American Lamb

Before it makes it to your plate, American Lamb is raised by farmers and ranchers with a shared connection to caring for to the land, the animals, and the local communities they serve across America. When you choose American Lamb, you support the nation’s shepherds and their families and help to sustain working farmland and farm communities. These family farmers and ranchers throughout the U.S. are passionate about providing you with high quality, flavorful lamb in a way that sustains our industry, supports our communities, and preserves our land and resources for future generations.

Our farmers and ranchers are committed to practices that protect the environment, improve land management, and foster animal well-being. Sheep improve pastures and rangeland by cycling vital nutrients back through the soil, minimizing erosion, and encouraging native plant growth. Sheep graze on a variety of nutrient-dense grasses, legumes, and forage will produce succulent, tender meat.

From large scale range operations in the west to smaller farm flocks in the east, raising sheep improves the quality of our land, supports rural communities, and provides food and fiber for the nation.

The Montague Company

It began in 1857 in San Francisco, during the Gold Rush Era. Founder Wilfred Weed (W.W.) Montague started his business in a small way, selling pots, pans and general hardware items. He was known as an inventor and had a reputation for uncompromising quality.

Gradually, he began manufacturing “French” ranges, a combination of brick with steel ovens and tops, which evolved into the present line of ranges. In 1902, the original “Locke and Montague” was succeeded by a corporation and by 1910, the company known as W.W. Montague Company, Inc., was acknowledged as “The Leading Stovehouse on the Pacific Coast,” as noted in Hammonds Handy Atlas of the World. In 1918, W.W. Montague Company was succeeded by Montague Range and Furnace Company, Ltd.

Early in the 1920s, Joseph M. Whalen was employed, starting out as a sheet-metal mechanic; he was later made foreman. He acquired the company name and equipment in 1932, after the concern encountered financial difficulties in the Depression era. In 1936, the company operations were split, with partner Roy Shae taking on the furnace side of the business. Joseph Whalen retained the range business and moved to Mission Street in San Francisco, where he began operating under the company’s current name of The Montague Company.

Today, as a family-owned, family-operated business, The Montague Company continues the proud tradition of using skilled techniques and fine craftsmanship, acquired by over 140 years of specialized manufacturing experience, to bring you the highest-quality commercial cooking equipment.
