The Welsh family using goats as an eco-friendly alternative to lawnmowers!

A Welsh family has started a unique business thought to be the first of its kind in the UK. Dawn Hart and Richard White, from Carmarthenshire, started Bio Goats 2 Rent three years ago.

Marketed as an "eco-friendly weed and brush control company", the family has a herd of 200 goats for hire to clear out brambles, weeds and rough patches of ground. The "gardeners" are each able to munch up to eight pounds a day.

Their iron stomachs make goats the perfect animal for the job. The animals are able to feast on harmful species like poison ivy, poison oak, blackberry, rose bush, and thistle without spreading the weed through their droppings.
