Rare San Clemente Island Goats
Play • 29 min

The San Clemente Island Goat originally came from off the coast of California where they had become so invasive that the government started an eradication program in the late 1970s. Today less than a thousand of these goats are found in small herds around the US and Canada. In this episode I'm talking to Erin Link, who raises them and helped to start the new breeders association.

In addition to having a goat meat CSA, Erin also milks her goats and sells goat milk soap to raise awareness about the breed.
