ABOUT

Goats To Go, located at Great Rock Farm in Georgetown, MA, is a family-owned and -operated service that supports weed and brush removal projects, as well as events such as Talks & Workshops and Goat Yoga & Snuggle classes with our baby fainting goats. Our Goats love a good challenge when it comes to weeds and poison ivy projects. They help you to effectively clean up your land in the suburbs, backyards, and even parks and conservation lands to make them more enjoyable and usable. To give you the best results, we do our projects during the growing season, from mid-May to Labor Day and custom quote each job to ensure we bring the best equipment and best combination and number of goats to get the job done. Some lands are not easily accessible with large equipment and chemical/herbicide use is costly and proven to be less effective or inefficient in maintaining areas for multi-use purposes, due to continuous human recreational use and presence. Goats (brush-eaters, aka browsers) and sheep (grass-eaters, aka grazers) love to eat weeds and brush and are great at getting at all those hard to reach areas. Become a success story, use goats and sheep to effectively manage your challenging areas.

  1. Are your goats raised for dairy/slaughter?

    • neither. We raise them as our pets and use them for eating poison ivy and weed removal, herding with dogs, and therapy help animals.
