Our friends at Eggcettera Farm have been busy working on a new product, exclusive to Meat at Billy’s … free range Box Gum Goat meat.
Whole goats are delivered fresh weekly (by Farmer Tim himself) from his farm at Allora to Meat at Billy’s, where our butchers create a number of different cuts. These include bone-in shoulder, leg, dice, mince and even sausages, just to name a few. Be sure to try our goat and spiced rum sausages … delish!
Farmer Tim explains that goats are foragers not grazers are mostly interested in what’s above them to eat rather than underneath them. There is an abundance of box gums on the farm and apparently the goats love munching on gum leaves to help aid their digestion! No Kidding 🙂
Goat meat typically works well with lower heat and slow cooking or braising. This gives the meat time to break down and tenderise whilst preserving it’s moisture. It’s particularly good in stews, curries and roasts.
Located at Allora, the mission at Eggcettera is to grow and market quality free range farm produce in an ethically sustainable manner for livestock and land involved. That’s why Meat at Billy’s is proud to work with Farmer Tim! Not only does Eggcettera supply goat meat, sell their pecan fed pastured pork, free range lamb and amazing eggs. Keep on eye on other new Eggcettera product lines heading our way soon!
