One of the things ClaireAnna and I do is to take our petting zoo to area events and churches. We do it for free as a community service project. This one at the Zion Lutheran Church helped raise thousands of dollars for the River Valley Christian Clinic and other organizations.

We picked up our first home grown goat meat from the butcher yesterday and tonight we had a taste test.
I made sloppy Joes with Manwich. One pot ground goat. One pot ground beef.
It took Ted 4 bites of each to decide which one he liked best. I asked him if he thought it was goat or beef. He said Goat. It was beef. But he really said he couldn’t tell. Neither Kate nor I could tell between the two.
I made patties out of each meat. Which one do you think is goat?
I grilled them on the grill. The ones on the right were simply on the hotter side of the grill. That’s the only reason they have darker marks.
So far, goat meat is a big hit in our house. There was no unusual odor at all like there is sometimes with deer. It was very tasty to all of us. For Sunday dinner, we’ll try out the roast!
