The San Clemente Island Goat was originally off the California coast, where it had become so invasive that the government started an eradication program in the late 1970s. Today, fewer than a thousand of these goats are found in small herds in the United States and Canada. In this episode I speak to Erin Link, who is raising her and helping to found the new breeders’ association.
Erin not only has a goat meat CSA, but also milks her goats and sells goat milk soap to raise awareness of the breed.
