Friends of Goatober

Goatober is building momentum around the world with more and more people joining the herd.

Goatober spreads the word that goat meat is delicious, ethical and sustainable.

Goatober originated in New York in 2011 and has grown in eight years to have events and participants all around the world, from London to Melbourne, from Amsterdam to Trinidad and Tobago.

What started as a small campaign to prolong the lives of billy goats and to put a delicious, ethical meat on the menu has grown into an international campaign bringing together dairies, farmers, NGOs and individuals who are passionate about ending food waste in the goat dairy system.

Goatober shows what can happen when dairies, suppliers and chefs work together to try and solve the food waste issue in this small corner of the food system.

Goatober bridges the knowledge gap between dairy and meat and was originally started by a cheesemonger in New York. Goat dairy is a vibrant industry around the world with ethically-minded and forward thinking dairies working hard to change the prognosis of the male goats born into it.
