Bruce & Samantha
Bruce and his wife Samantha started their farm Back to the Roots™ in 2016. They originally started the farm to provide clean natural food to their family. Over time highland cattle became a large passion for them. They have spent many years working to produce high-quality highlands, building on high-end genetics and pedigrees from around the world. Bruce is a member of the local fire department, is a six year veteran of the US Navy. When not farming he enjoys talking about, learning about, and helping others farms. Samantha and their three children certainly pull their fair share on the farm as they all work to build lasting traditions for the future.
