Fresh Goat; Where to buy in L.A.?
A friend of mine is going to make Birria for me. Where can we find a good butcher in L.A. that has fresh goat meat?
There is farm/slaughterhouse in the Sierra Hwy., the area right between Santa Clarita and Palmdale, that my parents use to take us kids to pick out a goat from the farm; then we would watch them slaughter, clean and fabricate it. It was a truly fascinating experience for an 8 year old.
I wouldn't even know how to find out if the farm is still there...but what could be better than birria made from a goat that was just moseying along earlier in the day?
I know a place in Norwalk that has same-day slaughtered goat and lamb meat all the time. It's right off the Imperial exit where the 605 and 105 meet. I happen to know their phone number (562) 868-2272. They have the fresh goat brain and liver too. The best part is you don't have to buy the whole goat--this place sells by the pound.
