Highland Cows (and 8 fun facts you need to know about these legen-dairy beasts!) - Highland Titles

Who wants some delicious beef from a local farm? Going to the butcher tomorrow to pick up our Scottish Highland beef! This was slow-growth, farm-raised in a pasture — no feed lot! The beef was aged for two weeks before being cut! Scottish Highland beef definitely gets a premium (see below for reasons) but we are selling ours for grocery store prices! Hurry and message me before we run out!

“Scottish Highland beef is slow-maturing making it a premium beef which is lean, well marbled with low fat and cholesterol levels whilst remaining rich in protein and flavor, criteria increasingly demanded by today's market. ..... pure Highland beef commands a premium price due to its fine texture, succulent flavour and high protein content. Numerous tests in Scotland have shown that Highland Cattle meat is lower in both fat and cholesterol than even chicken! It also is high in Iron.“

More information about this wonderful breed that we love so much! We are grateful for all the hard work of this couple that helps everyone so much!

What does the future of an endangered breed look like? For Red Wattle Hogs, it looks like these piglets on Kathy and Bill Bottorff's farm in Horse Cave, Kentucky. Less than 1,000 Red Wattles are registered each year and we estimate the global population is less than 5,000. But YOU are making a difference by supporting heritage breeders who are doing the hard work of conservation every day. THANK YOU!

Thank God for two beautiful litters the past two evenings! We cross-breed heritage pigs for “hybrid vigor” meaning that they grow faster and are less susceptible to disease and defects. Also, the cross-breeding of our main breed, Red Wattles, with the Large Black and Gloucestershire Old Spot (GOS) is know to make amazing pork!

Thankful to God for a new litter of pure Red Wattles born early Monday morning!

Sometimes moving hogs from one area to another goes smooth, and then other times it’s a gong show. This sow was headed to an area for her and her babies to have their own space away from the rest of the herd when she decided she wanted to “hide” on the rabbit cage. Of course, we could not have gotten her into that space in a thousand tries if we wanted her to go there.

Taking this month’s hogs to the butcher today if you want to jump in on 1/2 a hog there is one available. We also have a very limited supply of Farmer’s choice boxes left from the one we picked up from the butcher last Friday. See below for prices:

Mullinax Family Farm is blessed and grateful to offer heritage breed pork which has been pasture-raised on a family farm -- yes, a small, real, family farm, not just the word "family" on a huge corporation. We raise a very rare, and extremely delicious breed called Red Wattle (see links for articles on how delicious this pork is https://www.zingermans.com/Product.aspx?ProductID=M-WAT-4 .)

We supplement feed our pigs non-GMO (meaning non-genetically modified) grain from Honeyville Feed and Farm supply (sourced in Indiana) as well as vegetables, produce, breads and buttermilk which results in clean, healthy pork unlike anything you can buy in a grocery store (https://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charleston/heirloom-pork-is-all-about-the-breed/Content?oid=2357554).

The feed, the breed, and the outdoor lifestyle that pigs are meant to live make a HUGE difference in the quality of pork over what you get in the grocery store. These breeds are sought after by chefs at high end restaurants (including Junk Ditch in Fort Wayne) and make for outstanding pork. As you can see in the photos, delicious Red Wattle pork is sold much more expensively by the competition and also online by many retailers for over $10/pound.

The "Farmer's Choice" box is a great way to test out the product in case you are unsure, or have a small family, or limited freezer space.

Large "farmer's choice" box (15 #) of at least 4 different cuts $69.

Small "farmer's choice" box (10#) of at least 3 different cuts $49

1/4 hog (guaranteed minimum of 40# meat) $125 plus $40 processing

1/2 hog (guaranteed minimum of 90# hanging weight) $250 *plus processing

Whole Hog: (Guaranteed minimum of 180# hanging weight) $500 *plus processing

*Processing costs depend on how fancy you get, but most customers average about $1/ pound of hanging weight which includes bacon, smoked hams, breakfast sausage, cracklins, leaf lard and rendered lard.

Half hogs available every month (limited quantity). Farmer's choice boxes available almost every week.
