Payment: Cash, Check. Located in Granville, New York, Strawberry Ridge is a 118-acre, family-owned farm nestled along the banks of the picturesque Mettowee River in Washington County, near the New York-Vermont border. We grow more than a dozen varieties of crops and specialize in U-pick strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pumpkins and other fall produce. We also raise a herd of Scottish Highland cattle, which are sustained exclusively on a grass-fed diet.we raise our cattle on an exclusively grass-fed diet. They spend their entire lives on pasture. No factory line feed lots. No artificial hormones or antibiotics. At Strawberry Ridge, we believe in the benefits of grass-fed beef. After all, "you are what you eat." Highlands are slow maturing, making meat tender, flavorful and succulent. As previously mentioned, the breed is characterized by it's long coat, which eliminates the need for the thick layer of back fat found in other breeds. This results in leaner cuts of beef. Analysis of highland beef has found to be lower in cholesterol and fat than other breeds.  ​These characteristics are enhanced by our own practices of rotating pasture and providing a grass-fed diet. When compared to grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef has been found to be lower in fat, contain fewer calories, have a healthier ​ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats, and possesses more vitamin E and beta-carotene. A study by the Scottish Agriculture College also determined highland beef is higher in protein and iron than beef from other breeds. In addition, when you purchase beef from us, you can rest assured knowing our animals were raised humanely and ethically. Our cattle spend their entire lives on pasture, which helps maintain a balanced body chemistry (studies have found the concentrations of e-coli pathogens in the internal systems of grass-fed cattle is much lower than animals on a grain-intensive diet). ​Our animals are also slaughtered and processed in accordance with all USDA guidelines.
