Our History

In 2014, after their last son left home for college, Will and Holly decided to follow their dream and bought a beautiful circa 1756 antique colonial farm house.   Other than raising chickens for eggs in 1996-1999, this was all new for them but as empty nesters they decided to use the farm as intended and in June of 2015 they became farmers with chickens and only all male fixed goats (a.k.a – wethers), who are quite comical and make them laugh every day.  Their farm pastures were about 30 years overgrown, with brambles, raspberry bushes, bittersweet vines, and much worse -poison ivy galore!  In just a short time of herding her baby wether goats around, Holly’s “working goats” ate through the old pastures, and as the goats grew and munched, their fields became usable again.  Now the once overgrown fields have a goat house, fencing all around but very little raspberries, saplings, bittersweet and above all – poison ivy in them!  As the summers come and go, our goats will weed out anything they missed or starts to take root and in a little while, our fields will be plowed for planting!  In winter 2015 after much thought, they decided it was a no brainer to offer for others the opportunity to clear their land without poisons, big machinery and above all – naturally – with goats!  So we at Wethering Heights Farm are now offering our services; “Have Goats – Will Travel” to your overgrown land to help you naturally get rid of the brambles and poison ivy in as much as just a few short days depending on how much land you need cleared.
