You, too, can raise meat goats. Small and artisanal farmers looking for a profitable specialty will find that compact, friendly and efficient meat goats don't require large amounts of browsing land, and they can thrive on plants that other livestock find inedible, such as nettles and thistles.

Demand for chevon has increased in the last few years, and imports from overseas have doubled in the past decade. The market is expected to grow by 10 to 15 percent annually in the future. Goat meat is the fastest-growing meat business in North America. Chevon is low-calorie, low-fat meat.

In this book, author Maggie Sayer will guide you through the basics of breed selection, buying, housing, feeding, and breeding goats for meat.

Storey's Guide to Raising Meat Goats is a great resource for experienced and beginner farmers.
