Snuggling baby goats: A job this Maine farm has no trouble filling

Sunflower Farm in Cumberland — whose previous videos of baby goats in pajamas, among other things, have warmed millions of hearts across the internet — is back with a new video showing perhaps the least arduous farm job ever: Snuggling the baby goats.

The aforementioned video of goats in their PJs was posted almost exactly three years ago and has garnered 7.4 million views, while another one of the baby goats stampeding out of a barn a year earlier has racked up 4.2 million.

In their latest post, Sunflower Farm explains that baby goats destined for adoption by human families must be socialized with people, so they need people to come snuggle them. As farm jobs go, it seems like a pretty good one, and Sunflower Farm doesn’t seem to have any trouble finding volunteers.

“Hundreds of people come to hold our kids over the spring,” reads a farm caption under the YouTube posting of the snuggle montage. “So by the time they are 5-6 weeks old and getting ready for new homes, they completely trust people.”

In one scene, the baby goat is being cuddled alongside a kitten, because Sunflower Farm is apparently trying to overload the internet with cuteness.
