    We are wanting to get some goats for milk and maybe meat.
    We have had milk but not fresh goats meat.
    Does anyone know of a place in Arizona that I could get goat meat for us to try?
    Its funny, I have had everything else( sheep, antilope, deer, elk,...) but not goat, I dont think anyway.
    Thanks
    Rick

    Rick, where are you located? We have dairy goats and some folks butcher their own for meat. Email me at hsnrs@localnet.com and we might be able to find some for you. We are in southeast AZ.

    Some people say it tastes like deer.

    I think it tastes half way between deer & beef. It's got the texture of deer, but tastes more like beef.

    if you like deer & elk you'll be happy w/ goat (unless it's from a really nasty old billy).
