They did it last year, and now they’re doing it again: Goats are eating your Christmas trees.
But only if you ask them to.
A herd of goats with Goatworx — a “cleanup” crew of sorts — in New Kent, is ready to devour Christmas trees in an alternative form of recycling.
Last year, Rick Stewart, the owner of Hurricane Hill Farm in Lanexa, told WYDaily feeding the trees to goats is a better alternative to sending them to landfills.
Goatworx will pick the trees up at the curb for a $10 fee.
Back on the farm, the trees are given to the goats as a source of winter food. Christmas trees have valuable vitamins and minerals, and also help prevent worms in the goats.
The curbside Christmas tree pick up will be from Dec. 27 to Jan. 13.
Trees should be free of ornaments, lights, tinsel and other decorations.
Those interested in giving their trees to the goats should call 757-284-2570 or visit goatworx.com to schedule a pick up time.
