Now's the Time to Order That Holiday Goat from Marin Sun Farms
No self-respecting vegetarian should spend a holiday dinner gnawing on spongelike strips of Tofurky. For strict yet non-masochistic herbivores, a meatless universe populated by herb-riddled gratins, hearty casseroles, and savory pies awaits. For the rest of us, menu planning begins with a dead animal, preferably one which enjoyed a reasonably pleasant though short existence prior to slaughter. This year, pastured animal ranch Marin Sun Farms is coming at you with plenty of options. Whether you fancy a dry-aged rib roast, a fresh ham, a leg of goat, a Muscovy duck, or a heritage turkey, now is the time to order. If you don't want to do it online, you can visit Marin Sun Farms' butcher shop in Point Reyes Station, the S.F. Ferry Plaza on Saturdays, or the Marin Farmer's Market Sundays.
