This is a fresh twist on a classic Greek combination, where we've mixed goat mince, lemon thyme, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
Our sausages are hand made at Feather and Bone using natural skins and don’t contain any preservatives, gluten or fillers. All meat used is fully pasture-raised and chemical, hormone and antibiotic-free.
Produced at our Marrickville butchery using the whole, farmed Boer goat available meat from the Gourmet Goat Lady.
We received our first delivery of Jo and Craig Stewart's 'Gourmet Goat Lady' Boer goats farmed at Buena Vista Farm near Gilgandra in November 2011 and we've been buying it almost every fortnight since then. Goat has it's fans, like our friend, James, who says 'Goat is the new lamb', but it's taken a while for people here to catch on. In the rest of the world, goat is the most commonly eaten meat and goat milk the most widely consumed but, while we export a lot, we don't eat much. That's due partly to unfamiliarity and partly to bad press.
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 - sometimes it's plump and delicious and other times stringy and tough. The variable quality and unfamiliarity means that folks are a little wary of goat and tend to default to lamb, but healthy, farmed goat, such as those tended and managed by the Stewarts, is an altogether different product with consistently high quality and wonderful flavour.
