Mutton! (aka Old Sheep Meat)

Hey everyone who lives in the Michiana area! I need some help.

I am one of those really weird people who looooves the funky, musky taste of mutton. That is, fatty old sheep meat. It's not popular in the US but I have very fond memories of my grandmother roasting mutton and serving it with mint jelly. I was living with her in East Lansing, MI at this time in my childhood and I seem to remember her getting it from the butcher that worked at Meijer. Whether it was special order or she had the secret hookup for mutton, I don't know.

However, it certainly is not in any Meijer stores in South Bend or Michigan City! Or at any butcher shops or other grocery stores...I've tried Indian markets, Latin grocers, and even called a Lebanese butcher but no luck! Argh! Anyone have any sources for this? I will be posting this on the Chicago area board too. Thanks for your help!
