From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers and landowners through our #FridaysOnTheFarm stories. Visit local farms, ranches, forests and resource areas where USDA customers and partners do right and feed everyone.

Meet the Brady family – owners of Shaggy Coos Farm in Easton, Connecticut – and learn how they worked with USDA to diversify their operation.

Named after the Scottish Highland cattle it’s home to, Shaggy Coos Farm is owned and operated by the Brady family – Tim, Bernadette, Matilda and Margaret. While the Bradys started out only raising cattle in 2007, they now produce and sell beef, pork, poultry and dairy products.
