Getting rid of Brambles
« on: November 07, 2012, 09:10:17 pm »
Anyone got any good tips for getting rid of brambles? Two of our fields have been partly taken over by them, I'd been busy with a brushing hook to clear them, but was wondering if anyone had other ideas or tips for stopping them coming back. Thanks

Goats  ;D
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.

Goats to take the tops off, followed by pigs to dig the roots out.

Goats - where in Wales are you?  Would you like to borrow some?
