Our young Ontario goats are raised on free-range, no-spray, organic pasture land. Over the winter, they eat 100% non-GMO grass and hay, cut from the same naturally-grown pastures, plus supplemental fresh greens and whole grains. And like all of our animals, they are treated with maximum care and kindness for a stress-free life.
They are raised without antibiotics or any other drugs, medications, or growth promoters. Just all-natural, free-range goats, grown the way our great-grandparents did. We think that this makes for the best-tasting goat meat you can find anywhere.
Goat meat is also known as chevon, capretto, cabrito, yagisashi, or kid. The meat is savoury, and slightly sweeter than lamb — some goat can be gamey, but our meat comes exclusively from young goats, and is mild yet rich in flavour. Goat meat benefits from moist slow-cooking at low heat, which makes it an outstanding meat for stews and curries. Depending on the cut, it can also be absolutely delicious when grilled or barbequed.
You can choose a whole, half or quarter goat. Like our sides of beef and pork, the price is based on the dressed weight / hanging side weight of your goat:
- Whole goat — 47 lbs dressed weight — $18.75/pound.
- Half goat — 23.5 lbs dressed weight — $19.45/pound.
- Quarter goat — 11.75 lbs dressed weight — $19.95/pound.
The above weights are based on the average dressed weight of a goat, which means the initial hanging weight of the sides before dry-aging and butchering. The total weight of your goat cuts will be about 67% of the dressed weight, after butchering into individual cuts and removal of unnecessary bone and fat. This works out to 31.6 lbs of cuts for a whole goat, 15.8 lbs for a half goat, and 7.9 lbs for a quarter goat.
We deliver our goat meat to you fresh-frozen in individually vacuum-sealed cuts.
