I had a flock of dairy goats for awhile and the last year I had them I bred my Nubians to a Boer buck. At falls' end my husband had not gotten his deer during hunting season , and since we had a very young, but very big wether ( castrated male goat ) we decided goat meat would fill our freezer . Best decision ever, and best, I mean BEST meat ever. Better than beef or venison. I think Americans should realize the rest of the world covets goat meat, milk, and cheeses,and raising goats just makes more sense economically. Gotta get some more goats....but I have too many spotted sheep right now.

Just butchered our first goats. It is so good! Kind of reminds me of deer, but not as dry. Very similar to lamb. We are loving it!

I have eaten goat many times in Mexico, where it is quite common. I like it a lot. People tell me it tastes like venison, but I've never eaten venison. It is earthy, rich-tasting, and goes well with lots of spices. This fall we will be eating some of our own for the first time. Hope they turn out yummy!
