Do you guys ever rent the goats for weeding? If you do, we'd love to have them help us with our patch of english ivy :D

Sorry....but our goats our a little too spoiled for that kind of work. I suspect English Ivy is only delicious at certain times of the year and they just might not eat any until it hits that sweet spot of being tender but yet flavorful.
