thanks for your comments.
more of a homesteader than a farmer. But dh and I have bred, raised, butchered, prepared and eaten dairy goats for 31 years. As for farming, we do cut and bale our own hay.

I don't treat chevon any differently than beef. I participate in a goat forum and recently discussed how we butcher the carcass. 100% of us older practioners have come to the identicle procedure; we grind all the meat. I thought that was facinating that we all came to the same way of preparing the meat for the freezer. I mainly make goat burgers (there are none better), meatloaf, chili, burritoes; anything you would do with ground beef.

Doesn't it bother you to eat what you raise? I know when I killed those chickens it bothered me when they had them for dinner the next day. Everyone else enjoyed them but I saw them when we chopped the heads off. I didn't have to fool with the pigs. That must have been done without me. pigs can get pretty mean. Ripped my cousin's leg in the back from the knee to the hip when he had his back turned. What a shock but he said he was stupid to turn his back never blamed the pig. Only himself.

If only all these people who are city slickers could visit a farm and try to work along side of the farmers. Many people would have different perspective of the meal they eat.

You sound like you had healthy life, bethzaring. Hope it continues.

I went to a new Asian grocery store last week that opened close to my work. They had legs of goat (think leg of lamb, but a bit bigger). I can't remember the price, but will check next time I'm there.

Any recipe for lamb or venison will work for goat.

It's a fact of life on the farm.
