Why do we love Borda Family Ranch?

A Partnership

For a serious butcher, the relationship with a rancher is key. Knowing how and where animals were raised, what they were fed and the people behind it ensures a great product in the case and therefore on your dinner table.

Ken Jolly has spent years getting to know the Borda family, even pitching in a few times. This is how he can put his name and promise behind every piece of lamb Butcher Boy sells.

old fashion ranching

The way it was done for centuries before modern factory farming came to be and still the way the Borda Family runs their ranch. Yes it's hard work, but that's how they know they're raising the best lamb in Nevada. The lambs spend their days grazing looking over Topaz Lake and the beautiful Carson Valley.

beautiful Pastures

Natural feed, pure water and tender care all add up to a tasty lamb that you know was raised right.

free ranging

To take advantage of the natural cycle of life, Borda moves their lambs between summer and winter ranges to keep them on natural and native feed as long as possible.


its all about the timing

Borda moves herds around to make sure that they can naturally breed, but let them do so on a cycle that ensures the finished product never over ages and turns to mutton.


Generations of ranchers

Just like the Jolly family has done at Butcher Boy, the Borda family keeps the tradition going for generations to come.
