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


Free spins 72890

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