You know, living in an area of California where the population is about 75% Lantino and Pilipino, you'd think it would be easy for me to find goat, but it's next to impossible unless I want to drive 20 miles into the bowels of the barrio.

Haven't been able to find goat since moving back to SA. Botswana has many, you could catch one in the street if you wanted too lol!
Wonder what they did with all the goats here, maybe they ate them!

Goat is said here to be one of the fastest growing demands for meat. Here in South Texas, of course, you can pick up goat, butchered or on the hoof, pretty much all over, including Mexican oriented groceries and halal meat markets. And cabrito is featured several ways in plenty of Mexican and Indian restaurants. Around holidays, if you keep goats, you need to move them away from fences along roadways, or they will "escape" to someone's family barbecue. And robust, Spanish goat crossbred boer goats are pretty self-sufficient and trouble-free and thrive on the weeds they prefer over grass. Young common boers and crosses $50. That's about $2/pound carcass meat. Older common females $150. I'm adding four and a billy (he'll be upwind during the summer) this winter for weed control, since the four sheep won't touch most weeds.

I love goat, one of my favourite meats. We payed about $2.50 per kilo of meat. They say that many butchers in SA sell goat as lamb. SA doesn't have a big enough supply of lamb to meet the demands. I'd rather buy goat and pay very little for it than buy lamb at high cost and it ends up being goat!

It's very nice, you could ask. Some butchers stock it :)

We have a lot of Mom and Pop butcher shops in this area. They all have signs in the windows for goat or halal. They do a big busiiness.

I cook it from time to time. I do mine in a crockpot with onions and enchilada sauce. I have a ethnic grocery store pretty close and is half asian and half mexican foods. I think I will try a new liquid next time I cook it for a change.
