Our goats are predominantly rangeland goats, which are characteristically lean and tasty.

Goat Cooking Tips
IT’S LEAN, DON’T OVER COOK IT
As a lean meat, open range goat can dry out quickly at high heat, stripping it of flavour and tenderness. Turn down the heat and cook it more slowly to lock in flavour and ensure a smooth, tender finish for the meat.
DON’T COOK COLD
Bring the meat to room temperature before cooking it.
OIL THE MEAT NOT THE PAN
When grilling, barbecuing or pan-frying steaks, first brush each side of the meat with a little
oil, before searing for one minute each side per cm thickness and then cook to medium rare.
SLOW ROASTS, LONG SIMMERS AND A DAY IN THE CROCKPOT
Goat meat is more tender and flavourful if it is cooked slowly. Rushing to whip up a meal will leave you with a tougher end product, and it also increases the chances that you’ll dry out the meat.
After cooking, let your goat rest, covered. Steaks should rest two to five minutes, while a roast should rest about fifteen minutes before serving.
