About Us

Goat Busters was started in 2008 as a circumstance of the world economy, and public outcry for cleaner  solutions to modern problems. Jace Goodling had been raising and selling  Kiko meat goat breeding stock for over a decade, and had accumulated a  seperate "cull" herd of goats unworthy of registration (and the high  prices demanded by those goats). Since he couldn't eat them, and his  main income of house building dissipated like all other construction in  2008, he turned to making the goats pay for themselves by clearing land.  He teamed with recent Auburn University grad, Scott Wilcox, and Goat  Busters was off and running. 


Goat Busters  has done clearing jobs for vineyards, private backyards, and along  country club golf courses, as well as pasture improvement, creek bed,  fence line, and field margin clean-up, and poison ivy,  honeysuckle, and  general weed eradication.

Jace  Goodling was born and raised in central Virginia, graduated from  Washington and Lee University, and has spent a lifetime building a  reputation of quality, reliability, and customer-oriented service beyond  compare. He founded Goodling Enterprises, L.L.C. in 1996, providing  Project Management for owner-builders, as well as being a Virginia  licensed Class A Builder. Goat Busters is just the latest tangent in a never-dull journey through Life. 


Goat Busters is owned and operated by Goodling Enterprises, L.L.C.
Since 1996, making better sense in a crazy world.
