Feeling the strain of your office job? Has stress reached an all-time high? Maybe you're looking for something a little more? Well, fortunately, you're in luck, as a Virginia-based dairy farm is looking to hire volunteers to cuddle their goats.
That's right. You - yes, you! - can be a professional goat cuddler.
Caromont Farm is mainly a dairy purveyor, and its base farm in Esmont, Virgninia houses several cows and goats, and as the farm strives to ethically care for the livestock in their possession, all the animals are grass-fed and cared for by someone they describe as an 'assistant goat herds(wo)man'. (That could be you. If you get the job, that is.)
According to the official job posting, in order to be an aforementioned goat-cuddling herdsman, these are the requirements the company expects from applicants:
Able to lift 50 pounds
Committed to local food and agriculture
Works well independently and on a team
Willing to take initiative
Excited to learn
Spanish speaking a plus+
Am I the only one that's a little confused as to why something like Spanish-speaking is required to hang out with goats?
Anyway, if you know someone in the Virginia area that is willing to get their snuggle on with a billy goat, feel free to send them to the official volunteer website, where they'll be able to sign up for a four-hour cuddle shift.
For the rest of you, I just want to know this:
Would YOU want to become a professional goat cuddler? Or does your fear of intimacy extend to livestock?
(Just kidding. I just wanted to make a creepy joke.)
