Goat Meat

Goat meat is an important part of a healthy diet for many cultures and is growing in popularity and demand in the United States. Lean, healthy and affordable goat meat is highly nutritious. Currently the US imports more than 50% of the meat consumed here often from as far away as New Zealand and Australia. The environmentally responsible way to consume this meat is to buy it locally, saving the fossil fuel cost to the planet. There are plenty of great recipes available -- do a Google search, you'll be amazed.

We eat goat meat as roasts, smoked, sausage, ground. Tacos, burritos, lasagna, and chili are just a few of our regular meals with goat. Try it -- it's a healthy "other red meat".
