Our Products and Recipes
Russell Sheep Co LLC strives to offer the most delicious, nutritious lamb available. The feed and forage used in raising our lambs is of the highest quality available. The flock benefits from optimally managed pastures and updated facilities. Customer satisfaction and loyalty is important to us, and we enjoy meeting customers at farmer’s markets, making deliveries to customers and chefs, and welcoming folks to the farm by appointment.
During this current pandemic, several of our customers are best served by placing a direct order with us to be picked up at the farm by appointment, at the Muncie Minnetrista Farmer’s Market (second and fourth Saturday), or at the Broad Ripple Farmer’s market (first and third Saturday). To best meet this need, we welcome you to call us, place your order, and we can process a credit card payment with a service fee of $1.50. Your order will be ready for pick up when you arrive. To place an order, call Diane at 765-749-0287.

When the weather turns nasty, slow roasted lamb shanks become a wonderful comfort-food. Whether you’re following an Osso Buco recipe, slow-roasting with garlic and wine, or putting them in a slow or pressure cooker, this flavorful, fall off the bone meat is rich and tasty!
Yes! You want it and we have it. Fry it at a little less temperature than you would pork bacon.
‘Lamb-burger’ is available in one and five pound packages. We also have patties, packaged 3 or 4/pkg. Our favorite is to season with a bit of lemon pepper seasoning before cooking, but let your imagination be your guide.
Here is a delicious alternative to traditional pork sausage. We offer both 1 lb. bulk pkgs. and 1 lb. links.
Our customers rave over these brats. We offer traditional, Wisconsin blend brats as well as garlic butter brats. Try both and just try to decide which is your favorite!

This convenient, delicious selection is one of our top sellers. It has been seasoned, cooked, and thinly sliced… all that you need to do is warm it and enjoy!
Our shelf-stable summer sausages come in two flavors; mild and hot. This ready-to-eat meat is perfect for charcuterie boards, and appetizer trays.
