Kiko Goats – New Zealand Meat Goat
It is purely by coincidence that both our goats and pigs are originally from New Zealand. We decided to raise Kiko goats for two reasons; they are great foragers and they are a high quality meat breed. We knew before starting our herd that goatscaping would be part of our focus. All goat forage however we’ve never seen any goats strip a tree like our kiko’s do.
Goat meat may seem to some as an exotic meat. However, goat is one of the largest consumed red meat internationally. This is for a good reason. Goat meat is the leanest red meat. It has fewer calories and cholesterol than chicken or turkey. It is high in B-12 good for healthy skin, stress and depression. Goat meat has higher levels of iron than beef, pork, lamb or chicken. Goats have a small environmental hoofprint.
