Some might ask Why Eat Goat Meat? Explore the referenced webpage for more information on how goat meat supports a health-crazed nation. Interestingly, a University of Florida blind study of 600 U.S. consumers (using barbequed meat) determined that the "overall appeal" rating was that about 42% of tasters preferred the goat meat, while 38% preferred beef, and 20% could not tell much difference (Elk USA).
The goat meat we sell is either cabrito or chevon, weanling kid goats 3 - 4 months old (< than 60 lbs) or yearling kid goats 6 - 12 months old (> than 60 lbs), respectively. The goat meat is dry-aged for 5 - 7 days, processed, packaged, vacuum-sealed and frozen by Herring Brothers for freshness.
