      You too can raise meat goats. Small and artisanal farmers looking for a profitable specialty will find that compact, friendly and efficient meat goats don't require large amounts of browsing land, and they can thrive on plants that other livestock find inedible, such as nettles and thistles.

      Demand for chevon has increased in the last years, and imports from overseas have doubled in the past decade. The market is expected to grow by 10 to 15 percent annually in the future. Goat meat is the fastest-growing meat business in North America. Chevon is a low-calorie, low-fat meat.

      In this book, author Maggie Sayer will guide you through the basics of breed selection, buying, housing, feeding and breeding goats for meat.

      Storey's Guide to Raising Meat Goats is a great resource for experienced and beginner farmers.

      About the Author:

      Maggie Sayer has written numerous articles on animal raising and husbandry and is actively involved in canine and equine rescue. Her Boer goats share the farm with dozens of rescued animals. Sayer and her husband live in Mammoth Springs, in the Ozark region of Arkansas, where goat production has taken sustainable agriculture by storm.

      The Salatin family farm, known as Polyface and located in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, is one of the nation's premier ecological farms and has been featured in countless print, radio and video media. Exemplifying local food systems and imbedded community-based agriculture, the farm caught the attention of Michael Pollan in his runaway New York Times best-seller The Omnivore's Dilemma (when Salatin refused to ship T-bone steaks to New York).

      Behind the glitz, however, the farm struggles with a labyrinth of government regulations and cultural perceptions that terrorize the antidote to mad cows, avian influenza, and food fears. The solution is simple: allow freedom for traditional food growing and purchasing choices.

      This book brings to life, with humor and verve, the everyday conflict between the entrenched industrial food system and the local artisanal neighbor-friendly farmer-entrepreneur.

      Joel Salatin is also the author of: Pastured Poultry Profit$, Salad Bar Beef, You Can Farm, Family Friendly Farming, Holy Cows and Hog Heaven.
