Jane Keolker owns Quail Ridge Ranch and she’s at the South Perry Farmers’ Market together with her friend Hannah Kirk, of Harvey Creek Goats. The two both bring baked goods - Keolker a variety of gluten free breads and cookies, and Kirk brings pies, cookies and pastries. And they both bring goat meat. Yes, goat meat.
“It’s leaner than skinless chicken breast and I just wish more people would give it a shot,” saidd Keolker. “I make kebobs from it, I marinate it and as long as you cook it slowly you are fine.” The meat comes from a South African goat breed, the Boer. “It’s like a very lean red meat,” said Keolker. “It’s easy to use it instead of hamburger in breakfast sausage and chili.” If you pick some up, the friends will make sure you also get a handful of recipes to get you started. You can also find the two at the Liberty Lake Farmers Market on Saturdays.
