Goat Meat Rising in Popularity

What began with a couple goats has morphed into a one-of-a-kind farmstead culinary experience for one family in Malone WI. Larry Hedrich’s initial focus on growing the dairy goat milk industry has expanded and now led him to provide the highest quality goat kid meat for consumers and restaurants. Today, his business Calanna Specialty Meats continues to set the standard in quality goat meat.

“Our mission is to provide the market with premium-quality goat meat while ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare,” said Hedrich. “We prioritize long-term sustainability, partnering with veterinarians and nutritionists to guarantee the optimal health and well-being of our animals.”

 The enterprise boasts a state-of-the-art nursery equipped with automatic feeders operational 24/7, guaranteeing optimal nutrition for the animals.

The market demand for goat meat has seen a notable increase, extending beyond traditional ethnic preferences. “Contrary to initial assumptions, goat meat appeals to a broad range of consumers seeking a healthy protein source,” says Hedrich. “According to USDA data, goat meat is recognized for its superior nutritional profile, making it an ideal choice for health-conscious individuals and families.”
