That big hairy beast with the scary horns you see on the farm is our Scottish
Highland Cow, Chloe. She arrived at the farm in 2017.
Chloe is a hardy animal with a thick, shaggy double coat protecting her from harsh winter cold. That thick coat means that she needs only the three sided shed she calls home here at the farm. In late spring, she sheds her coat, much as a dog does to get itself ready for the warm weather.
Chloe has a big appetite; she eats a lot of hay, pasture grass and, as all of us should, lots of fruits and vegetables. Chloe weighs about 1,500 pounds. Despite her appearance, she is quite mellow and likes to be brushed. She is not entirely tame but despite her long horns, is a good pet.
