GUMBO HIGHLANDS BEEF
MacBeth of CherryPoint (13mi from Miles City)
We have been raising Scottish Highland Cattle for over 10 years. With an up-bringing in cattleproduction simultaneous with a life-time of wild-game consumption, we have quickly grown toprefer the superior intense flavor and texture of Scottish Highland beef.There are numerous health benefits of beef raised free to forage on their natural range-landdiet producing a leaner beef, like game.Genetically, Highlands are, also, substantiallyleaner than other beef because they get their insulation from thick shaggy coats rather thansubcutaneous fat.Our humanely-raised, “slow-grown” Highlands arefree to roam far & wide for 2-3 years on spring,summer, and fall pastures with no hormones or antibiotics and minimal-to-no vaccines. Prior tolocal USDA-processing with 21 days of aging,they are finished with at least 2-3 months on freshpesticide-free pasture, making beef available inlate summer or fall.
