The cows in our herd are a mix of dairy and beef breeds, with most of our stock being Scottish Highland crosses.
Grass and More Grass
Our cattle forage during the spring, summer and fall months on our pastures, eating mainly grasses and clovers. During the winter we feed them hay. This means our herd is grass-fed and grass-finished.
We collect our herd's manure during the winter months and compost it for use on our vegetable fields. This is one way we are working to reduce off-farm inputs and make our farm more sustainable.
