Goats Stay Green with Christmas Trees

The female goats (called nannies or does) of the Goats to Go crew are at our southern farm in Florida for the winter. Our bucks, wethers, and 2019 goat kids have stayed behind in Georgetown, MA, along with our guardian dog Peanut, a 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 in 2018.  These help our goats to stay entertained and challenged by eating something “green”.  In December 2018, Timing was 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 your tinsel free & chemical free Tree Drop-offs at 201 Pond St Georgetown, MA, see our events schedule for dates and times.  No Drop-offs outside of these times. Come up the long driveway and right at the the pond and you will see us and the goats.

2020 Dates/Times: Saturdays January 4th & 11th, between 8:30AM-11:00AM

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 or have availability outside of these times. Any questions, please email us at greatrockfarm@gmail.com or call/text Michelle 978-352-0589.
