Our Goat Meat

Why not try fresh, locally raised goat meat?

Our goats are raised in the fresh air out on pasture planted specifically for their dining pleasure. Over winter, they are supplemented with locally grown hay. They always have constant access to clean water and goat mineral.

Trying goat for the first time? We can provide you with recipes.

Our supply of goat meat (chevon) is seasonal. Kids are born in the spring and are ready for processing at 4-7 months of age. We use a local butcher to process our goats. Because goats are smaller than sheep or cattle, you will be purchasing the entire animal. We can guide you as to how to have it cut - some prefer the traditional roasts and stew meat, while others have it all ground for burgers, etc. You also can take home the organ-meats and bones (great for soup stock!).

Here's what our customers have to say:
"The goat meat is simply delicious! The ground meat is so easy and quick to prepare - and wonderful just plain with a little salt and pepper. It is satisfying to know that I am eating a product that is clean and devoid of additives, coloring, hormones or antibiotics. Thank you for front door delivery of such a healthful product." Andrea
