Those who experience goat for the first time marvel at how bright, lean, and floral it is. Ground goat is simply one of the most versatile and tasty treats in the meat world, prepared as burgers, meatballs, or as a rustic ragu for pasta, not to mention the main ingredient in the best chili we have ever tasted. As an alternative to beef or lamb, it simply cannot be beat — goat is a savory, lean, red meat with a clean, herbaceous finish, and an unexpected depth of flavor.
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!
