This course is designed for people who want to know more about rearing Goats for meat – regardless of your scale. We are currently the largest producer of Free Range Dairy Billy Kids in the UK and you will have the opportunity to explore our farm and learn how and why we rear our Billies. Time will be split between discussing the business considerations and opportunities of running a Kid/Goat Meat enterprise along with the practical farming decisions and practices.
There is growing interest in the fate of the Dairy Billy Kid and more people are embracing Kid goat meat as a healthy, sustainable addition to our current meat repertoire. It is estimated that there are in the region of 30,000 billy kids born into the dairy sector each year and it’s about time we gave them a little more thought and stop the waste. In recent years Kid Meat has been embraced in kitchens from Michelin Starred restaurants to home kitchens up and down the country.
The course will start at 9am with refreshments and will be rounded off with a lunch when you try Kid Meat for yourself! You will be given a print-out summarising the areas covered in the course to take home.
Cost £95 per person (incl. VAT)
