Recently on our blog we’ve written about the power of browsing and land clearing through small ruminant animals. Meanwhile, grassfed goat has been out of stock in our online store for a while. We’ve been able to enjoy having our goats on the farm, but haven’t been able to share their goodness with you. Today we’re excited to have grassfed goat back in stock for our online shoppers, and to share Chef Reid’s delicious lemon herb goat meatball recipe!
Goat is the most widely consumed meat in the world, but we have less experience eating it here in the U.S. The tender, flavorful protein tastes similar to beef, but is a bit sweeter and slightly earthy. A great way to introduce goat to people for the first time is by making familiar foods like meatballs. This recipe is very easy to make, and takes just 15 minutes. Give our grassfed goat a try and let us know what you think!
