Goats are very inquisitive creatures and love to be with other animals being a herd animal. They also like the company of people and will come to you when called as a dog would. They make great companion pals to horses and cattle and are fairly low maintenance, and will help keep your yard tidy. Their pellets make great fertiliser for gardens and vegie patches. It is a myth that goats will eat anything they see! Goats are actually preferential browsers and like to eat what takes their fancy which usually includes woody textured plants. They do not eat clothes, shoes or the like! The horse, cow and goat each compliment the other when eating their way around a paddock as they each like different things. So far I have found that ours have a favourite, that being cobblers pegs and the purple flower off the top of the scotch thistle! Therefore they help to balance out the grass/weed ratio as they eat the weeds and therefore help prevent weed dispersion. Another myth is that goats are hard to keep in. In the years I have run goats I have only once had a goat try to escape and then it was to only buddy up with another goat it came to our farm with and never jumped again. Dog mesh fencing is essential to ensure you keep your goats in and any predators out such as wild dogs, pigs and foxes.

I had the privilege of using Callemondah Farming Company's Goat meat for the Noosa Food and Wine festival. The goat I used came in whole and was beautifully dressed and presented. I found the meat had a wonderfully clean taste and smell. The meat itself was quite lean and was a hit with the discerning public at the food festival.
We had never tried goat meat before. We were amazed at the delicious taste and texture. Just like lamb only better!
Thanks for the delicious goat meat, haven't used it in cooking before but is was so tasty and tender that it won't be the last time I'll use it. look forward to experimenting with some more. Thanks Nicole

We have brought various cuts of this wonderfully grown and locally produced goat meat. We have used premium cuts in roasts and lessor cuts braised in red wine or in a West Indian curry. We have been completely satisfied on every occasion with this very tasty lean meat.

My partner has never eaten goat meat in his life, he found the taste sensational, especially in a curry! Recommend for everyone to try is a must! It's very yummy meat to eat, less fatty and more tasty than lamb is.
