Update June 2024


We get lots of requests for Highlands as breeding stock and pets.  Highlands are naturally calm and we breed for a calm temperament.  You can look at our Facebook site for the latest videos of where the Highlands have appeared like the Globe light parade.  We do have some animals available.  We are currently sold out of heifers for this year.  We do have available steers for pets.  Prices start at $3,500 for a pet steer or bull and $4,000 for a heifer.   All animals sold as pets are halter broken.  Please contact us if you are interested.  All breeding stock are genuine purebred AHCA registered animals, DNA tested, parentage verified with AHCA registration paper transfer and a full year membership in the American Highland Cattle Association included. 


Don't get fooled by people selling miniature Highland cattle.   They are unicorns - they don't exist.  Highland cattle are naturally short and great for small farms and homesteads.  Miniatures are either hybrids or they are calves that have been taken from their moms prematurely and been purposely stunted in their growth.  If you want genuine Highland cattle, please go to the only internationally recognized Highland breed registry in the USA - the American Highland Cattle Association (AHCA)

Don't get taken by the other scam of buying Highlands that are "registerable".  To get registered Highlands both parents must already be registered.  There is no way to recover a registration if the paperwork trail was dropped.  Caveat emptor!!  There is a big difference in price.  Our breeding stock come DNA tested, parent verified, with AHCA registration papers AND a year membership in AHCA.  They will walk onto your trailer like a horse on a lead.

Order now to hold your place.  Same price - same quality - very different taste

Highland has a taste like Buffalo and is lower in fat and cholesterol.  Great for that healthy diet!


Our butcher is brutally honest about quality because he knows we are as well.  We have worked together almost 10 years to perfect the finishing process for grass fed and grass finished beef.  During our recent harvest he told me that we are consistently producing the best grass finished beef he has ever seen.  Recently he told me that our beef is at the same quality as his own beef – and they grain finish.  He takes pictures of our carcasses to show others what proper grass finished beef should look like.​​

We are a small operation with limited animals and we really don’t want to expand beyond the numbers we currently have because we believe the fact that my husband and I do everything at the ranch personally means that the cattle know us and therefore are calm around us which means the meat is better because they are not stressed.  We have our eyes on the whole herd every day and checking each animal to make sure they are okay.  No hired hand would have the same care as we take when we can daily handle the cattle personally.   We are literally a Mom and Pop operation and really want to stay that way.  

Our beef is cut and wrapped by a Gila County butcher.  The Highland harvest is done here at the ranch and whisked to the butcher shop in the Gryphon Ranch mobile cooler for dry aging at his shop for 19 days.   ​Please refer to the pricing page for prices and how to reserve your beef.  We are proud to be supplying quality meat for the wonderful people who want to buy local beef and support the Arizona ranching community.  Feeding your family locally raised beef feeds several Gila County families as well.   Please let us know what you need.  We specialize in special requests.  

Thank you for buying locally and supporting Arizona ranching.
