At Running Chicken Farm, we raise sheep.

Yes, there are some chickens, too. But our mission is the breeding of Scottish Blackface and Scotch Mule sheep. These fellows just happen to also produce some darn tasty lamb.

We focus on producing grass-based meat through humane practices. Our aim is to bring you lamb and chicken with superior flavor.

Out sheep are prominent breeds in the U.K. but fairly uncommon in the U.S. We’d like to see that change because these breeds are an excellent choice for small farms.

Our sheep are a key part of our efforts to maintain a pastoral landscape on our 200 acres of restored prairie, woodlot, and wetland. We raise them entirely on grass.

We also raise a small number of chickens who live their lives on pasture eating bugs and grass. Our chickens are especially chosen for their slow growth and their ability to forage. You’ll find them remarkable “chicken-ey” in taste. Re-discover the sort of bird your grandmother ate.

Find us at the Mount Horeb Farmer’s Market beginning in mid-June.
