Scottish Highlands Cattle

Our Scottish Highlands Cattle are raised as a family. Calves are never separated from their mothers and are allowed to nurse as long as their mother permits. All of our pastures have some forested sections so the cattle get variety in their diet and access to the calming effect of natural woodlands.ย  They are NEVER fed grain.ย  We provide pasture, hay (dry grasses) and fresh water; and of course we love them!

We've Got Your Goat!

We raise our goats on pastures and in woodlands, so they have access to all sorts of leafy greens. We are your best source for a unique meat perfect for specialty cuisine.

More Than Just Fresh!
