Twilight Tour & Tasting

The second annual Goat Twilight Tour & Tasting will be held on Thursday, July 31, from 5:30 p.m. to dark, at the University of Maryland’s Western Maryland Research & Education Center in Keedysville.

In addition to wagon tours of the goat test facility and research program, there will be an opportunity to taste recipes prepared with goat meat (chevon). The recipes will be prepared by a local chef.  Last year, the chef prepared easy-marinated goat, curry goat, Greek goat with orzo, roasted goat tacos, and goat skewers with a vinegary herb sauce.
