Farm needs volunteers to snuggle with goats

(WVIR) Virginia’s first lady Dorothy McAuliffe was among the volunteers answering the call for “goat snugglers” at Caromont Farms Tuesday.

The farm put out a call for volunteers in January. They needed help bottle feeding the goats once they were born so the mothers could be milked to make cheese.

More than 2,000 volunteers signed up, and there’s even a waiting list to get on the waiting list.

“What more fun way to spend the day, a beautiful day, than to be here with these baby goats who are just such an important part of who we are in our agriculture economy, but also just a happy thing to be doing,” McAuliffe said.
