Acorn Ridge Beef is Scotch Highland Beef

Here at Acorn Ridge Highlands, we specialize in raising Scotch Highland cattle. Unlike most other breeds of cattle, Scotch Highlands do not need to store extra body fat to stay warm (the Highland is insulated by long, shaggy hair). This fact has led Scotch Highlands to become world-renowned as a lightly marbled, fine of grain, and distinctively flavourful beef.

Acorn Ridge Highlands is often referred to as one of the country's most progressive breeders, because of our commitment to raising our cattle as naturally as possible. Unlike most other cattle-growers, our Acorn Ridge Highlands are raised on natural feed - free of antibiotic treatment and steroid implants. The fact that our Scotch Highland cattle are naturally hardy and disease resistant helps us to achieve this goal.

As their name suggests, Scotch Highland cattle originated on the islands of Scotland. In the British Isle, Highland beef is recognized as the finest available and fetches premium prices. It is interesting to note that, for many centuries, Highland beef has been the beef of preference for the Royal dining tables, and the Queen of England maintains her own herd at Balmoral Castle, near Braemar, Scotland.

All of our customers are ensured of receiving the highest quality Scotch highland beef because all of our beef is fully aged for optimal flavor and tenderness.

Why Highland Beef - Our father was recovering from his third open heart surgery, and many members of our family were being diagnosed as having high cholestorol levels. However, we did not want to sacrifice the enjoyment of a delicious steak or juicy hamburger from time to time.

It was important to us to find an alternative to the beef available in most grocery stores and butcher shops. We analyzed over 150 different breeds of cattle to find the one breed that best suited our needs. We decided on the Scotch Highland for many reasons. This particular breed sounded like it would meet our criteria - lower in fat and cholestorol, but without sacrificing the flavor and tenderness of fine cuts of beef.

We then set out to purchase some of this beef for our personal use. However, after doing so, we found availability was very limited. Most "cattle" people were not interested in the Scotch Highland due to its slower growth rate, thus making it very costly for them to raise. We felt the best way to try it was to raise a couple of our own. we were very excited about our results and felt there were others with the same needs as ours.
