A Farm in Virginia Needs Volunteers to Cuddle with Its Baby Goats

A goats’ milk farm in Virginia is looking for volunteers to cuddle with a bunch of newborn goats

A farm in Esmont, Virginia, specializing in fresh and aged cheese from goats and cows, is looking for volunteers to take on an important task: cuddling its newborn goats for warmth.

By mid-February, Caramont Farms expects to have around 90 baby goats that will need to be bottle-fed several times a day and kept warm, with your help. The baby goats will be kept in heated pens and wearing small sweaters, according to NBC 29.

Volunteers are invited to sign up for four-hour shifts between February 7 and March 13, and no prior experience is necessary. Technically all the slots have already been filled, but after getting such a positive response, the farm is considering scheduling more sessions.

“It’s cold, it’s winter, there are going to be a lot of babies,” Izzy Zechini, Caramont Farms’ sales and events manager, told the Washington Post. “Our main goal is to just keep them healthy and warm.”
