Highland cattle were first domesticated around 5500 BC and can be found all over the world. They can live up to 20 years old and cows can have up to 15 offspring. 

Highlands have a great sense of direction and will always find their way home if they wander too far off. They hum to communicate with each other and other animals like goats, horses, deer, etc.

Highland meat is of exceptionally high quality. With 40% less fat and cholesterol than normal beef, and a succulent, tender nature.

Although the classic image of a Highland cow is ginger in color, they also come in other shades — red, yellow, brindle, dun, silver, white, and also black. When they are being shown they are groomed with conditioner and oils to make their coats gleaming and fluffy. The horns grow differently in males and females. The bulls horns are thicker, curving forward with only a small upwards rise near the tip. The cows’ horns are more slender, curve upwards and are also longer than the bulls’ horns. In Scotland they are called a Coo.

There is no escaping the fact that Highland cattle are ridiculously cute. With their shaggy coats, just-out-of-bed hair, long curving horns and teddy-bear appearance, they are highly photogenic. These features are not just pretty though, they also enable the cows to survive harsh winters in tough environments. Their thick woolly undercoats keep them warm, while the longer guard hairs shed snow and rain. Long eyelashes and a thick fringe of hair protects their eyes from stinging hail, lashing rain, insects, and biting winds, and they use their big horns to rake away snow in order to get to food (and for a good scratch!). The fact that these things make them look adorable is just a happy bonus.

Rather than being called a 'herd' the collective name for a group of Highland cattle is a fold. This dates back to the olden days in Scotland when Highland cattle were brought into an open stone shelter at night called a fold, to protect them from the weather and predators.

Meet Our Tortoise


Albert is a Sulcata/African Spurred Tortoise and has been part of the family since 2012. Currently, he is well over 130 lbs and approximately 25 years old.

He enjoys a diet of mostly grasses, veggies and a little fruit.
When startled he may hiss, but he is very friendly.

Albert does not hibernate, but his metabolism does slow down during the winter months. He prefers dry, hot weather, as he comes from the African desert. Sulcata tortoises are the third largest tortoise in the world and can live over 100 years and grow over 200 pounds.

Each year, May 23rd is dedicated to our friends, the turtle, and tortoise. World Turtle Day is not only about showing love and adoration towards turtles but also making sure we can protect them as well as their various habitats. It’s important to know what the difference between a turtle and a tortoise is.

Our Kunekune Pigs

The Kunekune is a small breed of domestic pig from New Zealand. Kunekune (pronounced Cooney Cooney) are hairy with a rotund build, and may bear wattles, a pair of tassels, hanging from their lower jaws.


Their color ranges from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip, black, brown, and can be tricolored or solid to a variety of spotty patterns.

They have a docile, friendly nature, and can successfully be kept as pets. Kunekune pigs vary from 24″ to 30″high and weigh between 140-220 lbs. They are covered in long hair, which can be straight, wavy or curly.

They have a medium head with either prick or semi-lop ears. Their body is best described as non-extreme, not long and lean like a commercial pig, or short and pot-bellied like the Vietnamese variety.

By the 1980s, only an estimated 50 purebred Kunekune remained. As of 2010,the breed no longer faces extinction, with breed societies in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Kunekune has remarkable social learning with astonishingly good memory and can sustain itself by feeding on nothing other than grass.
