Buffalo and Goats

We have recently discovered how much we love buffalo meat.  It is so lean and has a great flavor.  Ground buffalo with a little onion, salt, and pepper..... topped with goat cheese.  Yum!

What a fun day we had!  We started off at Tuscarora Bison, where we met the sweetest 87 year young man.  He cheerfully answered all of my buffalo questions and shared a few stories.
I like to imagine us as a pioneer family seeing these magnificent creatures roaming the prairie.  They seemed so gentle, but I was quickly reminded that they are wild animals and are NOT affectionate to humans.
He was not a happy camper.  He is going to the butcher next week.

Next up was a visit to Wayside Goat Dairy.  We were met with many baby goats and some farm dogs who were looking for a belly rub. 

Then there was this crazy goat that looked like he was dancing.  He was actually eating pine limbs.

I can't wait to go again!

  1. Baby goats are the cutest things! I've had my fair share of goat meat- but have never tried buffalo.
