When Christmas trees have been stripped of ornaments and tinsel, they make great food for animals. The needles are full of vitamin C, they help control worms and they're enjoyed by the zoo's deer. They also add a little variety to the goats' usual diet of hay and grain.
“We’ve been asking for tree donations after Christmas for a number of years now,” said Cindy Lewis, who owns the farm with her husband, Scott. “The goats can devour a tree in a matter of minutes, they get very excited!”
