Christmas Tree Recycling – Give It To The Goats

christmas-tree-disposal

Kay and I were visiting our neighbor down the road at Mountain Ledge Farm – they have both Nubian and Alpine goats running around in their pasture and raises them for their milk. Six beautiful babies were born less than a month ago and they are beyond adorable!!

Courtney brought up a question that surprised both Kay and I; she asked, “What are you planning to do with your Christmas tree after the season?” “Well”, I replied, “we haven’t given it much thought, but it’s likely going to find its way into the woods or the landfill.” Courtney had a better idea…. Now everyone knows that goats eat just about everything, but did you know they eat Christmas trees?

Two great things came of this, a special treat for the goats and we have the opportunity to recycle our Christmas tree in a natural and very environmental method to keep these trees out of the landfill.
