Belted Galloways in Mid Coast Maine!

Belted Galloway cattle, originally from Scotland, are quite a landmark in Rockport, Maine! The famous black and white 'Oreo Cookie' cows at Aldermere farm are now one of the area's popular attractions.

Aldermere Farm , owned and managed by Maine Coast Heritage Trust, is a traditional New England saltwater farm, with rugged fields, weathered stone walls, a rocky shoreline, and simple yet elegant structures. The farm’s 136 acres include fields, woods, and wetlands, as well as the buildings and grounds. Enjoy a beautiful walk from Blue Harbor House to see the 'Belties' or take the car and enjoy the scenery on the way.
