  1. We get our goat meat from Hillman Farm in Colrain - - - - local, organic, and delicious!

  2. We love the loaf meat prepared over an open flame...deliciousness beyond all. My friend bring special juice and bring flavor out to no end.

  3. Goat loaf is especially delicious when eaten with pickle.

  4. I had problem finding egg yoke so I put whole style eggs in place. good substitution.

  5. Goat loaf is what adorns our dinner table at every special occasion.

  6. We at are last family partys tried this recipe. Most did not know if they would ever had goat before, but it was loved by all. Most enjoyed with some flat breads and lemon to bring out the taste. It was so good !

  7. Are family and us try above dish as was to many surprise....very good! But I use grocirey style ketchup and think it was much too much. From now on, and make home made to be better. Thanks to you Marty.

  8. Marty' our Genius among the chefs. I canno't believe how savory this could be. Much believing to my surprises, my whole families love the dish and want to know how I made this. I feel like I should keep secrets be cause they keeps coming back to visit me when I make the loaf dish. Crowd pleaser !
