Boer goat (farmed)
We've been buying whole, award-winning, 'Gourmet Goat Lady' Boer goats farmed at Buena Vista Farm near Collie since November 2011. We receive chevon (milk and grass-fed) and capretto (milk-fed) goats.
What is 'farmed' goat?
90% of the goat sold and exported in Australia is feral or 'low input' composite goat - marketed under the more poetic euphemism of 'Rangeland' goat. The quality of feral goat meat can be highly variable depending on where and how the goats lived and buying it can be a bit of a lottery.
But healthy, farmed goat is an altogether different product with consistently high quality and wonderful flavour.
Because we buy the whole body (no boxed meat) we can usually cut anything you require. So if you don't see a product you're after here, just email or call and we'll make it for you.
