Heritage farm animals are also know as “heirloom”. I discovered that this fall as I was reading along on the Tractor Supply website – my new favorite store. If you’re not sick of me discussing my heirloom garden, veggies and flowers, then you’ll be in for a treat as I learn more about heirloom farm animals. When I saw this new direction, I did a happy dance. It fits right into my “heirloom” thang in our new country world in my small farming community hometown.
The Livestock Conservancy offers information on heritage farm animals, especially dying breeds, and I have a lot of research to do. Did you know that the Texas Longhorn is a breed with small numbers? Me either! Me neither?! Me too!
I wonder how they’d feel about relocating and becoming a NY Longhorn?
