If you want to serve lamb on Easter and want it to be the best quality you can find, you should place an order sooner rather than later.

Whenever I visit my daughter Nicolle, who lives in Mississippi, I take Williams Ranches lamb with me, as she loves it. Here, I'm stuffing it with a freshly made tapenade.

Williams Ranches, based in Sebastopol, will be taking orders through Sunday, including at the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market (at the Wells Fargo Center) on Saturday. They always bring extra to the market on the Saturday before Easter but they always sell out before noon. If you know you want lamb, a quick phone call or a stop by their booth this Saturday will guarantee you have it. Williams Ranches lamb is 100 percent grass-fed and is some of the finest lamb I’ve tasted anywhere, ever.

You can reach Kerry Williams at (707)322-3326.

The three most popular cuts for the spring holiday are bone-in legs, butterflied legs and racks, which are perfect for 2 to 4 people.
