Local Hook-Up: "Get your goat" right here | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Local Hook-Up: "Get your goat" right here

The places to go when looking for the perfect goat and/or goat products.



We've got our own goat hook up around here through Sand Lily Goat Farm. The farm is located just south of town and owned by Patricia Moore and her partner Cheryl Powers, who named the farm after the sand lilies that pop out of the ground each spring on their 80-acre property.

The two women built the farm from the ground up and now have somewhere between 100 and 200 goats on their at any time. Moore has written a cookbook, too, called “Getting Your Goat the Gourmet Guide.” You can meet her at the June Meet Your Farmer dinner. See our little sider about it on this page.

Sand Lily produces goat ravioli, bratwurst, breakfast sausage, loin chops, ribs, osso bucco, shanks, stew meat and ground goat.

The farm now provides goat meat to Bend restaurants including Chow and Local Slice, which is Chow’s new pizza venture in the Brookswood Meadow Plaza. You can get an almost all-goat slice there with Sand Lily goat meat and local goat cheese.

Sand Lily sets up shop on Wednesdays at the downtown Farmers Market and on Saturdays at Northwest Crossing. The meat is also available at Melvin’s in Sisters, Newport Market, Primal Cuts on Galveston Avenue, Agricultural Connections or Central Oregon Locavore.
