Invasive weed control

The chemical free, natural way!

HIKE WITH THE GOATS

The goats are normally out eating invasive plants from May to November. But from November to May, they are at home snuggling up in their Barn. But they tend to get bored and don't get out to stretch their goaty legs. We all tend to lay low in the Winter months. Hiking with goats is a great way to get out and exercise with a Goat Buddy.

If you're wondering about the procedure, we'll start by coming up to your property to do your estimate and to ensure that there's no plants that are toxic for the goats. After we'll bring the goats out to your property, and we set them up within electric fencing.  The goats stay eating at your property for however long is necessary to get your desired job done, and we'll come periodically to check in and make sure all is going smoothly.

Questions?

Where do we service?

Since we're based in Lunenburg, we service almost everywhere in Worcester county. We service just about anywhere that's within an hour from Lunenburg.

How much is the cost?

The minimum cost of any job is $675 which covers 300 feet of fence. If you message us your address and a rough measurement of the area you want serviced, we can send you a quick rough estimate to see if it's within your range.

How long do the goats stay?

There is no time limit, the goats stay as long as they're needed to get the job done. They have no schedule.

What about predators?

The goats do stay overnight, and sometimes they tend to eat more at night. If a predator were to approach them, it's all about numbers. One stray coyote against a larger number of goats is not a threat, especially with the fence. The male goats will band together and stomp the fence as if they are a row of linebackers. The coyote will be shocked and will decide it's too much of a challenge, and will just leave. We wouldn't do this if predators were a concern, our goats are our pets and we make sure they're safe at all times.

What will my yard look like after the goats finished their job?

Your subject area will be defoliated of all plants that the goats can/will consume. Typically what will be left over is some brush, sticks and stems. Small trees may be debarked. Anything the goats leave behind we can clear out afterwards if desired.

How to Make a Homemade Poison Ivy Treatment

Though our goats will significantly stunt and slow the growth of any plants that they eat, it doesn't completely stop it. Steady maintenance  will be needed. If Poison Ivy is a concern for you, we have an all natural treatment to prevent excessive growth of Poison Ivy.


What you'll need:

3 cups of vinegar

1/2 cup of salt

1 tablespoon liquid detergent or soap (we use and recommend Dawn)


Mix  the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved. Then stir in the liquid soap/detergent and pour the mixture into a sprayer. Spray onto the green growing leaves of the plants, and wait a week. After a week, repeat and spray on any survivors. The best time to do this is during a dry spell, and do not spray on plants you wish to keep.
