THIS is a Real Job?! Yes, Please!


Have you ever had the urge to give up the regular 9-5 gig and do something a little crazy? Like spend your day hugging baby goats, maybe? You’re not alone. We’ve all had that dream. TRUST.

But imagine our astonishment when we discovered that not only is baby goat cuddling an actual, legit job, but THEY’RE HIRING. Caromont Farm in Esmont, Virgninia, is looking for an “assistant goat herds(wo)man in training.” And guys, there’s no actual goat experience required. You just need to be a goat lover. (Along with being able to lift 50 pounds and a few other minor things that you can read about here.)

Oddly enough, being a Spanish speaker is a plus. Bilingual baby goats? All of the sí!

In all seriousness, the job listing is for an internship which includes on-farm housing, weekly pay and a kitchen full of locally grown food. Oh, and did we mention baby goats? 120 of them or so. If this sounds like heaven, visit Caromont Farms on the web.

BRB. Brushing up my resume.
