100% Grassfed Goats

How We Raise Our Goats

We raise our goats on a 100% grass fed diet - when they're not eating Christmas trees and brambles.  Goats do well on a varied diet and there's no specific distinction for a 100% grass/bramble/Christmas tree/multi-flora rose goat, so we advertise them as 100% grassfed, meaning they never eat any grain.

They graze alongside our lambs where they do the important job of eating what the sheep leave behind and mowing the grass before we move the chickens onto it. We also often put them on overgrown fields or field edges and they help our pigs turn that land back into useable pasture.  In the winter, they help us out by eating left over Christmas trees and enjoying any wreaths that we don't sell.

We raise boer goats, which are known for their high quality meat.  We keep a herd of breeding does and a buck named Nelson.  We breed them each fall and they give birth in the early spring.  This allows us to improve the genetics of the herd each year, raising healthier and heartier animals with each passing season as we select does that do well on our pastures and our farm.  We also have the advantage of kids who are able to live their entire lives in one place, reducing their stress since they never have to travel.  They are able to live with their mothers for the entire season and that bond between the animals keeps both the kid and the doe happier and calmer.

Goat meat, unfortunately, has the reputation of being strongly flavored and gamey.  Since we process our goats at under a year old, they are very mild in flavor and very tender.  We find it to be a similar flavor to lamb and, most of the time, we can't tell the two apart on nights when we have both lamb and goat chops for dinner.
