We have owned the land for two weeks now and progress has been slow. We have taken our two goats to the land several times to begin the clearing process. If you didn't know, we are trying to keep the land completely pesticide free. Using the goats to clear the land has two purposes: get rid of the kudzu and other invasive plants and natural fertilization. Osiris and Cami have worked hard to clear as much as possible but they do have their limits. The best part about using goats has been the looks we receive from the neighbors passing by. We have lived here for 13 years and still only know a small number of people on our street. This has given us the opportunity to share our plan with everyone and brighten the day of many passer-bys. Here are a couple of shots to show our love for the goats and the land. Feel free to drive past any time to say "hi" and give the goats a hug.
