east of Sun Valley.
