Goats on duty in Tryon

Goats return to the Town of Tryon lot near IGA. Through a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation, the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) has hired goats to help eradicate Kudzu (and other non-native and invasive species) at the site, twice a year, for three years; this is the second year. On Sept. 29, Wells Farm brought in a new crew of 20 goats, accompanied by Moses, an Anatolian Shepherd there to protect the goats. The goats will be on site for about two weeks. (photo submitted by Pam Torlina)
