Default Where to buy lamb?

Could some of you friendly Austin folks point me in the direction to buy good lamb? (organic would be nice, but not necessary. Local would be nice too but NZ or Aussie is fine).
We have recently arrived from Hawaii, but grew up with Kiwi parents, so I gots to have my lamb. HEB seems to have a bit, and of course WholeFoods and Central Market do too, but are there any butchers out there who have a good supply? I did go to Wheatsville and was shocked at the price of the frozen, organic lamb. $22 for one rack of lamb?! I am more interested in chops, legs, steaks etc.
Thank you!

I buy my lamb at Costco because it's NZ lamb. The lamb sold at HEB is American lamb and I wasn't impressed. I've seen lamb cuts at Newflower but I don't know if it's organic.

Randalls. At least the Randalls at Bee Caves & Walsh Tarleton always has lamb, and it's reasonably priced to.

Newflower has lamb and it isn't too expensive IIRC.

There is a vendor at the Sunset Valley Farmers Market selling lamb. I believe it was organic. I didn't get the price, but farmers market prices are generally reasonable.

I saw quite a bit at Sprouts yesterday but didn't look at its origin.
