Goatworx LLC provides an earth friendly alternative to machine powered mowers and chemical plant killers.
Goats can perform exceptionally well on tough terrains, spaces where motorized mowers can't go, and in places where people probably shouldn't. Goats can eat a wide range of nuisance vegetation and they love Poison Ivy.

Don't let the weeds win!
Our roadsides, fields, shores, woodlands, and backyards are becoming overrun with invasive species and other unwanted vegetation. Machines often can't get to the problem areas. Using human hands to cut or pull is very labor intensive. And herbicides can prove dangerous to our waterways, soil, and our pets.
If left alone, invasive plants can strangle valuable trees threatening important diversity. Open fields and backyards can become overgrown which creates a loss of habitat for wildlife and birds, and can negatively affect the enjoyment of our outdoor spaces.
How it all works
Goatworx LLC specializes in the management of brush and weeds in backyards, riparian buffers, BMP Retention Ponds, and properties under five acres.
Managed annual grazing can be an effective way to minimize poison ivy, kudzu, and invasive seed-bearing weeds while promoting the health of native species. You'll discover that not only do goats provide an environmentally beneficial job at converting unwanted weeds into healthy soil, they also amuse communities by displaying their unique brand of "agri-tainment".
Before the animals arrive we will install portable electric netting that is energized by a solar powered charger. The goats are trained to respect the netting and stay inside of it.
Once the animals are delivered they get right to work. Most often they remain on the jobsite until the project is completed.
We visit our team routinely to perform health checks, provide water, minerals, and to check the condition of the netting.
