Own a piece of a sustainable future
Join us today and help keep the UK goat dairy industry moving towards a more sustainable future. You can support British farming and help us to fulfil our mission of putting all of the UK dairy goats into the food chain.
Cabrito requires investment to build its own butchery and dedicated packing site to meet growing demand, improve its customer service and exploit its position in the market.
Cabrito takes goats, that would previously have been euthanised, and has them reared for meat to be sold online and wholesale.
Kid goats are a waste product of the UK dairy industry. You can't milk male goats so, in the dairy system, they have no purpose. And, with the UK having no cultural history of eating goat meat, the overwhelming majority are euthanised at birth.
Cabrito's founders believe that in a world where we must be mindful of the resources we have, its unacceptable that healthy animals are euthanised at birth instead of going into the food system.
Meet James, co-founder of Cabrito and ‘The Goatman’ in this short video
James has strived to prevent the needless waste of goats. Working with dairy farmers and using his chef contacts, James has created a market for UK goat meat, giving the animals monetary value for the farmers and selling a 'new' protein for chefs to turn into delicious plates of food. Building on this success, Cabrito now also has a growing audience of home cooks who purchase goat via our online shop.
James's award-winning debut book, Goat: Cooking and Eating (Quadrille, 2016) includes 100 recipes from himself and renowned chefs including household names Yotam Ottolenghi, Hugh Fearnely-Whittingstall, Jermey Lee & Olia Hercules.
James is International Director of Goatober, a campaign that promotes goat meat as an ethical meat and is currently writing his third cook book.
Our UK Farmers
We work directly with the UK goat dairy industry. Delamere, one of the industry leaders and supermarket brands, invested in Cabrito in 2016. All the goats we sell are reared on the farms on which they are born.
We take the husbandry seriously. All of the farms have the highest welfare standards and are independently audited to ensure those standards are maintained. Cabrito supports British farming by giving farmers a new revenue stream and in our post-Brexit world where supermarket shelves will be filled with meat that's travelled halfway around the world, this provides a home grown alternative.
Our Success So Far...
Cabrito has won multiple awards since it's inception but perhaps our greatest success is the change created in the dairy system itself. Today, the kid goats are seen as an asset, rather than a waste product.

Our Happy Customers
I've been making Jamaican curry goat all my life and this is some of the best quality goat meat I've ever used.

I’ve been wanting proper goat meat for ages but could never find it...found Cabrito...The meat was absolutely delicious!
Angela, Bristol, 2021
This was my first time ordering, the leg steaks were very flavoursome. Had a couple of the burgers and they were delicious, so meaty. Will definitely be ordering more goat in the future.
Christopher, Bath, 2020
Fabulous! Ordered autumn last year and these were [kid racks] really succulent and tender when cooked pink in the oven and served with a blackberry and rosemary gravy I made.
