The Karystos goat is bred in the Karystos province in the southern part of Evia Island. In recent years pure herds have retreated to the north and east of Karystos, in the remote region of Cavodoro, which is now the breed’s stronghold
It is a relatively small-sized goat displaying great homogeneity in its colour pattern and phenotypic characteristics.
The breed is classified as ‘Not at Risk’ (2019).
