Google mows with goats

Google posted on its official blog today — picture and everything — that it has been landscaping with goats.

This spring we decided to take a low-carbon approach: Instead of using noisy mowers that run on gasoline and pollute the air, we’ve rented some goats from California Grazing to do the job for us (we’re not “kidding”). A herder brings about 200 goats and they spend roughly a week with us at Google, eating the grass and fertilizing at the same time.

Goats may be a green signal for Google and evoke a “we’re not kidding” response to folks in Silicon Valley, but for Iwanna.com users, they are a way of life. Our users searched for goats more than 100 times last month!

Our most popular searches in April? Dogs. And tillers — a sure sign of spring in the Carolina mountains.
