You can officially rent goats on Amazon, because of course you can
Earlier this year, Amazon launched “Home Services,” where — as the title suggests — customers can order “services” as opposed to products. The offerings range from plumbing work to equipment assembly to iPhone repair to voice lessons — but perhaps the most notable service up for grabs is the ability to hire a goat grazer to tend your lawn. Yes, that’s right: Amazon now offers rent-a-goat landscaping. According to USA Today, goats are a popular way “to clear brush and undergrowth without using herbicides” in urban areas (which is news to us, and had we known we would have taken advantage of this a long time ago).
Here’s how the rent-a-goat service works: The goats are herded into a makeshift “pen” surrounded by temporary fencing, and then they go to work munching away on any plant present — because, in case you didn’t know, goats eat pretty much anything. Amazon backs us up on this one in their rent-a-goat FAQ:
Thanks to “Home Services,” if your property is deemed goat-appropriate, you can now easily rent a few furry creatures to munch on your unwanted vegetation. And in case you’re just not sold yet, Amazon’s description of the whole thing is also pretty delightful.
