Let’s Goat Buffalo puts its goats to work
SOUTH WALES, NY (WKBW-TV) – Jennifer Zeitler has the perfect team of workers. They are all goats. She started “Let’s Goat Buffalo” three years ago. Jennifer says, “This is the first goat grazing business in western New York State. We take goats to properties to graze invasive plants.
The town of Orchard Park hired Jennifer and her goats to do work on Japanese knotweed, an invasive species that is resistant to weeding. Jennifer says, “If you weed, you’ve spread out all the reproductive material. And it will come back even worse. soil in the form of their poo but weeds cannot grow back. “
The business occupied the goats. Jennifer says “Let’s Goat Buffalo” has been so successful that she is considering franchising it in other cities.
The goats will be at Birdsong Preserve starting September 8. Jennifer says goats “offer a natural alternative to the use of chemical pesticides / herbicides in the fight against invasive plant species.”
