As an alternative to beef or lamb, goat leg simply cannot be beat — goat is a savory, lean, red meat with a clean, herbaceous finish – it is bright and floral with an unexpected depth of robust flavor. The leg of goat provides a formidable centerpiece worthy of King Arthur, but down-to-earth enough for a family holiday, or simply a special sandwich.
Truly one of the most luscious cuts, goat ribs are a full-flavored experience, moist, and boasting layers of silky fat. We think they are best prepared low and slow on the grill, for a genuinely sensational barbecue treat or roasted in the oven.
Goatober has come a long way since the great cheesemonger Anne Saxelby came up with the idea 12 years ago!
October is the natural season for goat meat, and as we have for over a decade, we are proud to feature delicious cuts of goat as part of our effort to communicate just how delicious goat meat is. Despite being lean, the meat is rich and flavorful and boasts light floral notes in every bite. Because goat meat has less fat, it lends itself to slow and low cooking including braises and barbecue — see our Cooking Tab for more information!
We are proud to expand Goatober to be a celebration of all things goat, and this year we have added delicious GOAT CARAMELS in a gift box from Big Picture Farm in Townshend, Vermont and GOAT CHEESE from Blakesville Creamery in Port Washington, Wisconsin. Add these to your order from the pull down menu above and turn your October meals into goat loving extravaganzas. Can’t decide which cut to buy?

Goatober was launched because dairies need to produce milk to make cheese, and the only way for an animal to make milk is to have babies. On goat dairies, whenever a male is born, unless it’s kept as a breeder, there is not much use for it since males do not produce milk and the market for male goats is not a large one in the United States. Some male babies are sold onto the commodity market to lead unhappy lives in confinement while others are euthanized. We wanted to launch a project to keep all the kids on the farm, roaming the pastures, while also providing an additional source of income to the farmers. The natural mating cycle of goats is to be born in the spring and be ready for processing in the fall — that is why we call the project Goatober although it has gone by other names too like No Kid Left Behind! Since 2010 Goatober has grown to become a celebration of all things goat, the most widely consumed protein on the planet!
