It's been my pleasure to work with Craig and his herd each year since 2009. Craig is a very knowledgeable and reliable resource. We use his herd to control brush, high grass and even small trees in new and established open spaces around our community. The environmental footprint is soft and the resulting order brought to our slopes and open spaces has become a key part of our vegetation management program.Jun 19, 2013
Healing Hooves has been coming each summer for several years helping me keep a 2+ acre vacant lot from being completely taken over by blackberry briers. They have greatly reduced the briers and other brush. It is an enjoyable experience to watch them at work and all the kids that come along with the Moms. It takes usually 2 or 3 days to complete the job. I look forward to their visit each summer.Jun 14, 2013
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Craig Madsen maintains professional membership in the Society for Range Management. Craig also works with and studies holistic management with Managing Change Northwest and the Savory Institute.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Using targeted grazing with goats to: 1) Strip and trample overgrown blackberries, Japanese knotweed, English ivy and other invasive plants. Our services are specially competitive and effective on steep slopes and riparian areas. 2) Maintain vegetation levels in retention ponds, whether fenced or non-fenced. We bring our own fencing (we've learned never to rely on OPF - Other People's Fences - when managing goats!) 3) Knock back noxious weeds and brush as part of a long term management plan for pasture health and reduced fire risk. 4) Rangeland management consulting to help you manage your own acreage using your own livestock (horses, goats, llamas, alpacas, cattle).
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Check references with past clients and Better Business Bureau ratings, just as you would any other contractor.
