Natural Rearing

Our pedigree highland cattle are never housed, they live outside all the year round and are fed on grass, silage and occasionally a little corn and sugar beet to ensure the right balance of nutrients and vitamins.

Highland cows are tremendous mothers and from the moment the calves are born in the field they take great care of them and make sure they get their first feed unaided. We ensure calves are kept with their mothers for a full 6 months until they no longer need mum’s milk.

Our cattle are allowed to mature slowly in a stress free environment with freedom to roam. graze and forage on plentiful grass with clean water and ample natural shelter. The welfare of our animals comes first, so you can be confident in the quality of the beef.
