New Barn Farm is a small family run farm and the home of the ‘Dorset Goat Meat Co.’ The family have always kept animals but when they bought the farm in 2015 their passion soon became breeding and rearing Boer goats known for high quality meat production.
The Boer goat is a breed of goat that was developed in South Africa in the early 1900s for meat production. The breed produces a fantastic quality goat meat product demanded by top Chef’s throughout the world.
Whilst in the UK goat meat is still relatively niche, globally it is the most widely eaten meat. In addition, did you know that Goat meat is the leanest meat? The fat contained in goat meat is less than the fat contained in chicken, so is a great source of low fat protein for a healthy lifestyle.
The Dorset Goat Meat Co. raise their Boer goats on a small farm where they roam freely eating natural forage, containing herbs, various types of grasses and plants that are packed with vitamins and minerals.
The herd roams free range for at least 8 months of the year and is housed in the winter. This allows the meat to grow slowly and develop the best flavour possible.
Raising their goats ethically and sustainably is top priority at New Barn Farm, goats produce less methane than cows, so considering the environment is another reason to give this delicious and versatile meat a try.
Try a roasted leg, the classic goat curry and tasty burgers and sausages for BBQ season. The Dorset Goat Meat Co. Sausages are award winners at The Great Taste Awards, so we recommend adding these to your basket too!
The Dorset Goat Meat Co. have had a hugely positive response from customers and feedback has really encouraged them to grow their herd since they started selling their goat meat in 2016, so they now keep around 200 goats on the farm.
They have a closed herd with high health status and supply their own farm shop, restaurants and farmers markets as more people realise, not only the health benefits of eating goat meat, but the versatility and sustainability of this fabulous food.
Your order will be processed in their own butchery, so the meat is fully traceable as they care for their animals from field to fork.
