Watch: Randle Farms Is a Global Lamb Destination

The family farm in Alabama offers halal butchering facilities

Outside Auburn, Alabama, the Randle family has been running their eponymous farm for over 40 years. What began as a beekeeping enterprise turned into a sheep- and lamb-rearing business that is accessible to people of all cultures, and is breaking down barriers in the community.

This week's mini-documentary from the Southern Foodways Alliance film program features Randle Farms' founder Frank Randle, a father of two whose sons have grown up working on the family land with him. After a request from a visitor for lamb to purchase, the Randle's updated their business to include halal and other formal and traditional butchering facilities. The result is a farm that caters to clients with a wide variety of needs from all over the world, and is beloved by regulars for being a welcoming place to do business.
