Rare Heritage Breed Randall Cattle
Many of America’s once-common farm animals face extinction if we do not take action. According to the Livestock Conservancy, 80 different types of farm animals have breeding stock numbers so low as to cause concern, and critically rare breeds such as our Randall Cattle represent an "irreplaceable piece of earth’s biodiversity" and offer incredible variety that may be needed for future farming – such as robust health, mothering instincts, foraging, and the ability to thrive in a changing climate. These farm animals are a vital part of ensuring local food security for us and maybe even for our planet – now, and for the future.
The good news is thanks to the hard work of the team here at Story Hill Farm and dedication of our farmhand Derek Kuebeck we're expecting numerous baby calves in early winter 2022 and if you want to support a cow you'll get exclusive updates and a behind the scenes look at the "Moo" of your choice!. Winter hay is twice as expensive as it was last year so if you have always longed to be a part of farm but haven't found your way there you can support one of our rare cows! In order to keep their genetics appropriate for this tri-bred species we need to develop them for milk, meat or oxen. We would like to be the first heritage Beef producer in the state of Delaware and to do that we need a herd size of 30 and we need good pasture grazing land and/or hay to before we can start raising the best tasting beef that will help us offset the coasts of caring for these magnificent animals. $10 a month will cover one bail of hay and that may not sound like much but on the farm every little bit helps us do more good! Details and more photos of cows to sponsor coming soon!
