Several years ago I began cultivating a small but quality fold of grass-fed Scottish Highlanders. At first I thought they were just neat looking but have since discovered these were actually raised for Royalty consumption. No commoners were ever permitted to feast on this meat.

They are a very ancient breed of Scottish heritage and are known for their hardiness in their rugged native Scottish Highlands, with high rainfall and strong winds. They are affectionally referred to as "Hairy Coos" and a group of Scottish Highlanders is known as a fold, not a herd.

They are the most efficient foragers and browsers, used as live "bush hogs" because they eat most all nuisance plants. This maintains a truly organic method of pasture management. Another very interesting fact is that their meat is genetically, substantially leaner than other beef because they get most of their insulation from thick shaggy hair rather than subcutaneous fat!! Wow, that makes sense.

Within the coming months we will have ground meat, roasts and steaks available only in limited quantities. Our very discriminating and loyal customers are invited to give this lean beef a try.
