Napa’s Charming Gardeners: our Babydoll Sheep!

Apr 18, 2013

In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we’ve brought in some eco-friendly lawn mowers at Calistoga Ranch! Instead of using gas-powered weed whackers, which can be noisy and produce harmful emissions, we prefer using babydoll sheep.

Auberge Resorts is committed to maintaining green initiatives in all of our properties, and what an adorable way to do it! At only two-feet tall, the babydoll sheep are not only extremely docile (and cute), but great at munching their way through tall grasses behind the lodges. When they aren’t helping clear the brush at Calistoga Ranch, the babydolls are contained by solar-powered fencing. Next time you visit Napa Valley, be sure to take a stroll through the vineyards at Calistoga Ranch and check out our furry, friendly, and cute gardeners!
