The goats are coming.   Eight to ten goats will be the first to make way for Boyde’s Crossing, a new environmentally-sensitive and pocket neighborhood community in Norfolk, MA.  The goats, from Galasso Landscaping based in Walpole, MA, will arrive with an appetite the last week of August and are expected to munch away for 10 days.

The goats will clear invasive species and invasive weeds like poison ivy and thistle that are impacting wetland on the property. Goats have a long tradition of clearing land. Companies such as Google and Yahoo used goats to clear invasive weeds from their office campuses. The Vanderbilt mansion, which is a national historic site, also used goats.

The public is cordially invited to participate in the official ground-breaking of Boyde’s Crossing, Norfolk’s historic new environmentally-sensitive pocket community. The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, September 7th, at 11:00 a.m. at Boyde’s Crossing, 108 Main Street, Norfolk, MA 02056.

Public and business officials will assist with the ceremonial first shoveling and will speak briefly about the positive impact of this new, unique community.  Light refreshments will be served. 

Boyde’s Crossing is a thoughtfully designed neighborhood of sustainable homes promoting a healthy, comfortable lifestyle and a strong sense of community. Scheduled for occupancy next spring, Boyde’s Crossing is within walking distance of Norfolk center, the Town Commons, Public Library and the commuter rail station to Boston.
