Goat Eaters Brotherhood!

bellegarde-en-marche coat of armsAt Bellegarde-en-Marche (23 Creuse(Nouvelle Aquitaine) the locals are so keen on goat that a Confrerie (or brotherhood) of Goat Meat Eaters (la confrérie des mangeurs de chèvres) has been established  to celebrate the local delicacy. However it is thought that the tradition goes back more to the use of sharpened goat horn to fight off the perfidious English than the animal’s meat.

The Confrerie celebrates annually on the last Saturday in November 30 November 2019  with a parade of goats through the village and a banquet based on goat meat! The village  lies in a very rural part of France between Clermont Ferrand (50 miles)  and Limoges  (60 miles).
