Has anyone tried ostrich egg or ostrich meat? How is it? How much would they cost at the store?

Check with Backyardchickens.com for information on your interest in ostrich meat.

We have several ostrich farms here in Vermont and New Hampshire. I've not seen the meat in the regular grocery but it is sold in the local co-ops. Being organic, it is pricey. Very pricey. As a comparison, an organic chicken will run you well over $20 in that venue. Because of that, I've not bothered to try it. The Best of Vermont country cooking: a collection of recipes. does contain a number of recipes though if you decide to give it a go.

never tried the eggs, meat is nice.
Can't really describe the flavour, think of a chicken- or turkey-like texture with a more gamey flavour to it as a start.

Hard to get here, usually only available around Christmas time now that the ostrich fad from a few years ago has faded and most of the farms gone bust.

I met a guy who quit his good business and invested everything into the Next Big Thing: ostrich farming. He tried to get me and my boss to invest, but we didn't. He went bust.

You used to see ostrich meat around, but no more. Had some, nothing wrong with it, but chicken factories can basically squeeze a million sad chickens into a small space, pump them up and run them through some machines. Ostriches are big and take up a lot of space, pretty much have to be cage-free and free range to some extent, so the cost goes up.

over here at least ostriches replaced some pigs when farmers started getting penalised for the amount of dung they were producing.
Because of the idiocy of the law, ostrich dung wasn't included in the calculations.

When those laws were changed to be more realistic and more inclusive, that advantage disappeared and so did the evil tempered, uncontrollable, birds.
