The best meat money can buy...
from our fields to your family.

Why Highland Hollow?

Because we're passionate about what we do... and what we eat.


At Highland Hollow, our goal is simple: produce the highest-quality meat products you can buy anywhere… at any price. That’s a lofty goal, but we’ll let our results speak for themselves.


Most commercial meat comes from breeds chosen because they are easy to raise in large quantities. We choose heritage breeds because the meat just tastes better… and we think that’s worth a little extra work.


Industrial-scale farming can’t afford the time and effort to provide individualized care. Our animals are raised and processed only one way: the RIGHT way. This simple approach yields consistently superior results.


We are committed to forging long-term, personal relationships with each of our customers. We believe that if we provide you with high-quality products and treat you fairly, we’ll have a customer for life.

About Us

Meet your neighborhood farmers.

We're the Raylinsky family, and farming is our passion.

Dave Jr. is a fourth generation farmer and third generation butcher, skills which he acquired (along with some trade secrets!) from his parents Dave Sr. and Kim. Benaye is a stay-at-home mom to farmers-in-training Oscar and Olive; she also serves as farm manager and animal midwife. Together, we followed our dream, took the plunge, and founded Highland Hollow, building our farm and our business from the ground up with blood, sweat, and tears. We were originally located on the site of a historic circa 1788 stone farmhouse in Feura Bush, NY. When we outgrew that location, we moved to a beautiful 102 acre farm in the Schoharie valley in March 2016.

Our philosophy is simple: we want to feed you the same way we feed our own family. Our animals are raised organically and naturally with care and respect. We treasure our heritage breeds and feel compelled to carry on the traditions of those that preceded us. We work tirelessly to ensure that each and every piece of meat you purchase from Highland Hollow will be the best you've ever eaten.

Highland Hollow is not some huge commercial meat factory; we're you're next-door neighbors. We're proud of our farm and happy to show it off... stop by and say hello!

Our Livestock

When you want the best meat, start with the best animals.

Highland Cattle

A Scottish cattle breed, Highland cattle are prized for their rich, tender, flavorful meat that is naturally lower in cholesterol and higher in Omega 3, Omega 6, and CLAs than other beef varieties. Highlands are kept at Balmoral Castle to feed the Royal Family of England.

Berkshire Pigs

Berkshire pigs (known as Kurobuta pigs in Japan) are considered “the Kobe of pork” due to the superior marbleization of their meat, making it particularly suitable for long or high-temperature cooking. Our pigs are registered and can be traced directly to established English herds.

Jacob Lambs

An heirloom breed, Jacob sheep are raised for their high-quality wool and leather, and their lambs produce a mild, lean, tasty meat partially due to the low lanolin content of their wool. Our Jacobs are fully registered.

Heritage turkeys

Prized for their rich flavor and beautiful plumage, heritage turkeys are the ancestors of the common Broad Breasted White industrial breed that comprises 99.99% of the supermarket turkeys sold today. Our turkeys are hatched on our farm and are raised on pasture their entire lives.

Muscovy Ducks

Native to Central and South America, Muscovy ducks are now domesticated throughout North America. Popular in Europe, they are large ducks with rich-tasting meat that is thin-skinned, deep red, low in fat, and very tender.
