Goats & Weed Removal
Looking to try a new approach to your spring cleaning? Our goats “give a hoof” and can help you clean up poison ivy, bittersweet, multi-rosa flora, and other unwanted vegetation in your backyards and community parks. Why not call the Pros! Our goats are seasoned veterans and come with an extensive resume of projects from Dog Parks to Cemeteries. Not only do our goats take care of your invasive and nuisance weeds but you can enjoy watching them as they work. Our friendly goats come with everything they need to be happy and healthy as they munch away. We setup the fence, water, hay, and shelter for them to get the job done right and check on them to make sure them and you have what you need.
Cost Summaries: on average a backyard within 8 miles from our Farm starts at $1,200.00. Below is offered as a summary of costs and additional services we provide.
|SETUP COST:||started at $1,200.00* with the circled area (see map). Outside circle (see map) or special requirements to be quoted separately.||Setup includes delivery, setup of fences, setup of animal support, water, pickup, etc.|
|SITE VISIT:||Required for better job estimating.||We will need to visit the site before we arrive to determine conditions and geography and how to setup the job for the goats to be happy and safe.|
|COST PER DAY:||$150.00, per additional days after 2 days onsite||Generally jobs include 8-10 goats and/or sheep (sometimes we mix sheep with goats to increase the types of vegetation consumed). Generally goats are there a minimum of two days but may be supplemented by more goats and less time onsite.|
|Land (Human) Clearing:||$50.00 per hour/per man||As needed, for land clearing in excess of 10-15 ft for setup of fencing and access to job site|
Electro Fence: We use an electric net fence which is installed around area to be targeted. Your fencing is probably not appropriate or suffice to contain and keep our goats safe. The electro fencing keeps the good guys in and the bad guys out. Goats come with a trailer, which if the site allows, will be left for them, if not, other shelter will be evaluated.
Utilities and Shelter: We prefer to use a hose from domestic water and connection to an electrical outlet, but we have batteries and a water tank on board our trailer/shelter, if necessary. We need to know ahead of time to plan.
Dangers: The biggest danger to the goats is domestic dogs. That cute little dog can become a predator when not supervised even when you think he’s just playing. Their presence also scares goats. Electro fencing will keep them safe.
** Some plants are poisonous and need to be avoided. We will do the best we can to identify what we can during our site visit. Plus goats are smart and usually don’t eat what they don’t like.
We do what we can to ensure a safe location for the animals while on your property. However, if stolen or harmed, the cost to replace them would be $300.00 per animal. If injured, it would be the cost of the veterinarian bill.
