We haven't turned out goats out in the garden, but we do give them veggie scraps from the kitchen. They like tomato skins, black eyed pea hulls, and cantaloupe seeds....so far!

I believe it is tomato plants that are bad for them. Also, too much, too quick of anything they aren't used to can cause problems. That is why I always hand pick stuff of deliver it to them. That way, I know they are only getting a little of something new...like a treat!!

Tomatoes are members of the nightshade family, and too much of the plant itself can be bad. But I have fed the goats bad or bug-eaten tomato fruits, and they love them. I just flip them into the pasture.

mine eat green beans, sliced squash or zuccini, peaches, green apples, sunflowers. Kids nibbled on dill, but moms turned away. Peppers are popular. Plums, too. I would not let a goat in a garden, though, because they will compact the soil with their pointy little hooves.
