Sometimes, the cure for weeds can be worse than the disease. Apart from being expensive, some herbicides may contain dangerous chemicals that scientific studies have shown can cause cancer. Goats, meanwhile, love to eat weeds and have no harmful side effects, but who really needs to buy one?
Luckily, the good people at We Rent Goats will let you borrow a minimum of 100 critters for the nominal fee of just $350 to $550 per acre. The website describes goats as "natural-born weed eaters" and describes their grazing as "an ecologically beneficial way to clear unwanted weeds or brush and promote the growth of native grasses."
