WestSide Goat Girl, LLC is a woman and minority-owned and operated environmentally responsible, goat rental service focused on vegetation management. We are based in Gaston, Oregon and provide our brush and blackberry clearing services primarily around the Portland area, stretching from Astoria to Washougal, WA and sometimes beyond. We unfortunately no longer travel as far North as Seattle.
As business partners, we are passionate about caring for the earth responsibly. And, our goats are more than happy to help! They are our valued coworkers as well as our beloved pets! We take great care of them and always put their safety first. We are the third owners of this business having taken over from Don and Amy in 2020.
Raul is a long-time Oregonian, having raised his two, now adult, children here in Oregon with his wife Patricia. Working with the goats reminds Raul of when he was 4 years old doing chores on his Father’s farm. He is the lead when it comes to setting up the jobs, securing the fence, backing up the trailer, tying knots and all the really hard physical work!
Linda is an Oregon-native, after a life in high tech she's doing her best to live the life of a farmer and goat lady! She mixes up her time caring for her favorite ruminants and their health needs with business operations, answering the phone, responding to emails, invoicing and other office stuff. When possible she loves to join the goats out on the jobs and earn her own blackberry scratches!
Together, our goal is to help our customers deal with their brush clearing and landscaping needs in a fun and sustainable way!
