Raising rare Russian chickens and growing grapes are the focus at Irish Lady Farm on Oregon Trail Road west of Oregon.

Owner Will Major and his wife Pat Fennell bought the 50-acre farm 17 years ago with the intention of growing grapes for their own winery. They continue to raise and sell concord, marechal foch, and villiard grapes but Major’s real passion is raising Russian Orloff chickens, a critically endangered and ancient breed. He estimated his flock at 2,000 birds including roosters, laying hens, and young birds from newly hatched to nearly mature. Orloffs are a dual purpose breed, raised both for meat and the brown eggs they lay.

The Irish Lady Farm boasts a century-old dairy barn that has been converted to host events, weddings, etc. The spacious haymow of the bank barn offers antique church pews for seating, ample room for a reception and an authentic rural dining experience that features locally sourced foods.
