They (allegedly) produce some interesting dye colours, I think pinky.


You could root the cuttings and go into business selling fruit trees  :tree: :apple: :tree: :cherry: :tree: :pear: :tree:


You could chip them for mulch


You could weave a hedgehog shelter


Erm..... ;D   :wave:

You could offer them up to other goat, sheep and pig keepers to collect and feed to theirs... in return for  :goat: :goat: :goat:  cuddles obviously!  Like the idea of you starting a business growing them on too though!

Same boat here, except it’s rasp canes, cabbage and cauliflower greens.  I begrudge the composter them after so many years of being goaty treats 

I like the idea of swapping for  :goat: cuddles

Get yourself a pet rabbit instead. I tried fattening rabbits (meat rabbits however) on just brambles and it worked!
They also est cabbage bits and apple tree prunnings  :thumbsup:
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, geese rabbits and a little boy on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.

Some brilliant ideas. I think I'll give growing fruit trees a miss. I'm supposed to be cutting back on what I do, not finding another job. Hedgehog shelters? Good idea - I will try it if my hands will allow it. I think SD has probably had the most feasible idea. I'll put something on the Goaty Friends Facebook group. And hope
that someone on here who is near would like some.
