Highly prized with top chefs for its tenderness and flavour, the popularity of goat meat is growing throughout the UK. Not only is goat scientifically proven to be the healthiest of red meats, but because it’s also more sustainable meat option as goats can leave the land better than they found it, since they subsist on the weeds other livestock ignore.
We rear our free range Boer and Cashmere goats at the foothills of Red Castle at the iconic Lunan Bay. Our goats thrive in their undulating beachside location nibbling on wild coastal grasses and gorse. We breed and produce well-muscled goats with high meat to bone ratio, superb meat quality and carcass configuration using ground breaking goat meat research practices. We extensively rear our pasture-fed goats under highest welfare standards and regularly invite our goat meat customers to visit our farm to see first-hand the care and attention that goes into producing our goat meat.
Our goats are slaughtered and butchered at Downfield Farm, an artisan farm based abattoir only 25 miles for our farm. When the time comes, we transport our goats in small batches to Downfield ourselves to minimise stress. Our carcasses are dry aged up to 21-days to enhance the flavour and tenderness. We also offer bespoke butchery and can supply unusual cuts and offal.
Our slow grown and pasture-fed goat meat can be enjoyed at Michelin starred restaurants throughout Scotland.
From 2020 onwards our goat meat will be sold as our new trading name, “Lunan Bay Goat Meat” and we will have new labelling associated with the rebrand of our business from Myreside Farms Produce to Lunan Bay Farm.
Goats are the masters of regenerative agriculture, who selectively browse the invasive weeds and help to increase biodiversity. They have a lower carbon footprint than many other livestock, their meat has a higher nutritional value, they eliminate non-native weeds and help recycle trace minerals back to the surface soil.
