Delicious goat and lamb meats offer many health benefits. There is nothing more satisfying to know that you can provide your family nutrient rich meals and not sacrifice taste.

Lamb
​According to the American Lamb Board, on average, a 3-ounce serving of lamb has only 175 calories and meets the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) definition for lean.  According to FDA guidelines, lean meat has less than 10 grams of fat, less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat, and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol per 100 grams (or 3.5 ounces).

As the chart below indicates, 3 ounces of lamb can easily fit within the daily fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol recommendations of the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Average Value for 3 ounces Cooked Portion of Lamb

Goat
​Goat meat is naturally lean, meaning that it is low in saturated fats. It is high in HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and low in LDL (bad cholesterol).

According to the National Kiko Registry, a 3-ounce serving of goat has only 122 calories and meets the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) definition for lean.

As the chart below indicates, 3 ounces of goat can easily fit within the daily fat, saturated fat and cholesterol recommendations of the 205 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Preparing Lamb and Goat

Preparation of  a fabulous lamb or goat dinner can be just as satisfying as the meal itself. Bring family and friends together to grill chops in the backyard, serve burgers for a picnic, or prepare a candle light dinner with a delicious roast.

Healthier Cheese Options

Fresh, delicious goat and sheep cheese can be a healthier cheese option for your family.

 

  • Compared to cow's milk products such as cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol.

  • Provides more calcium than cream cheese.

  • Even though goat cheese has fewer calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.

  • Sheep milk has nearly twice the fat as cow or goat milk. However, the fats in sheep milk are primarily monounsaturated and polyunsaturated which have virtually no effect on cholesterol.

  • Plus the fat in sheep milk is made up of short and medium chain fatty acids, making them easier for the human body to digest and eliminate. People who are lactose intolerant can usually enjoy sheep milk products even if they have trouble with cow or goat milk products.

  • Sheep milk has more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than the milk from goats, cattle, and humans. CLA is a cancer-fighting, fat-reducing fat.

Fresh, delicious goat and lamb products are closer than you think!

It is very likely that you can find local goat and lamb products right at your farmers' market or purchase directly from a producer!

These goats are our 12 yr old daughter’s passion. She loves and cares for them with guidance from her parents. Please support her business. Feel free to ask questions about our goat family. Nigerians make great dairy goats due to high butterfat content. They can be used for meat as well. Not to mention they make great pets.

What was once a small sheep operation has now grown to over 110 Polypay ewes and counting with a value-added meat and wool business. Lambs are raised and grown on the farm and processed throughout the year to provide fresh locally raised lamb. Matt is an excellent cook and people are always asking for his advice on cooking lamb, so he started making his spice blends to sell and they have become a customer favorite. The Chadwicks attend many farmers markets to sell their products, in addition to selling online and through farm pick-ups. Contact them online, by email, or by phone and try something different for dinner!

We are located in Laurel County, KY. Retired from the Navy we moved to Kentucky, the most beautiful state in the country, to live our dream of farming. Just like cultural heritage and roots are important to us, so is the welfare, and lives, of the animals we raise. Our chickens, guinea, pigs, goats, and sheep are all free range, pecking and rooting through 100 acres of lush forest trees. Most of their diet comes from fresh grasses, acorns, hickory nuts, black walnuts, berries, and wild apples. Along with our farm animals, we have 10 dogs (mostly rescues) 2 Cats, and 5 grown kids. Life can be crazy, hectic, funny, and wild on a farm, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
