A warm welcome to my website. My name is Grace Noble, I farm Highland cattle in the beautiful Scottish countryside of Deeside in rural Aberdeenshire. I am a working mother of 2 teenage children. I was born and brought up on a small Scottish west coast island where, in my early years, I was introduced to farming and always admired the iconic Scottish Highland cow.
My Highland Cattle winter out on the hills of the Cairn O’ Mount, they happily live outdoors all winter withstanding the wildest of Scottish winter weather, including snow storms, harsh wind and rain and take advantage of natural shelter amongst the native Scots pine woodlands. They forage on an abundance of mixed grasses, flowers, heather and trees. There habitat couldn’t be more idyllic for this majestic, native breed. Clear running burns providing their drinking water with fresh, unpolluted air and pasture, giving them as healthy a lifestyle as nature intended- creating a true Beef delicacy, like a fine dram of pure malt whisky.
I supplement their diet with our own harvested silage and minerals to ensure any minerals that may be deficient in the ground are provided, keeping them in top condition.
Draff, a natural bi-product from our neighbours at the Deeside Brewery is also offered to steers and heifers reaching maturity for beef production. This enriches the texture and flavour in the final 6 weeks, delivering a prime quality beef from the field to your plate.
Our cows are brought down to the lower farm land here in Banchory for their bi-annual health checks. This helps me keep an extra close eye on the herd during spring and earlyautumn calving periods. All my beef cattle are born here. I also source locally from the Balmoral fold (the Queen’s own Scottish fold) just 28 miles away from the farm.
Aberdeenshire Highland Cattle offer complete transparency throughout the farming process; rearing the cattle and producing the beef to the highest ethical and environmental standards.
With a butchery and maturation facility on site at my farm, I can retain complete control over both the quality and provenance.
So come and ‘join the herd’ at my farm! Come and meet our cattle, see how they are raised and learn all about my farming methods and taste for yourself what I consider to be the most delicious Premium Quality Beef available.
