what's happening

We employ goats and sheep to landscape our facility, part of our effort to minimize our environmental impact in ways small and large, from organic lawn care practices all the way to solar power.

Why goats?

They munch through overgrown areas, and even tame our epic infestation of poison ivy, because, who knew, they arent allergic.  And theyre super cute.  Its like a petting zoo out there when theyre working.


Why sheep?

They mow our lawns without using a gasoline mower, which is another step on our journey to earth-friendly nirvana.  We have designed our landscaping to require a minimum of maintenance expense (to keep costs low) and zero fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides (to keep that crap out of the environment).  We dont waste water sprinkling our grass, either, because we planted hardy vegetation.  

Do you own the animals?

No.  We know a lot of selling and servicing Subaru vehicles, but very little about sheep and goats.  The Goatscaping Company, a South Shore farming collaborative, brings the animals to Planet.


What about the poop?

We have a five acre nature preserve here, so were already used to lots of poop...wild turkey poop, coyote poop, osprey poop, poop we cant even identify.  It composts itself very quickly.
