Mike and Kim Howell of Little Island Farm recently welcomed four new additions to their Boer goat herd. Born just after Thanksgiving, these four new “kids” are full of spunk and personality. Pictured here are two full blood registered bucklings with daughters Ailea and Lynnea. These two are currently being bottle-fed.
The Howells are raising percentage, purebred and full blood Boer goats, a breed known for quality meat production and breeding stock.
Did you know that goat meat (chevon) is the most highly consumed meat in the world? In fact 80% of the world’s population eats goat meat. Offering less calories and fat than other types of red meat, chevon is both flavorful and healthy. Supplying the growing U.S. demand for goat meat is an emerging business opportunity that Mike and Kim plan to capitalize on.
