Social Distance With Goats In Georgetown
Did you know that goats have a special talent? No, it's not fainting, screaming, dancing or any of the other viral videos you've seen! It's their gift for devouring plants that are extremely irritating to humans.
In fact, the goats of Goats To Go at Great Rock Farm in Georgetown, Massachusetts spend their summers gnawing away weeds and poison ivy from from local golf courses, businesses, and private homes.
After their busy season they retire to the farm for some downtime where they are available for visits with humans.
In addition to their immunity to poison ivy, goats are also immune to the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic making them excellent social distancing partners!

In fact, hanging out with goats is so good for your mental and physical health, MTV featured Goats To Go on their show, 16 & Recovering about young addicts and their quests for sobriety.
