Meat Goats for Sale

I have a selection of slaughter weight goats (50-100lbs) available for purchase by appointment only. All animals are sold by live weight. I accept cash, credit card, or venmo.

Current price is $2.95 per live pound.

You may slaughter on-site for an additional $30/head. I can also dispose of unwanted remains from slaughtering for an additional $30 per head. Delivery of live animals is available for $2.50 per loaded mile. For liability reasons I cannot assist slaughtering. I assume no liability or responsibility once the live animal is sold.

Time with Kids

Our mature female goats (nannies) partuate here in March, which is a special time that offers many magical experiences. Young goats (kids) are not only adorable, they also have no real fear for the first 2-3 weeks and are very curious about everything, including humans. They will actively approach you, try to play with you, and will often be comfortable with being held, even falling asleep. Additionally, with any luck, you may get to see a live birth, feed a bottle kid, and learn about animal husbandry.

I offer "Time with Kids" appointments from March 1st - 31st every year. These are offered in 1 hour blocks with a maximum of 6 people at one time. The charge is $10 per person, per hour. I require a 50% non-refundable deposit to book your time. The additional 50% will be required upon arrival.

Timeslots are VERY limited!

Educational Opportunities

For city folk

If you or your kids want to see what a commerical meat animal production system looks like, learn the details of how your food is produced, how grazing lands are managed, I'd be excited to host you for a tour.

For fellow agriculture folk

Olive Branch Goats was first established in 1996 when I (John Wallace) got my first goat as a 4-H project, and within a few years I had a commercial meat goat herd. I come from a multi-generational farming and ranching background with a special emphasis on small ruminants (sheep and goats). I don't know everything, but I do have more experience than most and am happy to share what I have found that works and doesn't work.

I have an overall low-input philosophy. These animals work for me, I don't work for them. Expect a special emphasis on pasture and grazing management, pragmatic consequentialism, experimentation and learning, utilizing row-crop residue over winter, hollistic parasite management, and performance testing dams.
