Rush Creek Farms is located on the fertile prairie soils of east-central Illinois just outside of Champaign-Urbana. The 15 acre farm was established in 2005 and is owned and operated by Andrew and Jennifer Miller. We raise New Zealand fullblood, purebred, and percentage Kikos as well as commercial Kiko/Savannah/Boer crosses on pasture with minimal inputs.
