FAQ

Goat meat and other products

Yes, we do. However, it is only offered through our Farm Club, which is our subscription program.

We offer a "whole goat," whichis a box of meat, which includes all the standard cuts of a goat.

Enrollment for Farm Club, which is a subscription box, only happens once a year in the end of March.

Yes, all of our meat is cut and packaged by a USDA butcher who flash freezes it for optimal freshness. We are unable to ship fresh, unfrozen meat, since the safest way to deliver meat is frozen. By shipping frozen meat with dry ice or ice packs, this ensures your meat stays cold throughout the shipping time

At this time we do not offer any Hala goat meat.

We recognize the need for more Hala options and may consider adding it to our offerings in the future.

However, due to a number of logistical factor, including our farm size, distribution system of selling by the cut and online, and existing customer base we aren't in a position to offer this yet.

Additionally, we would need to collaborate with our USDA inspected processor (butcher) to coordinate the religious exemption process to allow for the appropriate practices for harvest. This would also include making sure the facility has enough Halal animals to process on those days, and the processes in place to ensure meat is handled in the correct manner, including being separated from other meat handled in the facility.

Due to insurance, legal, and food safety reasons, we are unable to do on-farm harvests of goats.

No, we do not sell whole goats live for the purpose of eating. All of our goat meat is sold by the cut or in bundles.

We currently do not sell goat trotters or trotter bones. It is something we may consider offering in the future.

We do sell a variety of organ meat options, if you're looking for raw feeding options for your pets.

No we do not sell goat milk or products. Our goats are sold for meat.

If you live in Western Wisconsin, goat milk is often available in the dairy case at Walmart.

If you're interested in purchasing goat milk direct from a farm.

If you're in the area/region you could try Tracy at Old Fashioned Traditions in Bruno, Minn. She does farm pick up, pick up groups/drop sites in the Twin Cities and other locations.

She's the closest I know who sells goat milk and cheese.

We do sell a variety of organ meat options, if you're looking for raw feeding options for your pets. Goat tongue and hearts make for great "treats" due to their snack size.

Additionally, the cuts of meat we offer for human consumption, are also available to order. Ground goat is often an option some pet owners consider along with organ meat.

Ordering and shipping

We primarily ship through UPS. In some instances we will ship orders through FedEx.

Orders are packaged in an insulated box with a high insulation value. Next, the box is packed with dry ice and/or ice packs depending on the time of year, weather and transit time frame.

All orders are packed to withstand at least a three-day shipping timeframe, even though our orders will ship for a 1-2 day period.

Some thawing is acceptable, as long as the meat is cool to the touch. In most cases the meat will still be frozen.

Most of our farm orders go out through home delivery (aka shipping with a partner like UPS). However, we do offer the option for order pick up for local customers.

This option is typically offer 1-2 times a month. You'll find the upcoming pick up dates on the header of the website.

When you place your order select on farm pick up. Your email confirmation will include a link to schedule/select your pick up date/time.

Farming practices

Yes our goats are raised on pasture all summer long. This includes what you might think of as traditional pastures, but we also graze our goats on our hayfields and grass/brush mix in the woods on our farm.

We do not feed any growth hormes.

While we love sharing our farm, the reality is that we are a small, working family farm.

Our schedule is full with the day-to-day farm tasks and projects, as well as working on the retail side of the business. Outside of the "farm," we have a young family and our kids have a variety of activities that demand our time in the "off-hours," although the farm is always "working!"

Due to this fact, while we do offer occasional farm tours, more often than not we are simply busy running the farm.

This is why we share a lot about our farm online through our website, Family and Friends email community, and on social media. We want to share what it's like behind the scenes of our farm and let you get a chance to know us as farmers.

When we do offer farm tours or pasture walks, we do share it with our Friends and Family community (email list), which you can sign up for here.

I'm always love hearing about others who are interested in raising goats, especially when it comes to grazing them or even marketing the meat direct to consumer.

Over the years I've had so many inquires related to this I can't even count. That's why I created my farming blog called grazingwithleslie.com, which has many (free and paid) articles, resources, tools and courses/workshops.
