Hey everyone! I would love to get some opinions on goat meat. I'm thinking of selling goat meat to a retail store. There are the obvious cuts like, loin and rib chops, leg steak, ground, and stew meat. But I"m thinking about maybe trying to make jerky also. If you have never had goat meat, what would you want to try first? I feel that it's important for me to raise awareness of goat meat and that I raise these animals humanely, in open pastures, with their buddies. You can't raise goats in confined feedlots like some cattle. The goats will just perish, they absolutely need to eat brush and grass.
I have harvested and processed my own goats at home for my own consumption. The meat tends to taste like a more mild type of venison. I have grilled goat, oven roasted it, and just sauteed it with veggies, or even had goat burgers.
I feel fortunate to be offered to sell goat meat at a local store. I'm also interested in selling a whole goat to people from the farm in the future.
I have a quick fact sheet on the nutritional value of goat meat.
Any feedback would be wonderful. Thank you so much!
