We Rent Goats


A better way to get rid of noxious weeds; protect structures from wildfire.

Here’s the long and short of it…

We Rent Goats   We Rent Goats® does just what our name says. We rent herds of goats to remove noxious weeds from fields, acreage, pastures, open spaces, ditches, ravines, embankments… you name it and the goats can clear it.Our goal is to help you restore and protect your property—whether that means getting rid of non-native weeds that are ruining your acreage, or creating fire barriers around your home, ranch, outbuildings, or housing development. We even clear land around golf courses (and find a heck of a lot of golf balls in the process!).

Better than cows, sheep, equipment or sprays.

We Rent Goats   If you are a land owner, rancher, farmer, public lands manager, or property manager, you know the trouble noxious weeds can cause. The trick is getting rid of them:


  • You can graze cows and sheep. But these animals don’t like most weeds. And even if they do eat them, they can’t digest most seeds.
  • You can use a bulldozer. But that takes a lot of your time. And how do you clear weeds on steep slopes or embankments, or in ravines?
  • You can use herbicides. But they’re expensive and leave behind unwanted chemicals.

For many landowners, grazing goats in the best solution.

Customer Quotes

"We could not have been more pleased with the outcome. The goats not only cleared the area of weeds in five short days, they were a huge hit with our citizens. We look forward to working with the Linquists again next year."

"Into our fifth (5th) year of aggressive efforts in developing fuel reduction and fire breaks surrounding our 450 home subdivision… we discovered "We Rent Goats" and we are so thankful that we did. In addition to the pre-inspection and timing that went in to the project, they were able to add predictability to a process that can seem "impossible," and eat seeds prior to proliferation.
