We feed branches to the goats. They get 2-3 wheelbarrow loads a day. This means we don't have to buy feed for them, saving us lots of money and cutting down on food miles. People on our allotment site are happy for me to cut their hawthorn hedges as it saves them the job and also means they don't have to have bonfires.
Once the goats have eaten the leaves and twigs, I am left with firewood. We have loads of it! It is all being stored up for future use. At the moment, we have still not had the wood-fired boiler we promised ourselves installed at our house.
