Welcome to The Goat Company - Northumberland
The Goat Company is a 80+ strong herd of boer goats bred primarily for meat production which is sold directly to the general public, restaurants, butchers, and food outlets in either half carcass or full carcass, and various cuts to suit your needs.
Orders being taken for goat or kid meat -now the nights are drawing in, what about diced on/off the bone to slow cook -see latest news!!
The goats are reared on the award winning Lakewood Stud in Northumberland by proprietors June and Martin Whiting. All the stock on the farm are CAE accredited by SACS, tested for Johnnes, and health planning is carried out in conjunction with our vets.
The Goat Company has gained much interest from Michelin Star rated restaurants in Newcastle and London who are interested in the quality, leanness and healthier option of the meat.
The rest of the herd was started on site and we still have the original dairy goats which began the whole enterprise.
Goat meat (chevon) is becoming increasingly popular in this country as it is a tender meat, similar to lamb or beef but slightly more gamey. It is low in cholesterol and saturated fat, high in iron and B vitamins, and healthier than chicken.
It is said to make up 80% of the meat consumed in the world. Recently it has enjoyed a high media profile, both on the radio and television.
The Goat Company boer herd was started with Janus Rum - known as Ron - who was bought from Tiff and Judith Hall in Norfolk.
For ordering please see our latest news or telephone/e-mail - we now sell to trade and the general public!
