200 years ago our family's Hendry and Henderson ancestors grazed the original Angus cattle in the glens and valleys of Scotland. It has always been our dream to follow in their footsteps with Angus cattle that still retain the genetic traits for taste, texture and marbling that our ancestors developed by patiently breeding for quality beef.

Here in the Northern Tablelands of the New England region of New South Wales, in what is undeniably one of Australia's premium grazing areas, we are able to give these Native Angus a home equal to or better than that which they had 200 years ago.

Our Native Angus cattle are entirely free range, raised on clean air, pristine water and nutrient-rich pastures with no grain, no pesticides, no growth hormones and no antibiotics - ever.

We are committed to farming the way our ancestors farmed and to sharing with you the beef that our ancestors ate - beef that established the reputation of the Angus breed throughout the world.
