To Keep Their Vines Pest-Free, This Vineyard Is Getting Help From An Unlikely Source

For this vineyard, using an odd kind of animal to keep the pests away is perfectly normal.

At the Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa, the use of pesticides is a taboo topic. Instead of spraying chemicals to keep the bugs at bay, they’ve come up with a…different idea (to say the least). They’re called Indian runner ducks.

Yes, you read that right! More than 1,000 waterbirds call the vineyard their home and workplace.

Part tourist attraction, part smart business practice, watch how this eco-conscious estate uses the ducks to keep their vines safe from pesky snails.

I could watch this all day long.

I prefer my wine with a sideshow of ducks running past. This is the greatest!
