Goat meat, also called chevon or cabrito, is a tender, mild-flavored red meat. Compared to other red meats, it has lower saturated fatty acids and cholesterol. Also, due to its different molecular structure, goat meat is more easily digested than other red meats. Goat provides a high quality protein source with a dose of healthy fats (increased unsaturated fat to saturated fat ratio). Goat meat contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is helpful in preventing cancer cells and inflammation. It also contains many vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins helpful in burning fat and boosting your mood. Because goats are browsers, they are a great companion species to grazing species like cattle, sheep and horses. Goats enjoy eating the weeds and brush that other species avoid, making them great pasture and brush management tools and a natural upcycler.
KuneKune Pigs & Pasture Pork
KuneKune pigs are a slow growing lard type pig breed that originated in New Zealand. KuneKunes are grazing pigs and known for their docile temperaments and suitability to pasture raising. They produce a flavorful, rich, well-marbled red pork. Our KuneKunes are raised and finished on pasture, with their primary diets consisting of grasses and weeds during the summer, and quality hay and pellets during our snowy winters. While performing deliciously as a meat pig, KuneKunes' docile temperaments and unique personalities make them great pets as well.
Boer goats are a large meat breed of goat developed in South Africa in the early 1900s. They were imported to the United States in 1993. Boer goats typically have a white body with a brown or "red" head, although they now come in paint, dappled and solid red or black coloring. Boers have excellent carcass qualities, rapid growth rates, and high adaptability to various environments. We strive to promote breed characteristics and ideals in our animals. Functionality is of the upmost importance in our program. We strive to improve our herds genetics each year to produce animals capable of performing in the show ring and in the pasture.
