South African Boer Bok

Autumn Olive Farms is a family based operation in Augusta County. We have a dual focus model with a singular commitment to the health and wellness of the land, animal and the consumer. We raise the beautiful South African Boer Bok as an environmentally sound method to combat the invasive plant species problem while producing one of the finest and healthiest meats in the world right here in the Shenandoah Valley. The combination of the worlds premier, purpose bred and standardized meat goat with the fantastic forage base of invasive species here in the Valley provides a win-win situation for the land, its owner and the consumer.

Some VERY exciting news.....

We are so excited that our Boer Bok goat meat will be on the menu at the James Beard House in New York City on February 8th!  Chef Melissa Close Hart from Palladio Restaurant at Barboursville Vineyard will be preparing an Elegant Vineyard Getaway dinner and we are one of three entrees...  

"Braised Boer Bok Goat with Buckwheat Polenta, Orange-Glazed Turnips, and Micro-Turnip Green Salad
Barboursville Vineyards Cabernet Franc Reserve 2008"

We are honored to have our Boer Bok goat meat featured at the James Beard Foundation.  This is an event where the foundation invites chefs to the James Beard House to prepare a special meal that allows people "to experience America's dynamic cuisine first hand."  We will be updating the blog with more information about this event. It is our hope that after 6 years of dedicated efforts,  Autumn Olive Farms Boer Bok will make it into the finest restaurants in the country. We might be a bit biased, but we do believe it has a rightful place at the table.
