Welcome to The Gourmet Goat Farmer where the welfare of our beautiful animals are at the heart of everything we do. Our goats live a healthy, free range life here on the Marlborough Downland, grazing ancient pastures and socialising naturally as part of a herd.

Why goat produce

healthy icon

HEALTHY

An incredibly lean meat, goat is high in protein and low in saturated fat making it an ideal option for anyone following a low fat diet.

nutritional icon

NUTRITIONAL

Goat meat includes a high level of protein and is a good source of iron. Goats cheese is low in saturated fat and lactose too!

taste icon

TASTE

Mild and tender, it’s an incredibly versatile meat. Older animals cooked “on the bone” bring a slightly deeper flavour and mature males a more distinguished taste.

Our cuts

Butchery is a craft, mastered differently in every culture. If you’re unsure of what cut you want, we highly recommend you talk to us or your butcher about what recipe or dish you have in mind. We can give you advice to ensure you get the correct age of animal and the right joint, butchered in the right way, to ensure a complete culinary success! We have given here a very brief overview of the basic cuts and their versatility.

Leg

A whole joint is ideal for a roast and can also be deboned and stuffed. Oven roast at gas mark 4-5, 180-190°C, 350-375°F. For 25 minutes per 450g/lb or 30 minutes per 450g/lb for well done. Leg meat can be diced and skewered ready for the BBQ, or cut into fabulous “Chump” steaks. The lower leg called the “Shank” is best cooked slowly.

Breast

Perfect minced, it is lovely and flavoursome and can be used in both quick-to-cook and slow cooked dishes. Ideal for recipes like Goatherd pie and moussaka, or made into burgers, meatballs and koftas.

Loin

Butchered as a saddle, chop, noisette or steak, the loin is best cooked simply to appreciate its tenderness and flavours. Rest the meat for 5-10 minutes, covered on a warm plate to experience its full potential.

Shoulder

Best slow cooked in a little liquid, then covered with foil to ensure minimum moisture is lost, so the meat is moist and succulent when served.

Rack

Cooked whole as a roast or cut into 7 individual cutlets and fried, grilled or griddled, it’s considered to offer the most tender cuts called the best end of neck.

Recipes

We are big advocates of doing very little and cooking the meat very simply, in order to appreciate its true flavour. You can substitute any lamb/mutton recipe with goat/kid meat and be suitably impressed. We are always happy to discuss recipe ideas with our customers, and in fact encourage you to do so when ordering, so we can ensure you get the best cut and age of animal for your dish.
