Serving Up Goat Meat at the Fall Festival

It's dinner time at the Fall Festival on Franklin St. Thousands are hopping between vendors trying the usual and the unusual fare.

Some of the things are also made from stuff you rarely think could be turned into burgers. Eyewitness News found one booth where they serve items made from goat meat. It's done by a group from Joshua Academy.

It's the second year they've served loose goat meat sandwiches and a "Sloppy Billie" their version of the Sloppy Joe. They raise goats out on an organic farm here in the Tri-State.

Volunteers say they've gotten all kinds of reactions.

"It's a mix," said Amber Rascoe of Joshua Academy. "Some people are like, 'Oh, I haven't had that before,' and some are like, 'Oh, no, no, no.' You can kind of get a mix. People are always willing to try them. So, that's good."

Volunteers add goat meat is pretty common in other parts of the world even though you don't see it on many American menus. Oddly enough, they sold out of their loose goat meat sandwiches earlier today.
