Goats Stay Green with Christmas Trees

The majority of the Goats to Go crew are at our southern farm in Florida for the winter. But there are some goats that stay behind in Georgetown, MA, along with our small herd of Dorset sheep and Dolly the llama.

After getting phone calls and emails the last couple years we decided to give Christmas trees a try for our goats to stay entertained and challenged by eating something “green”.  Timing is everything and Karyn Regal with WBZ Radio called us soon after our decision to accept “cleaned, debris and fire retardant free” Christmas Trees.  We’ll try to make use of the trees, after the goats have enjoyed the green parts.  Sheep are known to eat them too, so we will see if they are interested in munching on some trees.

We are calling it Project “Goat My Christmas Tree“. We will accept Tree Drop-offs at 201 Pond St Georgetown, MA between 9:30 – 11:30AM Saturday Dec 29th & Jan 5th. Come up the long driveway and around the pond and you will see us.

We will also have a donation box available at the drop-off location for MSPCA at Nevins Farm.  We can not do tree pick-ups at this time.  If another time needs to be arranged, please email us at greatrockfarm@gmail.com or call/text Michelle 703-994-8353.
