Goats can help with discarding your live Christmas tree


Hanson, Massachusetts (WCVB)-- Now that the new year has officially begun, it is time to take down the Christmas decorations. For some people that means figuring out how to discard your live Christmas tree. Well, one family farm in Massachusetts has a solution-- goats.

Channell Homestead Family Farm has found a way to recycle Christmas trees by feeding them to their Nigerian Dwarf goats.

“They love them. They snack on them like it’s a special treat, like candy,” Christanie Channell stated, according to WCVB. The holiday staple is also good for the goat’s digestive health.

The Channells make sure that all the tinsel is off the trees and still alive and not dried out.

Their chickens also fancy the “Christmas snack” as well.
