Pasture Raised Focus

About Us

While we do love our Scottish breed namesake, we are much more than a hardy winter bovine.


Highland Beef have pioneered a collaborative Beef supply chain model.

Our model is:

  • secure,
  • sustainable,
  • regionally important,
  • animal friendly, and
  • financially beneficial to all supply chain participants.

— all the way from the farm to the consumer.

"After a lifetime of working with livestock, I have been fortunate to find and develop a great working partnership with Highland Beef Pastoral Company. Murray and his team’s simple ‘producer focused’ collaborative approach to their grass finished beef supply chain business is innovative and takes a long term environmentally sustainable posture. For people; knowing exactly where your beef has been ethically raised and processed gives Highland Beef’s international customers sound reassurance that what they are purchasing is some of the best grass finished beef in the world."


David Carter, Principal – David Carter Property & Livestock, Scone NSW Australia.
