    Do goats really need that much land ?

    I don't think it's the land so much as they eat EVERYTHING.

    ETA: I missed the part about 2 acres... I guess the plus side is that you wouldn't have to mow!

    D-Dog is pretty spot on Riley , lots of goats do get by with little area but they will eat EVERYTHING within reach
    I dont think you need 2 acres to be honest for a goat but it doesn't hurt . You'd still have to hard feed the goat either way really.

    I knew someone who had a goat in a suburban backyard and had to regretfully rehome it because she had not realised they are such good climbers and she just could not prevent him from eating her washing.

    They are often used on farms to get rid of weeds like blackberry bushes. It's not their favourite food, but if they are tied up and it's the only thing in reach, they will eat the bushes down to the ground.
