We have kept goats now for almost 20 years. for most of that time these have been pedigree Anglo Nubians, which are dairy goats. Gaynor has made soaps and moisturizers, and lotions, and sometimes kefir, with the odd batch of mozzarella thrown in! We occasionally have pedigree registered Nubian youngstock for sale, for breeding or pets.
However in 2018 we started to build a pedigree Boer goat herd, which are kept for their meat. Goat meat is massively underused in the UK. It is very healthy, being low calorie compared to beef and chicken, low fat and low cholesterol.
We are very passionate about how our animals are cared for, and are respectful of how we produce. Our goats are maintained with high health status (CAE, Johnes and CLA) and required vaccinations, in family groups. Their housing is purpose built for them, with their needs in mind not intensive production.
We have researched a variety of products to ensure that as far as possible the whole animal is used to make artisan products for the health conscious individual, all handmade by us.
This ranges from the beautiful organically tanned goat skin throws, handmade soap made from home rendered goat fat and our own goats milk, to be very gentle and moisturizing on your skin, hugely beneficial bone broth, fantastic for recuperation after illness, for humans and pets, or for arthritis and other joint pain.
We also make very lean, gluten free, pure meat burgers, koftas, sausage, breakfast sausage and goat biltong, all with no additives or fillers at all, just lovely herbs and spices, and minimal salt.
Our meat products are made in small batches, and are available to preorder as they sell out very quickly. Once they're gone they're gone!!
