We are a family-run operation based outside of Red Lodge, Montana, raising a herd of Montana-hardy meat, milk and fiber goats. Our goal is to help connect people to place, through regenerative ranching, humane butchering, whole-animal cooking, and of course, through sharing meals that celebrate local bounty. Goat, cabrito, chevon, or chivo is the most popular red meat consumed globally and we know why. Cooked over an open fire and coals, smoked, barbecued, or slow cooked in an oven or in the earth, traditions abound when it comes to cooking goat.
We are proud to raise our herd on diverse pastures in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains, and that their presence on the land contributes to the health of the landscape. Through rotational grazing, these animals stimulate healthy growth of plants, fertilize the soil, and promote soil microorganisms, all of which contribute to greater biodiversity, long-term drought-resistance, and resilience in the face of climate change. During the summer months, we move our herd around Carbon County offering an invasive weed management service that helps minimize the use of herbicides in our county. We love that our work also promotes awareness in our community of natural land management, as well as encouragement to connect and engage with wildlife, livestock and the natural world.
We provide seasonal butchering and cooking workshops, in addition to selling whole goats, with the option of harvesting and butchering on our ranch. We find enjoyment in helping support people in using the whole animal and learning how to process an animal themselves. We would love to share with you the many joys that goats bring!
