A farm in Silicon Valley is offering remote workers around the world to have their animals in your Zoom video chats.
For less than $100, you can request a cameo appearance in your video chat from Sweet Farm's llamas, goats, and other farm animals.
The project is called Goat 2 Meeting and allows people to bring farm animals into their work conference calls.
Since Goat 2 Meeting opened up in mid-March, more than 300 requests have been made. Sweet Farm's animals have already made appearances in meetings for Fortune 500 companies and tech startups. In one virtual happy hour for a law firm, lawyers brought their kids along to the video call to meet the animals and get a virtual tour of the farm.
People can pay anywhere from $65 to $250 for various interactions with the animals, which include goats, sheep, pigs, cows, turkeys, and llamas.For $65, you get a 20-minute virtual tour of the farm for up to six call participants. For a bigger meeting, you can pay $100 for a 10-minute animal cameo or $250 for a 25-minute virtual tour.
Sweet Farm is also offering free virtual field trips to schools and nonprofits.Sweet said the farm had already held field trips for schools in the United Kingdom and Brazil and would soon provide a virtual tour for a homeless shelter in North Carolina.
