We use what nature provided to remove what nature provided too much of.
Goats have been used to control undesirable vegetation throughout
history. They’ve cleared brush on slopes, woodlots and hedge rows
long before brush cutters or dangerous herbicides were invented.
In 2007 the National Park Service decided to try using our goats to remove plants that were damaging a Civil War Gun Battery at Fort Wadsworth in NYC and they have continued to used them in various locations in the Gateway National Park System ever since.
Most of our Goats are retired Dairy and 4H goats, living the American Dream - They eat for a living!
Over the last 11 years hundreds of National, State and Town parks, New York and other City Parks,
The NYS DEC, Cemeteries, Colleges and Golf Courses, in five states have used Green Goats to
remove, Poison Ivy, Wild Rose, Phragmites, Japanese Knotweed, Porcelain Berry, Kudzu, Autumn
Olive, Bittersweet, Ailanthus and just and about every other unwanted plant or invasive weed.
Our goats are used at sites that do not lend themselves to economical, safe, permanent removal of unwanted vegetation and where herbicides and soil compacting equipment are not an viable option. Parks have estimated that using our goats saves more than 50% compared to cost of conventional methods. An added bonus is public interest. Parks have measured 20% plus bumps in attendance because people enjoying seeing the goats at work.
We have had some fortunate and positive media coverage of our projects. Some of it, as well as
photos of our goats and projects are included on our website.
Let our “Weapons of grass destruction”, as the NY Daily News once called them, work for you.
Its good for the goats, good for the environment and good for a park's budget.
