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.
