Pittsburgher Highland Farm wants you to know where your food originates and how – conception to consumption, pasture to plate, farm to fork. It is part of our mission to make food consumers, be they our own customers or someone else’s, or simply the curious and interested, aware of food sources. Most consumers know little about the food they eat beyond that which is presented via labeling and grocery store merchandising. It is for this reason that we invite anyone interested to tour the farm.
Pittsburgher Highland Farm is primarily a grass-fed beef cattle operation featuring Highland and Devon genetics; but we are so much more! The farm tour can be large (groups welcome) or small (couples welcome too) and will include visiting the cattle as up close and personal as desired. It will also include a peek at Highland House, our off grid, on-farm tiny home and, if desired, a 1.25 mile hike that features 17 points of interest including the apiary, composting operation, sustainable gardens, chickens and other cool stuff. See what we do here and why and, above all, know your food source! Be sure to dress appropriately with long pants and appropriate footwear (no open toe shoes, boots are highly recommended).
Tours are available Sunday afternoons only, scheduled in advance. Call Mark at 412-585-2227 or email [email protected] to arrange a customized tour. There is a $10 per person charge with a minimum of $50. A gift card of $25 will be provided. Gift cards can be used to purchase grass-fed and pastured meats and eggs or toward a stay at Highland House.
Signed waiver must be filled out at the farm for everyone before the tour begins.
