Who We Are

Hideaway Acres started its Scottish Highland breeding operation in December of 2009, with the purchase of Bunnie, Rachel, and Brutus from Misty Morn Farm near Cambridge, Ohio.  


The property used has been family owned for over 50 years, and has been operated as a working farm for well over 100 years. That level of familiarity with the ground and neighbors allows Hideaway Acres to maximize the placement and use of spring water feeders, fences and gates, buildings, and access roads... while also enabling beneficial uses of neighboring properties to expand and enhance its farming capability.

Interesting Facts

Our breeding herd consists of 8 females bred by 6 different farms in 5 states.
  • Bunnie, Rachel - Misty Morn Farm, Cambridge, Ohio

Until acquiring their first cows in 2009, none of the people involved with Hideaway Acres had been to a livestock show of any kind, for any species (including county fairs).
