Those who experience goat for the first time marvel at how bright, lean, and floral it is. The shanks are an especially earthy cut, and incredibly delectable when roasted low and slow, or braised until the meat falls off the bone — and of course the bone itself provides a gorgeous depth of flavor and silkiness to soups and stews. We think the shanks are some of the most underrated cuts in the butcher’s case, and make for some of the most comforting and tasty meals imaginable.
Now in it's tenth year, No Goat Left Behind is a month-long celebration of all things goat in October — or Goatober — the natural season for goat meat. Goatober has grown into an international movement, celebrating goat meat in all it's forms.
Goat is actually the most widely consumed meat in the world — and America is slowly learning what the rest of the world already knows — that goat meat is delicious, lean, versatile, healthy, and sustainable. Goats are environmentally low-maintenance, and easy to raise.
No Goat Left Behind was the brainchild of former Heritage Radio Network Executive Director, Erin Fairbanks and renowned New York cheesemonger, Anne Saxelby. Together with Heritage Foods they launched the initiative to address the growing problem facing New England goat dairies — namely, what to do with male goats. Naturally raised goat is a seasonal meat — they are ready for market in the fall. This is why Heritage Foods has worked to change the tenth month of the year from October to #GOATOBER!
