Only in Berkeley

Coming back to my office from lunch today I did a doubletake. And then another.

On Heinz Avenue in slightly industrial west Berkeley, there was a large farm truck, with its ramp down. Gleefully charging out of the truck was a large drove of goats, being herded into a derelict, hugely overgrown site. I know this is the future home of a new Berkeley Bowl (the world’s greatest supermarket), so I guessed this was a cost-effective, environmentally friendly way to reduce the thistle-ridden site to something manageable.

Sure enough, it turns out Goats R Us has been running for the last 11 years, based in next-door Orinda. I’m still shaking my head in wonder.
