Lol. Yeah, but from everything I've read they are far more prone to disease and problems? I dunno, that is just what I've read. I am, however, getting some Muscovies soon....reminds me I gotta email that lady...

You know what's funny? I JUST found a place that is less than 5 minutes from me, the guy raises goat for sale. Goat, Lamb and Highbush Blueberries (the reason I found them in the first place).

Whew. I went over to this Jamaican dude's house for a party last year, and he was serving goat stew from a recently-slaughtered goat of his.

Now, I'm a fan of "gamey" meat. I hunt deer and have a freezer full of venison. So don't mistake me for a tasteless Outback Steakhouse rube when I say that it was just about as gamey as gamey gets. I couldn't eat it. Maybe it was just that particular goat, but he said that it was spot-on, so...who knows, maybe it's an acquired taste, but not for me.

If you get a male, they have the wonderful habit of pissing on themselves and everything around them. That makes the meat absurdly strong. However, some breeds are far stronger than others in terms of flavor to begin with (I was reading about this as I have future plans for meat goats). At any rate, the distinct flavor is stronger than just about any meat I've ever had. It is certainly an 'aquired' taste imo. You find the same thing with Goat's milk cheeses, btw. I had one small wrinkly little sucker from France (can't recall the name atm) but that thing tastes like GOAT. There are also some that you would be hard pressed to tell it was Goat's milk cheese. It seems that the characteristic is from the type of goat and especially if they are around males.

Love goat! Can't get it here commercially, even though many people raise them. I've thought about getting a few. Goats are really fond of blackberry canes and I've got acres of them.

Good to know. I have the same thing, tons of canes. Actually I was thinking of weed wacking (if it'll stand up to them) paths through them 'cause I can only pick the edges anyways. Just collected about 2 lb of the 'black caps..aka black raspberry' yesterday...the other type (long conical ones) mature late July and into August. I have acres of them too and know Goats can be pretty good to help land management, but I wasn't aware of them having an affinity to the canes. I just gotta get to fencing in the moutain so I can keep them....ugh.
