Christmas trees fed to goats

Posted on by royvickery |

According to a report in the Metro of 7 January 2019, a city farm in Kentish Town, London, is appealing for discarded Christmas trees to feed to its goats: ‘last year 60 trees fed seven goats … until April’.  Apparently goats love eating pine-needles, ‘which are also natural de-wormers’.
