Lawn Mowers Too Noisy? Try Sheep Instead

When a lawn looks unkempt, most people use a mower to get it back in shape. But Eddie Miller would like you to consider using something else instead — like maybe a few sheep, for example.

The 23-year-old Ohio man owns Heritage Lawn Mowing, a company that rents out sheep as landscaping aids. It may sound strange, but it’s eco-friendly and, at a dollar per sheep per day, less inexpensive than the fuel it often takes to power a mechanical mower.

Miller graduated from college last year and started the business when he had trouble finding a job. But he’s happy with how it all turned out, saying, “It’s a gateway to that whole rural dream. And with the type of recession we’re having, there’s stability in it.”

So now ewe now.
