An Old Breed of Cattle Makes Good Local Eating

Highland cattle are originally from the rugged mountains of northern Scotland. Archaeological evidence dates the breed back to the 6th century, and the animals first came to the United States in the 1800s. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with a family from Dennis who tend a herd of 20-25 Highland cattle for beef.

You can find a recipe for grilled grass-fed steaks on Elspeth’s blog, Diary of a Locavore, and see pictures of the Seawind Meadows Highland cattle.
