Sapelo Farms' goat meat

About our goat meat

As with our grass-fed beef, our goats are raised on pasture, hay, and  minimal grain. We do not use hormones on our meat goats and will use  antibiotics only when necessary. Our goats are sold for meat as WHOLE  goats only. Our butcher will be happy to cut and package your goat  according to your specifications. Goat meat is sold based on hanging  weight. We estimate that our wethers (neutered male goats) to be 60-70  lbs at weaning age with a hanging weight of 25-35 lbs.

Our goats are processed at a government inspected abattoir. Please note when ordering that we must make an appointment with the abattoir to have the meat processed. This usually requires a 2-3 week lead time although sometimes it can be done faster. If you have questions, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
 

Understanding hanging weight

Our  goat meat is sold based on its "hanging weight". Hanging weight is  defined as the carcass weight minus the head, hide and entrails. The  hanging weight is approximately 50% - 60% of the live animal weight, and  therefore you are not charged any of the waste product. So, a 70lb goat  would have a hanging weight of approximately 35lbs -42lbs. After the  meat is hung to chill for 24 hours, it is then cut to your  specifications and double-wrapped to your spedifications. At this time  some of the bone is removed from the meat. Therefore, the final amount  of goat meat you receive will differ from the hanging weight. You should  expect to receive between 60-65% of the hanging weight as cut, wrapped  meat. If you have questions about the butchering process please contact  the farm.
 

Butchering choices

Our goat meat is currently available as a whole carcass, two half pieces, or cut "family style."
"Family  style" is into two hams, two racks of ribs, chops and ground goat meat.  This can be modified to include more roasts (as in our example below).
Goat can be processed into other cuts for an additional $.50 per lb.

Pricing and ordering

Our goat meat is priced at $6.25lb with a $150 deposit due at the time an order is placed.
Goat meat is available for ordering now. 

Please be aware that we must schedule processing once we have received the deposit for your goat. We will contact our abattoir as soon as possible, but generally they require a 2-3 week lead time to process goat meat.

Once your goat is slaughtered, it is cut and wrapped to your specifications and then frozen for safe transport. Generally, one goat will fill one standard sized cooler.

You may pickup your goat either at the farm in Silver Creek, GA or we are willing to deliver it for a fee.
