Dinner and a show: These nine goats draw spectators while clearing an overgrown Maryland park

Read the full story in the Washington Post.

Nine goats from a farm in Centreville, Md., took up residence this week on a plot of land in Mount Rainier, where they have been eating poison ivy, honeysuckle and other overgrown plants since Monday afternoon.

But these aren’t just any goats. They’re professional goats. And they’re in high ­demand.

Eco-Goats, which offers its services to clear invasive species, overgrown brush and ­difficult-to-handle plants such as poison ivy, poison oak and brambles, has been in business for about 10 years. Owner Brian Knox said he’s recently gotten pickier about what contracts the goats will or won’t take.
