Our goal here at Harlow Heritage Farm is to support the heritage breeds by raising awareness of their important role in the family farm. We are a small farm that is growing steadily. In 2010 we purchased our first Berkshire pigs for breeding. We drove to Vermont and picked up 2 gilts and a boar. We raised them for a couple of years. In the spring of 2012 we decided that we needed to take a break for a while from raising pigs. Before we even announced that our Berkshire breeding stock was available for sale we were contacted by a farm that was interested in breeding Berkshires. We traded our Berkshires for two Randall cows one of which was bred. I had been wanting Randalls for 5 1/2 years by then. It seems as though it was meant to be. The day before hurricane Sandy hit I drove to CT and picked up our Randall bull calve who will grow to be our herd sire. On January 3, 2013 our first Randall was born on our farm. It is exciting to go from wanting our dream breed of cattle to having 4 of them in 6 months. We still have some mixed beef breeds that we've picked up in various places. In the spring of 2012 we got our Silver Gray Dorkings. We need to kick some roosters out of the coop so we can have purebred hatching eggs when the time comes. Learning as we go.
