We use what nature provided to remove what nature provided too much of.
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 Staten Island and they still use Green Goats in 2019.
Most of our Goats are retired Dairy Goats, 4H goats or family pets that sadly can't be kept any longer. We give them a new purpose
and a chance to live the American Dream - They eat for a living!
Our objective is to use our goats to stress and eliminate the invasive plants not just to clear them.
Over the last 13 years we have been in hundreds of National, State, City and Town parks, also the
NYS DEC, West Virginia DEP, Cemeteries, Colleges and Golf Courses as close Rhinebeck and as far
away as 625 miles to a National Park in Thurmond West Virginia, population 5.
Some of our most enjoyable projects are in big cities including six projects in New York City. We
love the reaction of and the joy our goats bring to amazed city folks. At one NYC park a thousand
people were there to greet them when they arrived. Other Parks have counted 20% plus bumps
in attendance because people enjoying seeing the goats at work. One prestigious golf course
even had to add 15 minutes to the T times so the golfers could watch the goats.
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 and attendance.
