Why Highland Hollow?
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.
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!
