Quit your job today — we have something better than your current gig.
A farm in Esmont, Virginia recently announced that it is in need of volunteers to snuggle with its baby goats. Caromont Farm is home to more than 120 goats, who make fresh and aged cheeses for the farmers.
The request for some extra goat snugglers comes after discovering that 90 baby goats, or kids, will be born this February.
The position of expert goat cuddler will require you to love, feed and play with the baby animals after they're born. Honestly, what could be better?
In addition to helping clean the goats, NBC-29 shared that farmers bottle feed the kids four times a day and dress them in sweaters to ensure that they stay warm in the winter. The goats are also separated by size and kept in heated pens.
If you think your cuddling skills are up to par, Caromont Farms has a sign-up sheet online where people can volunteer for four-hour shifts from early February through March.
Until then, enjoy NBC-29’s cuddly goat footage.
